Had 2 days with Ben, Martin & Bramble as part of a large group. Highly recommended. they take the time before you get on the water to demonstrate the very important planning aspects of the trip. On the water they split the group into experienced and not and made sure everyone got what they wanted out of the day. They built trust in everybody's ability to make their own decisions, but always with safety as paramount. Very easy teaching style that comes with year's of experience. Good equipment if you need it. Oh, and fun. Lots.

Excellent coaching - we learnt so much, and were so well looked after - in a weekend of challenging weather conditions! Expertly guided to a sheltered area, and clearly instructed how to navigate safely. Highly recommended.

This was a brillient adventurous day out - we couldn't recommend it more! Ben, our guide for the day, took me and my partner out for her 30th birthday. We wanted to see the coast and lots of wildlife - Ben was happy to deliver. We got to see the wildlife up close, including puffins, seels, porpoises and more! It's been years since we've been kayaking so our skill levels were low, but Ben was very accomodating and made sure we were always comfortable with what we were doing. Ben provided lots of helpful tips as we went along and made us feel safe the whole time, what a great guide. Before we set off for the day, Ben went through how to safely plan a sea kayaking tirp in an unexpected amount of detail, taking into account wind direction/speed, swell and current timings ect. This was extremely interesting and valuable, and has provided us with a solid starting point if we want to plan our own trips in the future. Towards the end of the day my partner started to feel sea sick, but Ben imediately jumped into acction made sure we quickly got back to shore and she soon felt better without incident. Ben went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience - a brillient guide. We would definately like to go again!

Having paddled a little on lakes and rivers we were looking for an introduction to sea kayaking, starting to understand tide, current, wind, waves. We could not have chosen better. After letting our guides know what we wanted to do we had a gentle introduction to relevant theory before taking to the water with quality gear and a sense that we were in safe hands. Martin and Ben are super experienced and qualified guides. We were encouraged to let them know what we wanted to do and what we didn’t want to do, and were gently encouraged to try new things. Add to the kayaking the extraordinary wildlife - puffins, fulmars, seals, porpoises to mention but a few - and the knowledge and stories of our guides - and we had a superb day to remember. Hopefully the first of many sea kayaking experiences. Top marks to Martin and Ben.

This is our second time this year booking with Sea Kayak Guides. We had a guiding session in July with Ben, and enjoyed it so much we came back to increase our skills for 2 days personal coaching. During our 2 days we had Ben and Rachel instruct and guide us, and I can not speak highly enough on how they provide you with the skills and encouragement you need to be more confident on the water. We really liked how Ben and Rachel both start out the day by planning routes with you based on the conditions, using maps to write on and relevant apps for weather, wind, swell, tide times etc. We’ve taken these skills to become more confident to rock hop and paddle on our own. We will definitely be back to enhance our skills further. Communication with the team was great.
