 Our Kayaking Equipment

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 highest standard. 

All our kayaks 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 35 singles and 8 doubles.


Our specially designed sea kayak trailer holds up to 12 kayaks,
with storage boxes for paddles and accessories. 

Lightweight Paddles are essential for your paddling enjoyment  
We use Werner fiber-glass and carbon-fiber paddles.  Strong, lightweight, balanced, stylish, durable and efficient. They deliver everything we look for in a paddle and more.  Little dipper, Shuna and Corryvreckan blade types, variable feather from 90 degrees left to 90 degrees right, 210-220 cm in length. We also have an assortment of Greenland-style paddles for those who prefer, or want to try, this style of paddling.
Single Kayaks:

 

The bulk of the fleet are Lasers, by the Rainbow Company, Italy. We currently have 16 lasers, 6 are fitted with rudders. We have found the laser to provide the best comfort and overall performance for medium and large 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.
