“Fantastic tailor made sea kayaking adventure”
Review of Sea Kayak Scotland

Sea Kayak Scotland
Ranked #1 of 18 Outdoor Activities in Oban
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Having done an introductory course in sea kayaking previously we contacted Sea Kayaking Scotland to arrange a day where we could put our skills into practise. Kenny spent time with us discussing our skills, needs and proposed several options, resulting in a fantastic day kayaking around some of the most stunning scenery of the West coast of Scotland. Kenny recapped on critical safety information and basic paddling technique and provided additional coaching to help advance our skills further. The kayaks and safety kit were of very good quality and the day was well tailored to our requirements and capabilities. Great day out and we will certainly be visiting again in the future.

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.

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.

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.
