West Coast Sea-Kayaking

Crystal clear waters, abundant wildlife, deserted islands and pristine beaches; the West Coast of Scotland is widely recognised as a world-class destination for sea kayaking.


During the week students will be taught basic sea kayaking skills and safety procedures before embarking on a multi-day expedition on the West coast of Scotland (weather permitting). The expedition will allow the group to visit wild and remote areas that are inaccessible by any other means.

The week is led by experienced sea kayak educators who are not only paddle experts, but also very knowledgeable in the natural and cultural history of the West coast. During the week, students will have a chance to learn new skills plus also practice and reflect on the academic course modules.
