What to expect from a guided Sea Kayaking Trip on the Sound of Arisaig?
Apart from the stunningly beautiful coastline and aqua marine seas, each day will be tailored to the group. The group size will be intimate and friendly with a maximum 1:5 ratio. Every morning we will meet up and talk through the days weather and conditions. From here we will together plan a trip that gives you the most from the day. 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, check everyone has their lunch, cameras and paddle. Then as a group we will meander along the magnificent coastline enjoying the scenery The Sound of Arisaig has to offer. Being a small group gives you flexibility to stop and take photos or look into a gulley. You can also stop on a white sandy 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 before sharing stories and laughter over the days paddling.
