Join us on Sunday 20th September for an amazing Singles Kayaking afternoon.
Our carefully chosen team includes some of the UK’s top Sea Kayak coaches. We will take you on an unforgettable journey to discover rocky headlands with spectacular cliffs, secret coves with golden sand beaches and deep calm estuaries that cut their way into ancient Oak forests… All this makes Devon one of the worlds premier Sea Kayak destinations.
Dartmouth and the surrounding coast is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and our kayaks let you get right in close to the shore where no other boats can go. They glide easily between beautiful reefs and rocky outcrops letting you sneak up close to amazing wildlife. This really is the ultimate way to explore the coast!
TRIP HIGHLIGHTS – Exploring secret passages between amazing rocky islands – Have a curious wild seal resting her flipper on your kayak – Paddling into huge sea caves where pirates may have hidden their treasure – Fishing for mackerel or catching fascinating creature in one of our lobster pots – Relaxing on a remote sandy beach and roast marshmallows on a driftwood fire
Highly qualified guides will give you an expert briefing and help you get quickly relaxed on the water.
We have over 30 top of the range Sea Kayaks, which are comfortable, stable and glide easily through the water. We provide you with all the other technical equipment that you’ll need including buoyancy aids and waterproof breathable kayak jackets. Everyone gets a dry bag which which goes in a watertight hatch in the kayak so you can be confident your lunch, phones, cameras will stay dry. We also have sun caps and neoprene straps to secure your sun glasses. You can leave anything you don’t want to bring with you in our secure storage.
Our guides all carry waterproof digital cameras so you can enjoy your trip while we capture the memorable moments; we will send you a link so you can download the pictures. And most importantly we include the marshmallows for the camp fire!
WHAT DO I NEED?
If it’s a hot day all you’ll need is shorts and t-shirt! However there is plenty of dry storage in the kayaks so please also bring…
– A warm jumper and trousers – A pair of shoes, sandals or flip-flops that you don’t mind getting wet – Pack lunch and drink for day trips; A snack and drink for half day trips – We usually have a break on a beach so bring swimming gear if you’d like to go for a splash!
You don’t need a wetsuit. It’s very rare that anyone falls in the water and it’s much more comfortable to paddle in light clothing.
WHAT EXPERIENCE DO I NEED? You don’t need any experience at all, you don’t even need to be the sporty type or be able to swim. In our comfortable, stable kayaks and under the expert guidance of our coaches you will quickly relax and enjoy your trip. For those who consider themselves to be fit and adventurous there is endless possibilities for excitement.
IS IT EASY? YES! Pretty much everyone who gets into one of our Sea Kayaks is amazed at how easy it is. They are stable and they all have a retractable fin at the back so they track naturally in a straight line. Even the least fit will glide along faster than walking speed with about the same amount of effort as riding a bike on the flat. Our super stable double kayaks also have a rudder at the back to make steering even easier.
