Sea Kayaking Day or Half day trips around Gairloch, Loch Ewe and Loch Maree.
We can take you on a full or half day kayaking adventure around our wonderful coastline. Our trips are run by local guides who know the area well and are experts on wildlife spotting. We want you to enjoy a relaxed paddle and will choose a venue, depending on your experience, local tides and the anticipated weather conditions.
All the equipment you need is provided including sea kayaks, buoyancy aids, spray decks, paddles etc. All you need to bring is a waterproof, some lunch and a sense of adventure.
If you are on the NC500 route and fancy a break then a day or half days kayaking will give you opportunity to see another side of Scotland’s beautiful coastline.
Whether you are taking to the sea for the first time or you want to be shown around the area by an experienced local guide, book a trip with us. We regularly spot seals, otters, white tailed eagles, skuas and have gannets diving around our boats. Let us take you safely on a Kayaking Adventure.
Canoe Loch Maree – A canoe or kayak on Loch Maree and around its islands is a wonderful experience.
Isle Maree, has the remains of a chapel, graveyard, holy well, and holy tree on it, believed to be an 8th century hermitage. Isle Maree also attracted the sick and the insane, who drank from its holy well and plunged into the loch three times in the hope of a cure. The same island also contains ancient stands of oak and holly which have been linked with ancient Scottish druids. Relict Caledonian pine forest, potential views of black throated divers, white tailed eagles. And who wouldn't want to follow in the footsteps of Queen Victoria?
A major feature of the Loch is the large number of islands which it holds, the larger islands contain pristine remnants of ancient Caledonian Pinewood. Some of these Scots Pine trees are over 350 years old, and stand on ground which has changed little in the last 8000 years.
We provide all the equipment you need including canoes, buoyancy aids and paddles. All you need to bring is some lunch and a sense of adventure.
Our guides know the waters well, to avoid challenging paddling, we are looking for you to relax and enjoy the scenery and beauty of the area. An ideal break for a day away from travelling the NC500.
We also offer Stand up Paddle board activities at Gairloch Canoe and Kayak Centre. If you already know how to SUP why not hire a Stand up Paddle board from us for the day, our sheltered bay is perfect for practising your balancing skills and you never know if a seal might pop up to see what all the fun is about!
