Sea Kayak Plockton


Culgorm, Drumbuie, Kyle, Highland, IV40 8BD

    The idyllic village of Plockton and its sheltered waters provide one of the best locations in Scotland for learning and improving your kayak skills.

    Sea kayaking out of Plockton enables you to experience breathtaking panoramic views of the Isle of Skye, Applecross, the Torridon mountains and reach coral beaches only accessible by boat.

    Under the guidance of Alison French, a fully qualified sea kayak instructor, you can admire an abundance of wildlife by kayak. Explore the fascinating coastline and get close up to otters, seals and porpoise.

    You can also explore the Isle of Skye's remote and inaccessible coastline, with its Cuillin mountains providing a spectacular backdrop. Here you may see basking sharks and minke whales.

    The sea around the Isle of Skye presents the kayaker with an array of conditions to hone skills and play in. The Atlantic tides squeeze through the narrows of Kylerhea and Kyle of Lochalsh, presenting the more experienced paddler with rougher water to practice techniques.

    You will be equipped with top quality sea kayaks, paddles, clothing and safety gear, and will receive expert tuition in a guaranteed small group environment. Coaching is highly personalised and professional, with your safety and comfort paramount.

    Your day will be tailored to your needs so that your sea kayak experience is an exceptional one. 'Learn to sea kayak days' and multi-day courses are suited to complete beginners, where you will get to grips with the basic techniques of sea kayaking. Once some basic skills have been mastered you will be guided on a coastal journey discovering scenery and landscapes few will experience.
