Kayak Wild Islay

Contact details

Come to the inner Hebridean island of Islay for a sea kayaking adventure. Explore this beautiful part of Argyll by kayak. The silent mobility of sea kayaks enables you to explore a world of remote islands, skerries and stunning beaches and discover hidden lagoons and bays. Kayak Wild Islay specialises in providing quality trips around the coastline of Islay. Kayak Wild Islay is based in Port Ellen, close to the local amenities and some of the main accommodation providers. They are, however, happy to travel to be nearer to your accommodation, and even to Jura if required. Kayak Wild Islay offers a range of guided trips and taster sessions for all the family, individually tailored to suit you. A half day is best suited for those wishing to try Sea Kayaking for the very first time. You'll be kitted out and introduced to the basics of boat handling to allow you to explore the bay and its surrounding skerries. On a full day’s excursion you may spend four or five hours in the kayaks and cover between seven and ten miles, with plenty of opportunities to land and explore islands on foot. The aim of the trip is not endurance, but an opportunity to discover beautiful places using the ideal transport.  Along the way your guide will introduce you to the areas of abundant wildlife. You may spot seals, herons, arctic terns, black guillemots and even the elusive otter in its natural environment.
