National Kayak


Advanced / Tidal Sea Kayaking - 2-day

Using the fantastic range of tidal locations right on our doorstep, this course allows paddlers to push their skills in challenging waters. Paddlers should be comfortable in waves of up to 1m, including experience of launching & landing in surf. Numbers for this course are capped at 4.

The waters around Oban include strong tides and exposed coastlines. This course will look at how to plan journeys in these areas, and how to handle strong tidal flows. Depending on the weather, we will head to classic destinations such as the Grey Dogs, Cuan Sound or the Falls of Lora, making full use of the tides to help us on our way. The course will cover the skills needed to paddle in tidal waters, strong winds, and challenging waves, including the safety considerations of heading there as part of a group.

All equipment and clothing is provided, but you will need a packed lunch.
The course starts at 09.30 and finishes around 16.30 on both days.

You will initially meet at our base in central Oban, there will be a short drive on both days to enable us to find the most appropriate sea conditions.
