Sea Kayaking Skye

from £230.00

The 2 day sea kayaking Skye trip is our most popular sea kayaking journey we offer and has something for everyone. The tour will take you along the scenic coastline of Skye. On all sea kayaking tours you will be able to explore some of the most remote areas in the country. We also provide you with more and better quality kit than everyone else out there. The wildlife around the Isle of Skye is arguably the most astonishing in Europe. The island is fairly sheltered, as a result you may spot porpoises, dolphins, otters, sea eagles or even pine martens. Because of the sheltered locations you should also see an abundance of harbour seals in the area. Furthermore the Isle of Skye has some of the most beautiful coastlines and sea cliffs in Scotland.

Sea Kayaking Tour Skye

On the first day of the sea kayaking Skye trip you will paddle along some beautiful coastline. The starting point could be either at Kyleakin or at another location nearby. All depending on the weather and sea condition. By late afternoon the group should finally have reached a remote wild camping spot. The food we provide is mostly fresh, because we like to make sure that every aspect of the sea kayaking tour is enjoyable. With a good weather forecast we also offer a barbecue. Every morning we offer freshly made cappuccino or loose leaf tea. We can also make egg rolls or you can have a more simple breakfast, if you choose so. There is still plenty to see on the final day and the scenery might change on the way. The sea kayaking Skye trip should be finished my mid afternoon.

All about the Sea Kayaking Skye.

The 2 day sea kayaking trip in Isle of Skye is a multi day journey with wild camping for one night. This is ideal for people who have some or no experience. In these 2 days you will cover a section of the Skye coastline like Raasay, the Cuillin hills,  the Trotternish peninsular at the north of Skye and Waternish with it’s huge sea cliffs. There is always something to see, like remote sea Lochs, wildlife, sea cliffs and rugged mountains.

One of the most popular area for this trip would be Loch Scavaig and Loch Coruisk. This is a remote area at the south side of the Cuillins and would be usually only be reached by walking for hours or with a small passenger boat. Going there by sea kayak is certainly a more novel way to discover the area and you can land on more spots too.

Why Us?What we offer beyond the norm!
  • Friendly, experienced and professional sea kayaking instructor who knows are area like the back of his hand
  • Most other sea kayaking providers would provide plastic kayaks. Our sea kayaks are high quality fibreglass boats, which are designed for expedition use and have huge loading spaces.
  • All our paddles are high quality Werner or Lendal paddles with carbon fibre shafts.
  • We replace our tents every 2-3 years. Most other providers would run their tents into the ground
  • Our sleeping mats are mostly Therm-a-Rest NeoAir. You can’t beat a good night sleep.
  • We also offer sleeping bags and liners.
  • Food is all included so you don’t need to worry about organising that.
  • All food is fresh.

It’s not essential for this trip but it would help.

Yes, we would advise a good tent that stands up to wind and rain though. After all it’s Scotland.

A summer sleeping bag should be OK for July and August. You may need a 3 season bag for the rest of the season. Best to check the weather forecast before you go… if you can.

We went on a two day kayaking experience with Andreas off the Isle of Skye in September 2017. Including wild camping overnight. We would like to say a big thank you to Andreas for the kayaking experience - we both really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend.

Went out with Unexplored Scotland on a 2 day sea kayaking trip. Great route choice in the at the Ciullins. Andreas knows the area really well and has an eye to spot wild life on the water.

I was visiting UK from Australia and had booked Andreas at Highland Ascent for a 3 day sea kayaking trip around the southern edge of Skye. This was an awesome experience, much enhanced by the excellent sea kayak and camping equipment supplied, Andreas's professional guiding skills and in depth knowledge of the area. Highly recommended.
