About Dun Eideann Sea Kayaking
Dun Eideann Sea Kayaking is based near Edinburgh and thanks to the Firth of Forth’s unique geography and environment we are able to offer a varied selection of trips to suit all, taking in some amazing wildlife and history on our journeys. The company was born in 2012 along with George and Eve’s first child. Just like our children, the business thrived and grew without us noticing. 7 years on, we are proud to see it where it is today; boasting several partnerships with other local businesses; a full timetable of trips and a full fleet of boats including double sea kayaks to allow sea kayaking access to more people.
George has been working in the outdoors as an instructor and development tutor for the last 18 years, but playing in the outdoors for a lifetime. His love for the outdoors fuels his passion for allowing people to experience and learn about themselves, other people and the environment whilst enjoying the freedom of the outdoors.
He is a BCU level 3 coach and 5* in sea kayaking and a BCU level 3 coach in open canoeing and white water kayaking, giving him a broad depth of paddling experience and knowledge. George also holds mountaineering and climbing qualifications.
George has a young family and when not out on the water, spends most of his days closer to home where he enjoy spending time with his wife, daughter and sons on mini outdoor adventures.
Eve grew up in the outdoors, camping, climbing and kayaking from an early age and took this as a great basis for travelling around Europe for several years before training at an Outdoor Education Centre. Since then, her passion has been about supporting people of all ages, abilities and demographics to access the wilderness in order to support changes in their lives.
More recently, Eve left full time work to spend more time with George and the children. Eve is also working part time for Dun Eideann Sea Kayaking as the administrator and is hoping to qualify as a Forest School Leader in June 2019. There is not so much spare time after that, but any there is you will find her in the woods or at the beach with the children.
