This is my programme of guided sea kayak expeditions. My local knowledge will ensure we paddle and explore some of the most stunning scenery around. The 5 day camping expeditions are fully catered, so after a day on the water you can relax and enjoy meals cooked from fresh ingredients. For all of these trips you will need to be self sufficient in paddling gear i.e. boat, paddle and appropriate paddling clothing.
