Sea kayaking

Sea kayaking is an unbeatable way to explore the glorious coastline of Argyll and the Isles and discover its secrets. With secluded beaches, turquoise water, white sands, sheltered sea lochs, dramatic cliffs and deserted islands, this Scottish coastal area is a paddler’s paradise.

The sea around Oban and Lorn offer fantastic kayaking for all levels and there is a number of operators in this area that can help get you started. Another good place for beginners is the sheltered waters of the Kyles of Bute. Or how about paddling down the historic Crinan Canal – Scotland’s most scenic waterway? For the experienced paddler, the options are endless. Go on an island adventure around the Slate Islands of Seil, Easdale and Insh, circumnavigate beautiful Gigha or wild and lonely Jura, paddle rings around Bute or explore the coves, beaches and pretty seaside villages of Argyll’s Secret Coast.

If you want to book yourself into a week-long course or simply get out there for the day with an expert guide, Argyll and the Isles has a number of well-established companies who will be delighted to help.
