Summer has arrived!!

01 Jul 19

So the feedback regarding our website has been fantastic.  Again many thanks to Rotten Core for our logo and Big Toe Web design for the site.  We think it is awesome. Our next step is get our logo on some hoodies and t-shirts to dec out the family.

With the summer finally here, we are paddling most days.  We have already seen dolphins, puffins, seals, kittiwakes, guilimots, cormorants - to name a few. We've been to Silversands, Inchcolm, Braehead Point and St. Davids Harbour; Lamb, Fidra, Craigleith and St. Abbs Head. Check out our instagram and facebook page for photos of the season. 

We have successfully ran a full skills course in partnership with Port Edgar Watersports and looking forward to the second set of evenings to deliver more streamlined skills sessions.  We also have a two day weekend course in Ocrober and for those wanting to get certificated, we are offering training courses throughout the season with an assessment for the new Paddle Performance Award in Sea Kayaking set for September.

What our clients say...

"This was truly one of the most unique, satisfying, and enjoyable experiences of our entire UK trip! George is a master kayak guide, whose knowledge of the Scottish coast terrain, flora, and fauna will teach and entertain you on your kayaking adventure! George was very careful to assess our level of comfort, and fully let us dictate the desired strenuousness of our kayaking trip. We visited two rocky islands off the coast and got to see loads of birds and seals! I couldn't recommend this enough to anyone who enjoys, or is curious to experience, kayaking. George is the perfect guide to introduce you to the Scottish coastal experience!"

"We had an amazing experience kayaking in the sea by North Berwick. George is a brilliant teacher and we felt safe all the time. My two teenagers were so happy and inspired after the trip. We saw plenty of sea birds, including puffins. We also saw seals sunning themselves on the rocks of the islands that we paddled around. I would definitely recommend this experience! Make sure to bring sun protection , although George had thought of that too and let us use his :)"

"George was taking our group for a course assessment. Always friendly and relaxed yet totally professional, (....this guy really knows his stuff! ) He turned a fairly challenging day into a great day on the water....I learned a lot."
