Sea Kayaking Oban & Scotland

Enjoy an amazing sea kayak experience with an open course in a small group of similarly skilled paddlers or design your own private, custom course in any part of Scotland! Whether you are completely new to sea kayaking, have dabbled a little bit or are a seasoned paddler we have lots of sea kayak courses, sea kayak expeditions and lodge based trips to suit you.

Looking ahead to Autumn & Winter 2015:

We are coming to the end of our Summer season now, but we have lots planned to get you excited for Autumn and Winter, including more of our fantastic rolling workshops, surf sessions, photography courses and sea kayak skills and journey courses!

3* Training/refresher day and assessment - 28th to 30th sept 2015. This official 3* training takes place over 2 days (28th and 29th september) and the 3* assessment (30th sept) is one day long.  If you have already done your training and would just like a refresher day before your assessment then this combination can be done on the 29th and 30th september.  This course will be run on the east coast, so please get in touch for more details.

Sea Kayak skills and Journey course 1st to 2nd Oct 2015 - These 2 days are designed to develop your sea kayak skills and knowledge of sea conditions, increasing confidence to apply them as you are 'on the move'.  If you are aspiring towards independant paddling this 2 day course is ideal.   Other dates are available.

Sea Kayak and photography course 4th to 5th Oct 2015 - This course is an ideal way to discover lots of tricks of the trade for capturing the perfect shot and holding on to those great sea kayaking memories.  More information can be found here

Rolling - our autumn rolling classes get under way soon, with the first one scheduled for the 17th and 18th October and second one for the 28th and 29th November. Spaces on these courses are limited, so as with all our courses a deposit is required to hold your place. If the courses are full we can schedule more so please just ask!

Surfing - We have 2 surf courses scheduled for this autumn/winter (don't worry, we provide drysuits for extra warmth and snugness!). These courses will be held on the Scottish east coast and are 3 days long.  Dates are 30th oct- 1st November and the 20th - 22nd November.  

2016 dates coming soon!

We are currently planning our 2016 calendar so watch out for new dates.  If you would like us to organise Lodge based trips or expeditions to locations that are not soon to be listed please get in touch and just ask.  We are lucky to be based mobile so can go anywhere!  Likewise if any of the dates to planned locations do not suit you, just let is know and we can arrange alternaitves for you and a group of friends.

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?).”
