Kayak Camping

From 2021 we’re offering Kayak Expeditions in the South of Skye and surrounding areas.

Pack your tent, a nice bottle of wine and some delicious food into your kayak and go off on an adventure. We will journey along the coast, camp on remote beaches and enjoy the evening sun, have a good night’s sleep and then continue to explore the coast. Does this sound like the kind of thing you would like to do? Come and join us!

What’s included?

We provide all kayaking and camping equipment, kayak, paddle, buoyancy aid, paddle jacket, wetsuit, spraydeck and wetsuit boots, tent, camping mat, stove, pot set, dry bags.

You will normally bring your own sleeping bag but some may be available to hire.

Dinner and breakfast will be provided as an optional extra from a menu. Alternatively we will happily make suggestions for suitable camping food if you want to bring your own.

The weather

Of course we can never guarantee a sunny camp with glistening calm seas. We will try our best to find a location that allows us to go ahead with the expedition. If all fails, we will take you on day trips with options of camping at the base or somewhere close by.
