This is the perfect place to enjoy sea kayaking for the first time or to improve your skills. Explore the sheltered sea lochs of Loch A Chadh-Fi and Loch Laxford, see John Ridgway’s 1966 Atlantic rowing boat and end the day with hot showers and home baking.
Hear about how people lived in the past and how crofters live today around the sea loch, a remote fringe of Europe. Learn about our different seaweeds, shellfish and sea birds, all with stunning mountain views of Ben Stack, Arkle and Foinaven as your backdrop.
If you wish, it is possible to paddle to Ardmore, the remote crofting township where the Ridgway’s have lived for over 50 years, to view John Ridgway’s Atlantic Rowing boat that he rowed across the north Atlantic with Chay Blyth in 1966 and Rebecca Ridgway’s kayak that she paddled becoming the first woman to kayak round Cape Horn in 1992.
We paddle back to the adventure school for hot showers, tea and home baking.
Sea kayaking days are led by our experienced guides. Their skills and knowledge will ensure your safety while allowing you to enjoy the activities and the natural beauty of our remote wilderness environment. All specialist and safety equipment is provided.
We usually offer sea kayaking days on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, but we are flexible, so please do enquire if you wish to take part on a different day.
You’ll be met by your instructor at 10am at our car park. We aim to have you back to your car at 4.30pm after showers and home baking.
Please telephone or email Rebecca in advance to check availability.
