Sea Kayaking allows you to move silently through nature experiencing the wildlife close up and undisturbed while exploring the hidden coves, cut-off beaches, remote inlets and caves you can only discover from the water.

We aim to view nature in its natural habitat without disturbing, displacing or damaging it and even more importantly our aim is to leave the beaches, coves and other marine environments we visit in a better condition than when we arrived. 

Sea Kayaking is not only a wonderful way to discover the hidden beauty of the coastline and estuaries of South Devon but also a great way to take part in a fun, memorable outdoor activity with a small group of like minded people. If you would like to find out about costs and availability please visit our Sea kayaking website www.seakayakingholidays.co.uk

Lunch stopWhat we’ll do:

Each morning we will meet, discuss the options for the day based on the group, the weather and the tides. We will choose one of the many locations along the coastline or river estuaries of South Devon, kit you up, load up the Sea kayaks, have a safety briefing and head to the water.

Torbay is an ideal place to start with its sheltered waters, beaches and rocky coves. The coastline is a UNESCO Global Geopark and home to the sea grass beds which are the breeding grounds of our native species of seahorse.

If you are interested in wildlife the Dart Estuary between Totnes and Dartmouth is the place. Seals, Cormorants, Little Egrets, Kingfishers, Herons and a wide variety of seabirds are often seen as we paddle or drift along with the tide in amongst the reed beds and remote side creeks.

Dartmouth Sea KayakingAs you gain confidence, the South Hams coastline is amazing for Sea kayaking it is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has a rugged coastline, sea caves, headlands and exposed cliffs for the more adventurous.

To minimise the impact we have on the beaches, coves and estuaries we visit the maximum number of participants will be 6 people. The Sea Kayaking Holidays are available for anyone over the age of 16 who can confidently swim 50m and has a reasonable level of fitness. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
