The region around Oban known as the Firth of Lorn lends itself beautifully to sea kayaking day trips, with a multitude of venues to start from. We can offer beginner sea kayaking trips, right through to more advanced guided days on the sea. If you are up in the area for a kayaking holiday, then make the most of our local knowledge and experience and let us take you to explore areas that you wouldn’t be comfortable exploring on your own.
Explore the Oban area
Making use of the convenient facilities at Ganavan Sands or Oban Bay, we can get you out on the water in sheltered situations that let you develop your skills and enjoy the stunning surroundings. Both these venues offer great interest for your first time sea kayaking, we can stay in the calm bays around Oban and Ganavan or venture out into the off-shore islands with their abundance of sea life. I can’t remember a day out in this area when we didn’t see a seal or too with their inquisitive heads popping out of the water.
Explore the Slate Islands
If you’ve tried sea kayaking before and have been out at least 5 days out on the sea then these locations are for you, with their tide races and isolated coastlines you’ll have a day on the sea you’ll remember for a long time. Setting out from Cuan or Easdale the sea kayaking has on a whole new feel to it, a wider expanse of sea and more committing crossings. But with the challenge comes the reward, from Easdale the east coast of Mull is a comfortable days paddle, and once there the scenery and wildlife is breath taking. Or explore the closer islands of Fladda and Belnahua. With its remote location it is very common to see golden or sea eagles in the skies above, wild deer roam the hill side, otters swim around the shoreline, not to mention more seals than you can poke a paddle at.
Cost £80 per person per day. This includes the hire of the sea kayak and all the equipment you’ll need, as well as the local knowledge and experience of our sea kayak guide.
