31/10/20 Despite everything, we have had a very busy and successful season, and are now ready for a break. We will be closed for a while, to recharge for next year. From February onwards we will be open for groups of intermediate and advanced paddlers for skills development, and from March we will offer our usual wide range of kayak experiences, including Skye Camping Expeditions, Skills Courses and more half day and full day sessions.
Thank you to everyone who has been out with us this year and of course all our hardworking staff, without whom all this would not have been possible.

10/06/20 We are expecting to open our doors to our local community, following the Scottish Government’s announcement on 18th June. We have measures in place to minimise the spread of Coronavirus. Please respect travel restrictions which will still be in place and only come out kayaking with us if you live within the allowed travel distance. At this stage we do not know what this is, so please refer to the Scottish Government website for more details. We do take bookings, and have a very generous cancellation policy in place during these exraordinary times.
03/06/2020 We are delighted that we are allowed to go kayaking again. At the moment it’s ony personal kayaking, but we are hoping to be able to offer sessions to local people in Phase 2 and more in Phase 3. We are following the Guidance of the Scottish Canoe Association, which fully complies with Scottish Government Guidance. We hope to see you soon.
06/05/2020 Unfortunately we have been closed since the beginning of the UK lockdown, and will continue to be closed until restrictions are lifted. We take bookings for later in the year, and remain flexible in case these have to be changed due to restrictions. We are also looking into safe ways of operating, when we are allowed to do so, including social distancing and hygiene measures. Please do get in touch.
