Sea Kayaking

Explore the stunning and varied coastline of Anglesey and North Wales by sea kayak. We have sit on tops , general purpose kayaks and sea kayaks that can be used on the coastal venues.

Beaches and Sheltered Bays

The sea kayak is ideal to enjoy the beautiful beaches. There are many sheltered coastal areas where the group can enjoy kayaking and learn new skills. Popular areas on Anglesey include Trearddur Bay and Rhoscolyn. These are enclosed areas so beginner groups can play and learn within a safe and controlled environment. There is plenty of interest within these areas with rocks, mini cliffs and new beaches to find.

We split the day between teaching the group new kayaking strokes so that they can easily control and manoeuvre the boats and playing games. There are plenty of kayak games that can be played which can either be dry or involve swimming and jumping.

Sea Cliffs, Caves and Islands

For more advanced groups we can move out of the bays to discover the bigger cliffs that are around Anglesey. There are dramatic coastlines that are world renowned and that will make an instant impression. High cliffs and deep caves are always fun to explore as a group. Often there are friendly seals that come and say hello, especially if we kayak over to the islands such as Puffin Island. Sea birds are also abundant with quiet locations available, allowing you to experience them in their natural environment.

Sea Kayak Journeys

We have specialist kayaks that can be used for longer day or even multi-day journeys. Hatches at the front and back can store plenty of kit, including tents and stoves if you are staying out overnight. Anglesey offers journeying and wild camps around all of its coastline and provides a unique and memorable activity. For those looking for alternative DofE expeditions, sea kayaking gives an exciting alternative.

The sea kayaking activity can be a half day activity but works best as a full day, enabling skills to be taught and a journey undertaken.
