We provide quality sea kayaks,
paddles and accessories for all our day and multi day trips.
All equipment is selected for its
performance and safety features and maintained to the
are directionally stable, closed cock-pit ("sit in") kayaks,
designed for oceanic conditions. They have sealed bulkheads,
waterproof hatch covers and adjustable footrests.
Some are fitted with rudders, for
those who prefer to use them.
Our current fleet comprises
24 singles and
Our specially designed sea
kayak trailer holds up to 12 kayaks,
with storage boxes for paddles and accessories.
The bulk of the fleet
are Lasers, by
the Rainbow Company, Italy. We currently have 18 lasers,
6 are fitted
with rudders. We have found the laser to provide the best
comfort and overall performance for most paddlers;
The laser is 512cm long by 57cm wide and weighs 28kg.
We also have a variety of other
single kayaks (one or 2 of each; click on photo to enlarge):
Doubles ( Tandems)
Doubles are popular with those who prefer
companionship and teamwork, rather than the solitude and
independence of a single. They are also useful for
matching up paddlers of different strengths and are a great
advantage on windy days, as they offer increased stability
and efficiency. We use exclusively the Rainbow
Atlantis. Most are fitted
with foot rudders which are controlled by the rear seated paddler.
