We have been so pleased with all the positive feedback on our website. A huge thanks to all of you who have made suggestions, and supported us through this process of getting the new website up and running by being so patient!

The added bonus is that now our on-line booking system is live too.  You can view all the courses and trips that we have available for the season (which we will also add to as we go - so keep your eyes peeled!).  Now you will find all course/trip specific details within this and book on-line too.  A easy and quick booking process for you. The only difficult thing will be deciding what you'd like to do!

The start of a busy season!

We have been getting busier and the season is shaping up nicely.  Despite the stronger than average winds for this time of year, we have already been out guiding a few expeditions.  Carol is currently over on the Isle of Mull and Tony is paddling from the base in Connel, near Oban.  We still have availability for the summer and autumn though, so get in touch with us if you would like to try sea kayaking as a beginner, develop your sea kayaking skills or join one of our lodge based trips - perhaps Orkney???

3* Training & Assessment

Our first 3* Training and Assessment dates for the summer of 2015 are now set.  The Training course is on the 13th and 14th July and the Assessment date is the 15th July.  For further details get in touch with Carol here.

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?).”
