During the space of a couple of days you learn all the basics of sea kayaking. If you have done it before this can easily be adapted. The course include boat handling skills, navigation whilst on the water, trip planning (including some basic tidal knowledge) and essential rescue techniques. You try out a selection of different boats and paddles. Based from Glenuig, you head out each day to a different location so you are also able to explore the local area and go for some amazing journeys whilst learning from a top level coach. Days start at 9:30 am and return to base at the end of the day where there are hot showers, a drying room and great food and drinks on offer! Plus your en suite bedroom of course.
Look out for basking sharks, dolphins and Minke whales, especially during late spring& summer. Scores of seabirds can be seen whilst paddling around the Sound of Arisaig. At almost any time of the year you might spot Golden Eagles and Sea Eagles (can you tell them apart?). And of course you have every chance of seeing otters fishing and playing . . . so long as you quietly keep your distance!
