Welcome to West Coast Kayaking
Sea kayaking offers the perfect way to explore the coasts of Wales and the Lake District. Paddling under rock arches, or within touching distance of seals and basking sharks, you can experience nature in ways few others do. Some of the coves and beaches we visit are inaccessible by any other means, and the quiet glide of a kayak maximises your chance of encountering elusive wildlife such as otters and porpoise.
Some guiding companies offer sea kayaking trips and courses for all levels of ability, from beginner to expert. Kayaking takes place around the coasts of North and West Wales, and the Furness Peninsula (southern Lake District).
Many courses usually operate with small numbers, and are tailored to your requirements. Whether you wish to enjoy wildlife at close quarters, explore remote coastline, or develop new kayaking skills, we provide the means to help you achieve this.
_All Kayaking companies can cater for all levels of ability!
Beginner- never sat in a kayak before, but would like to try the sport
Novice- have done one or two day or half-day trips, confident enough about exiting the kayak and wearing a spraydeck, seeking to improve your basic paddling skills and explore more by kayak.
Intermediate- have done several trips by kayak, have developed forward paddling skills, and are reasonably confident at controlling you boat. You have had at least some experience of more challenging conditions (windy/tidal/rough water) and would like to try more of this. Perhaps also happy to try some longer trips.
Advanced- experience of handling a boat in rough conditions, confident in a sea kayak. Able to undertake a day trip that involves 4-5 hours paddling. Rolling- if (like most seakayakers) you do not have a “bomb-proof” roll, this does not exclude you! We recognise that many good kayakers aren’t 100% confident when it comes to rolling.
