Price tbc per person (price excludes accommodation and food)
The waters around Oban, the islands of Kerrera, Seil, Luing and surrounding areas offer some of the best sea kayaking that Scotland has to offer. Seil, Easdale, Luing, Scarba, Shuna and the Garvellachs as well as numerous smaller islands all vary in geology and geography. This location offers the sea kayaker areas of tide and moving water, and with careful planning can be avoided or used to our advantage.
Given the fickle nature of the climate of the west coast of Scotland, the itinerary will be flexible and based on the weather. If the weather forecast is looking settled we will pack our kayaks and camping for a few days. If it is more challenging we will plan day paddles from our base.
This trip is jointly run with Alice McInnes (Sea Kayak Alice) an experienced coach and guide from Edinburgh, who runs kayak trips and coaching in Scotland.
