Our Sea Kayaking Skye trips will take you to some of the most amazing areas around the east side of the island. Skye has some of the most stunning coastlines in Europe and you have a wealth of wildlife to encounter. On a 2 day trip, it is quite possible to see animals like otters, porpoises and seals. The Isle of Skye is a large island and has always some sheltered areas where you can paddle, even in testing weather conditions. This makes Skye the ideal location for a short 2-day trip. In most cases, the tour would start in the sheltered area of Kyleakin.

Please contact us if you can’t find the right tour or dates.

Tour Details

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. It all depends on the weather and sea conditions. 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 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 by mid-afternoon.


On our 2-day sea kayaking journey, we will always go wild camping somewhere along the coast in or near the Isle of Skye.

We just returned from Scotland and one of the highlights was our 2 day sea kayaking trip with Andreas. We paddled in the mist, rain, and wind – all typical of Scotland weather- but had some some sun at the end. The meals were great and we even stayed in a bothy overnight. Andreas assisted in taking pictures, which he emailed to us. We wish to thank him again, for a memorable experience.

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.
