 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 24 singles and 8 doubles.


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

Single Kayaks:

 

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.
