Kayak Islay

Enjoy Islay from the Water

Join us for a sea kayaking trip along the coast of Islay exploring the delights along the way.

Try Kayaking where you will have the opportunity to discover beautiful places and view wildlife using the ideal transport.

Along the way your guide will introduce you to the areas of abundant wildlife, you may spot seals, herons, arctic terns, black guillemots and even the elusive otter in its natural environment. Whilst otter sightings can’t be guaranteed, we do see them regularly from the kayaks. The silent mobility of sea kayaks enables us to explore a world of remote islands, skerries and stunning beaches and discover hidden lagoons and bays.

Half day Kayak Tours exploring the coastline of Islay. Approximately 3 hours including a stop for a hot drink and a bit of the famous flapjack along the way. We can also arrange full day tours If you’re a more experienced kayaker. This option gives us the possibility to explore Texa or further along the coast past Ardbeg.
