Sea kayaking – half day

These sessions will provide an opportunity to learn about sea kayaking in one of the country’s finest sea kayaking destinations. Anglesey is a mecca for paddling at all levels.

Our half-day sessions  run on Anglesey’s north west coast out of Borthwen beach, Rhoscolyn. With so many isolated coves, islands and sea caves there is always plenty to see and explore. You will be supported in doing this by an experienced local instructor helping you to learn the skills you need and acting as your guide.

The sessions will last for three hours (with two hours on the water) and will be run by fully qualified and experienced local kayaking instructors. No previous experience is necessary and all kayak clothing and equipment will be provided.

You will meet for your session at our base in Rhoscolyn where there are changing facilities, toilets and showers. Most sessions then take place a short walk away at Rhoscolyn beach. After a short period of instruction in the bay where you will familiarise yourself with your kayak, we will head out to explore the local coastline.

Our sea kayaking taster sessions are for people aged 16 plus.

Adults – £45

“Had a great time, learnt new skills and had so much fun even though I capsized twice!!!!”

“Andy took us Sea kayaking today. It was totally brilliant! He was calm, professional, friendly and safe. He was fantastic with the kids (teen and tween) and they both had a blast. He was knowledgeable about the history of the area as well as the wildlife. It was a really great afternoon, we would highly recommend and would definitely do it again when we’re in the area.”

“We did the half day sea kayaking course and went out with Andy. What an absolute fantastic day we had! Andy was a fantastic guide, patient and knowledgeable, we got to see lots of wildlife and will definitely be back for another trip!”
