Intromediate  - Intermediate Trips and Coaching

Below are details of this years' trips that you can book on right now ...

Each trip has a different focus which may be wildlife, history, geology or a combination of these and can be adapted to suit you.  They are suitable for adults, older people and accompanied young people aged 16 or over who have a moderate level of kayaking fitness. Feel free to contact us to discuss your needs and interests.

Located within reach of two Areas of Outstanding National Beauty we have plenty of fantastic sites to choose from. Anglesey and the Llŷn Peninsula have some of the most challenging tidal conditions in the UK, your guide has the tidal knowledge to select appropriate locations for you to paddle. They can also interpret the local wildlife, history, folklore and landforms.  The exact venue we will visit on each trip will be selected based on tidal and weather conditions combined with the ability and interest of the group. See the themed trips below to find out more about some of the types of experience we offer.
