The season so far!

We have been quite busy to date with lots of fun sea kayak trips and coaching courses running from our sea kayak base near Oban.

In addition to this we have also had some great sea kayak trips all over Scotland, and although the weather has been a bit chillier than previous summers, and sun has shone a little less, this hasn't stopped us all getting out there and having a great time!  Our self catering trips to Orkney and Mull were amazing and spent in the company of fantastic sea cliffs, lots of puffins, guillemots, razorbills, a few otters and lots of seals, and not to mention the sea eagles! We've had an exciting week of paddling on the North Coast of Scotland, around Handa and Whitten Head too as well as a wee expedition out to the Small Isles (Rum, Eigg, Canna and Muck).  Other trips have included an expedition to Skye, and an expedition exploring part of the Argyll sea kayak trail.  

We are now excited to return to the Isle of Mull by sea kayak once again in September, and to Orkney in 2016.  But meanwhile we have lots going on and lots available for bespoke courses too so feel free to get in touch!

What customers say...

“When we started paddling we met quite a few instructors but wasn't until we found Sea Freedom Kayak that we felt were getting the advice and instruction that we needed...”

Frank and Jules Price

“Thanks .... for a brilliant day paddling around Kerrera, off the coast of Oban..... The Sun shone all day and the sea was very calm, which was ideal for our first sea kayaking experience. We will definitely be back!”

Paul Menzies

“Great location, great coaching, great fun. I could go on!”

Victoria Maxwell-MacDonald

“5*'s - Been sea kayaking with other people, these guys are the best!”

Calum MacLean

I started sea kayaking with seafreedom. Really good coaching, fantastic location, and if you are lucky amazing wildlife. After three days coaching I had seen 3 otters, 2 sea eagles and countless seals (or was it the same one stalking us?).”
