If you want to further develop your kayaking skills the sheltered waters around Cowal and the Isle of Bute are ideal. The Firth of Clyde to the south and west of Bute provide opportunities for more challenging conditions.

British Canoe Union 1 and 2 Star Awards plus 3 Star Sea Kayak are offered. We also provide sea kayak safety and rescue training which can be tailored to a particular emphasis, for example group safety or with a focus on two persons who paddle as a partnership. We can also offer coaching and assessment based on International Sea Kayak Guide’s Association modules.

We are proud to offer courses where the coach team specifically includes a gender balance and can be offered on a women’s only participant basis.

A day costs £85 per person including hire of kayak, buoyancy aid, spray deck and paddle. This is discounted to £75 per day for group or multi day bookings and a further discount to £65 per day for those using their own kit. Individual 1 to 1 coaching/guiding costs £175 per day.

Contact us to book and discuss dates.

Our location is well served by rail, road and air transport links to the nearby cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh.
