Enough about that here is a bit of a tour low down:
Anyone that has been sea kayaking before understands the need to be flexible due to the changing nature of the sea. Trip itineraries should be seen as an outline of the trip. The enjoyment and safety of the group is always our main consideration, therefore the guides may choose to alter the itinerary slightly to suit the weather conditions, or particular trip dynamics.
Our guides are professionals who deal with the ocean’s dynamic weather conditions on a daily bases so please trust that they will make the wisest and safest decision to ensure the safety of the group and an enjoyable trip.
On all our adventures we like to make a relatively early start on the water to take advantage of the cooler part of the day and lighter winds. We therefore plan to do most of our paddling in the mornings arriving at our overnight camp around lunch time or mid afternoon. This leaves the afternoons free to explore or relax. As with any expedition trip sea kayaking journeys rely on teamwork, participating as a group and working together. The more you put in the more you get out, so for a rewarding active holiday your assistance in certain camp activities will be appreciated and you will have certain responsibilities, such as, unpacking your own kayak and setting up your tent on arrival at our beach camps.
