“An exhilerating day of sea kayaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

I went along with my wife and teenage daughters after reading some great previous reviews for Sea Kayaking Scotland, and we weren't disappointed. After a safety briefing and collection of all the necessary gear from Kenny`s place we travelled a few miles up the road and were soon on the water in a sea inlet off Seil island. From initial teach in we progressed to manoeuvring skills and before we knew it we were following the coast in to the "real" open sea. Who would have believed that within a day we'd be navigating strong currents, eddies and a 2 to 3 foot swell in our kayaks.....but we did, and none of us capsized !! Thanks again Kenny for a really superb day and excellent, sure-handed tuition. Great exercise too ! The Beswick family.

“Seakayak Islay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Kenny arranged a fantastic seakayaking trip around Islay for 2 of us. He put in a huge amount of preparation looking at tide and wind predictions and importantly distillery opening times! He was good company, provided good quality kit, is very knowledgeable, provided excellent coaching tips, and was able to tailor a trip exactly to what we wanted.
I would thoroughly recommend hiring Kenny as a seakayak guide.

We spent a couple of days with Kenny paddling around Seil. He really tailored the days and the level of activity to our requirements and did a really good job. The equipment was excellent. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Great first experience of sea kayaking in Scotland. Kenny's knowledge of the local area is impressive. His tuition on how to kayak was great also - we all felt confident in the water and were able to explore a good chunk of the magnificent Seil coastline. All the kit provided was top end stuff - carbon fiber paddles for example - and in great condition. For no charge, Kenny produced a film for us too whilst we were kayaking and had it uploaded to YouTube before we were even back in Oban! I'm the second person in my family to go sea kayaking with Kenny and have already recommended my sister his company.

“Sea Kayak Paddle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Many thanks to Kenny for a great day of paddling round Seil. Kenny has an encyclopaedic knowledge of everything to do with kayaking as well as the Isle of Seil. He is professional, thorough and always willing to impart his knowledge. Highly recommended for all levels of ability if you want to explore the beautiful west coast of Scotland by Kayak,
