Overview

If you've already done some camping from a sea kayak, and are looking to stretch yourself that bit more, this trip is suitable for you. Experience some of the the UK's best sea kayaking on this self contained trip along the rugged, scenic coast of Anglesey. You'll experience tide races, visit remote islands and learn about the complexities of coastal navigation, sea safety and other expedition skills. Using a combination of day-long and overnight trips, you'll even learn how to organise your own trip and plan your route, so you can paddle coastal waters under your own steam using your new found skills.
