Ridgway Adventure · Sea kayaking
Sea kayak weekend
Full sea kayak weekend programme
We will meet you at the Rhiconich Hotel at 10.30am, drive to our car park, unload your equipment into our vehicle, then a 10 minute walk on footpath to the Adventure School. (Please note it is not possible to drive to the Adventure School.) Meet our staff and settle in, followed by a session on the water introducing you to the kayaks and some basic strokes. After a hot lunch we paddle around the sheltered Loch a' Chad-Fi putting into practice the strokes and techniques returning to the Adventure School.
Morning: prepare for a sea journey and learn to pack a kayak. Afternoon: we set off from the Adventure School to paddle at an even pace around the varied and broken coastline of Loch Laxford until we reach our camp site. We provide instructional advice on kayaking skills and good technique, whilst taking in the variety of bird and marine life amongst stunning scenery.
Pack up the camp and continue the sea journey out to Ardmore Point and the Atlantic coastline. In the late afternoon we return to the Adventure School for hot showers followed by tea around the wood burning stove. There will be time to reflect on your recent experiences before celebrating your achievements over a farewell dinner at our comfortable loch side accommodation.
Breakfast will be served at 8.00am and depart to the 'real world' by 10.00am.
N.B. The programme may vary due to weather conditions.
