We spent a very sunny afternoon on the Loch with Ben from Rock Hopper this week.
I phoned up in the morning and my girlfriend and I booked a half days Kayaking.
Ben was very friendly, knowledgeable and full of entertaining stories.
I had never been in a Kayak before but Ben made us both feel relaxed and safe, showing us how to paddle and steer and pointing out local wildlife as we went along.
The views of Ben Nevis from the Loch were stunning and Ben obliged us by taking a great photo from the water.
All in all a great way to spend an afternoon!!!
Thanks again,

Stephen and Ana

Having never been kayaking before and not sure what to expect, I had the most wonderful time with Rockhopper Sea Kayaking. It was a beautiful sunny day and the water was amazing. Our instructor, Ben, sorted us out with our kayaks & kit and we set off from Arisaig for a morning session. It was perfect. Ben gave us great instruction whenever we needed it, and took us around the islands where we stopped to take in the incredible views, clear blue water and white sands - a lovely photo opportunity. For wildlife fans we were also able to see plenty of seals, who came to say hello every now and again. Needless to say the morning passed far too quickly and we wished we could've stayed longer - we had such fun, and will definitely be back.

We did the half day seakayaking trip with Rockhopper in Sound of Arisaig. It was a beautiful day with clear skies and very little wind. It was our first time seakayaking, our instructor, Ben, was great in showing how to steer and how to paddle. It really felt like we were in the Maldives with turquoise clear water all along. We made a stop at a very small isle with white sand. And we had seals keeping us company the whole time. It was an amazing experience seeing them so close. We were in a two people kayak and he helped us a few times along the way as the kayak came onto a rock and when we didn't want to get our feet wet when getting back into the kayak after a small break.
We will be back for the two night trip I am sure!

We had a 1/2 day paddle around Aridaig with Tom and the Stuarts. The team were well resourced and organised, providing us with good quality equipment. The boats were comfy, the waterproof clothing and spray decks fitted well...even had left handed paddles for me!
They were friendly and knowledgeable, gave quick and simple paddling instructions not wasting time we could be on the water.
We experienced a beautiful spot, crystal clear waters, lots of seals (a highlight).
The booking was straight forward and flexible too in case of bad weather.
I would recommend this company 100%
Thank you.

We booked for an overnight sea kayaking trip with rockhopper whilst on a holiday in and around Arisaig. I cannot rave about this company enough. Our guides Stuart and Tristan were brilliant from start to finish. The booking was simple and they were flexible to accommodate the dates we had in mind for the trip.
The communication before the trip was brilliant. Stuart made sure we were kept up to date with all the plans and rang to confirm the meeting point the day before. The trip itself was fantastic from start to finish.Stuart and Tristan were great fun and knowledgeable, ensuring we were all safe but allowing us time to explore the amazing coastline. We were well fed with plenty of snacks and the evening meal was brilliant. i have sea kayaked in Sweden but i have to say the sea around Arisaig is like no where else on earth! Beautiful white sandy beaches, crystal clear sea and hundreds of seals awaited. We were blessed with the weather and swam in the bluest sea you can imagine. We were also lucky enough to see phosphorescent algae which was one of the most impressive things i have ever seen and made even more special by the fact that even Stuart and Tristan said they had never seen it so bright!

I spent the night sleeping under the millions of stars which lit up the night....but tents are provided for the more sane customers.

Thank you both for giving our group a trip which we will remember for ever.
