New for 2020 Kayaking with Seals at Coquet Island
Join one of our experienced guides on this trip, out beyond the harbour to Coquet Island. Your guide will help with top tips on how to paddle and provide a commentary on what is happening on the Island and in the estuary.
Coquet Island is an RSPB Bird Sanctuary and Reserve and is home to hundreds of Puffins, Roseate Terns and has its own permanent Grey Seal Colony. The grey seals are very nosey playful and often coming up to our boats.
We will be on the water for about 2 hours, but please allow 3 hours to get in and out of the kit.
When do we offer Kayaking?
Our season runs from the Easter to late October, This trip is weather dependant.
Morning Sessions start at 10 am and afternoons at 1.30 pm. Please allow 3 hours. In the summer during July and August, we also run an evening trip.
We will supply the kayaks and a wetsuit as well as safety equipment. In warm weather, you may wish to wear your own clothes, shorts & T-Shirts are perfectly acceptable (just remember the sun cream and that you will get wet).
We suggest you bring footwear that you are happy to get wet, together with a drink and some snacks.
If you choose to use one of our a wetsuit you will need a swimsuit for underneath and a towel to dry off afterwards. You are welcome to use your own wetsuit if you prefer.
The minimum age for this activity is 16yrs old and under 18's must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
We need a minimum of 2 to run a session, if you are wanting to book only 1 person, please contact us so we can add you to a group that will run.
Our sea kayaking is very weather dependant and as such we have a high cancellation rate on this particular activity.
We only cancel it for safety reasons as a fall back we can go into the estuary and explore the harbour and estuary and if a change in conditions permits, we can explore the area immediately outside the harbour mouth.
If we are changing to an estuary tour, we will advise you accordingly and send a specific message this will include information on where to meet.
If you prefer not to partake in the estuary option, we are of course happy to re-arrange or refund.
This trip is weather dependent and prone to last-minute cancellation particularly early and late season when weather is against us. We only cancel this trip for safety reasons. You will be offered an alternative activity or a full refund.
