Translatable All about the Skye Discovery.

TripAdvisorThe Discover Skye trip is a multi day trip at the Isle of Skye. Since the Isle of Skye is a large island you can always find some sheltered area even if the weather is  kicking up some waves somewhere else. There are many beautiful areas around the island like Raasay, the Cuillins, the Trotternish peninsular at the north of Skye  and Waternish with it's huge sea cliffs.

This 5 day sea kayaking trip  is for people who have already some or little experience in kayaking, since you will spend 5 days in a kayak. This will be a trip you will never forget. Alternatively you can consider the 2 Day Sea Kayaking Trip in Skye.

The Isle of Skye is well known for its rugged coast and scenic views. It certainly is a popular place for hillwalkers and sea kayakers alike. The weather can sometimes be a wee bit of a challenge. However, it is a big island and there is always some place where you can hide from the strong westerlies.

  1. Day1 The Journey Begins

    Meet up in Skye, load the kayaks and start paddling. This day will be just an easy paddle to get to know each other and to get used to the water. In late afternoon we set up a camp and get cooking.

  2. Day 2-4 The Journey

    These days are according to weather conditions and the speed we can paddle in a group. We can stop any place we like for a wild camp and if the conditions allow a camp fire.

  3. Day 5 Getting Back

    Make that a shorter day to wind down and get back to the cars.

On our 5 day sea kayaking journey we will always go wild camping somewhere along the coast in or near the Isle of Skye. On request we may try to aim for a camping site at one day.

It is very much recommended to have previous kayaking experience since we may cover up to 30km per day for the majority of the trip.

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.

This trip went ahead despite me being the only customer. The sea was calm and the wind was light helping us to make excellent progress on our journey from Elgol to Kyleakin. So much so that we arrived a day earlier than planned and carried on to Plockton for our final night. Excellent scenery and superb views of wildlife including close encounters with otter and basking shark made this an unforgettable trip. Thanks Andreas!
