Sunday, July 3, 2011, 02:44 PMThe Inner Hebrides guided sea kayaking trips have proved very popular again this year so we have added more dates.
This course/holiday blends the 5 day Sea Kayaking Intro Course with the Inner Hebrides Improver 5 day "holiday".
It is aimed at those who have done just a very small amount or sea kayaking or some river kayaking and would like to progress or just have a great holiday.
This means we cover the syllabus of the 5 day course but spend Wednesday and Thursday nights out camping so that you learn the skills associated with paddling a loaded sea kayak & camping from one. We meet at 9.30am on the first day and are finished by 4.30pm on the last day.
It means if the weather is obliging you may get to visit more remote locations.
Usually participants provide their own camping gear but we can provide stoves and tents especially for those who travel by public transport.
Contrary to popular belief the midges on the coast are not a problem most of the time. They only emerge in June and then whenever there is at least slight breeze they disappear. So perhaps one evening in seven are they a nuisance in July & August.

Monday, March 7, 2011, 11:00 AMNational kayak school is now offering free use of drysuits on all their early season beginner kayaking courses in scotland. So far this has provided smiles all round as a dunking is no longer a problem.
Sea Kayak Oban our huge sea kayak shop has a large range of drysuits to fit all pockets.
The free drysuits also makes life good for the instructors as they are able to push the clients just a bit more so that they learn even more.
We also use the drysuits on our safety courses and white water courses making us the best equipped kayaking operator in Scotland
