Our Full Day Kayak Adventures on Skye are suitable for completre beginners, but intermediate and advanced tours for more experienced kayakers are also available.
On a full day trip you have maximum chance of spotting wildlife, sometimes otters, dolphins or porpoise. Really immerse yourself in nature and slow down your day to take it all in. No matter what previous experience you have, we will introduce you to or refresh the skills you need to give you a relaxed but active day out and our British Canoeing qualified coaches will give you little tips throughout the day to make your paddling more efficient. We believe small groups provide the best experience and are more responsible in our fragile natural environment, so we generally operate in a 1:6 ratio.
£105 per person, discount available for groups of 4 or more.
Also check out our Private Sessions for Full Day trips for just your family or group.
