Once cars are packed and destination agreed we will head over to our launch point.
Before we embark on our days wonderful journey we will have a briefing. Plus make sure everyone has their lunch, cameras and paddle. Then as a group we will meander along the magnificent coastline enjoying the scenery The Isle of Mull has to offer. Being a small group gives you flexibility to stop and take photos and look into that gulley. You can also stop on a beach for a dip or carry on a little further to a tranquil lunch stop. The days sea kayak trip really does belong to the group. However, at some point we will need to tear ourselves away from the alluring seascape and head for the cars. Once landed the group will help each other carry and load kayaks and kit. We can then share stories and laughter over the days paddling.
