Living from a sea kayak allows you to explorer further and for longer, allowing you to access remote islands, beaches and coves only sea kayaks can reach. But there are many secrets to doing this in comfort. During this course we'll go on a mini two day expedition along the spectacular North Wales coastline to help you find the secret to effective living from a sea kayak. After this you'll be all set for exploring alone.
