Your kayaking sessions will be led by our fully qualified and friendly guides who know the Pembrokeshire coastline like the back of their hands.
We offer our sea kayaking courses and weekends on allocated weekend and mid week dates (see below). This tried and tested introductory sea kayaking weekend will suit beginner kayakers new to the sport, or those with a little experience of pootling on rivers, lakes or quiet ocean waters. Please do call us on 01348 837709 or contact us if you have any questions about our range of sea kayaking courses.
This course will suit  improver kayakers who have attended an At Sea with the Seals beginners weekend, or who have had similar relevant kayaking experience.
Pembrokeshire may not have any Munros, but it’s rumoured there are 100 or more islands for you to bag. The Sea Kayak Odyssey is a mid week exploration of the coastline, taking in the most inspirational sections of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. If you have a group of 6 or more, we can run a sea kayaking event on almost any weekend or mid week date that suits you. The At Sea with the Seals sea kayaking course will suit a beginner paddler, or if you have a little experience of kayaking on lakes, rivers and calm seas then this is the event for you. The Rock and Roll sea kayaking course caters for the paddler with a little more experience, if you have your BCU 1*, or if you’ve taken part in a Preseli Venture At Sea with the Seals weekend and consider yourself  more of an improver paddler then this event will suit you. The Island Bagger sea kayaking course caters for the competant paddler with more experience, so if you have your BCU 2*, or if you’ve taken part in a Preseli Venture Rock and Roll weekend and consider yourself  more of an intermediate paddler then this event will suit you.
Please do call us on 01348 837709 or contact us if you have any questions about our range of sea kayaking courses. Everything is relative, but this weekend will feel pretty warm for Sea Kayaking In Scotland in December. Sea Kayaking Edinburgh or Sea Kayaking Inverness or Sea Kayaking Glasgow or Sea Kayaking Aberdeen. If you think its hard having the kids home for the holidays, this is a floating village, including school. We will also post lots about Watersports, Boating and other Adventure Activities in Oban in other areas of the Blog. The BBC website can show the cloud moving across which is really useful, but the general 5 day for Oban is just too general to be meaningful . I have yet to understand why the Metcheck forecast for our white water kayaking base in Aberfeldy is always 5-10 degrees too cold.
So its forecast to be High pressure for the next week or so and then moving towards a northerly damp airstream ie snow. Its a Very Old refurbished building using as much recycled components as we could realistically manage to produce a modern business. Often on our trips we spend some time collecting rubbish and at certain times we will give free Sea Kayak Rental to anyone who fills the bag with shoreline rubbish.
Well we had a superb day out on the water yesterday demoing boats that we hope to be selling at Sea Kayaking Oban. The all orange and all red kayaks are the Orca 14 (bulkhead and rear hatch but only pillar bouyancy in the front) and the all white sea kayak is the Explorer for sale. NB National Kayak School also runs Sea Kayaking Courses in Edinburgh , Aberdeen , Inverness and elsewhere. Please enjoy our regularly updated photos and images of Wedding Cakes, Christening Cakes, Birthday Cakes, Celebration Cakes, Special Occassion Cakes made to order and delivery arranged if required . Designed as a responsive, light-weight boat suitable for day trips in rough water it is equally at home poking into sheltered estuaries or exploring the shore of isolated coves.

This boat is derived from my Night Heron designs, but it is shorter, has more rocker and more reserve buoyancy in the ends. The "transitioning" chine varies from a quite rounded, soft chine forward to a hard chine aft of the cockpit. The deck shape takes its queue from Greenlandic Inuit skin-on-frame designs with a sharp chine-like feature line on either side. This design was developed to carry a 200 lbs, 6+ foot paddler on day trips, but it is small scale enough that it would also work well for substantially smaller paddlers.It is meant as a day tripping boat for larger paddlers, and would not have the capacity for extended trips, but if you are a smaller paddler there is enough interior volume to carry a fair amount of gear.
For an entry level marketed kayak this boat nails the price point with a nice solid hull design that boasts ample storage.
The hull design offers a good deal of stability and if you have decent balance it’s possible to stand in. The rudder cable material Vibe uses is a bit spongy and lacks the fast response I desire but if you tinker with them a bit it can be made suitable. Incorporated gear tracks would be a great addition to the design but that isn’t a deal breaker for me. The cam lock hatch behind the seat isn’t super useful to me other than rigging access.
Overall I would recommend this boat to anyone on a sub $1000 budget or just getting into the sport.
Despite the popularity of its environs, this company puts your chances of seeing whales and other marine mammals at 99 percent. I went with Sea Kayaking Adventur…In February 2009 while most of the US was freezing, we were enjoying a sea kayak adventure complete …My husand and I have never kayaked and just returned from the best vacation we ever took! From floating in a tranquil bay surrounded by sea birds, through to the exhilaration of surfing a sea kayak through roaring tidal races our sea kayaking packages offer a structured approach to both the sport and the exploration of the National Park. You’ll stay at the lovely Preseli Venture 5 star eco lodge perfectly located with quick and easy access to the best wild and out of the way locations on the fabulous north Pembrokeshire coastline.
You’ll get the chance to explore some of the most beautiful sheltered bays, coastline and harbours of Pembrokeshire and there will be mysterious and awe inspiring caves to be explored and wildlife to be spotted. On this weekend you’ll be training to become a competent member of a group able to travel safely and efficiently on the sea. When you can reliably handle yourself and your kayak in rough water and tide races, can kayak for more than an hour without your paddle turning to lead, and enjoy the occasional ducking, this is the event for you!
A perfect blend of learning to sea kayak or imporving your sea kayaking knowledge whilst enjoying the abundant wildlife along the coast up close and natural. Let us take away the hassle factor by coordinating your entire booking, please see group activity weekends for details of how we can help and the group discounts that are available.
All the rivers are up and if you have a shuttle bunny the Rannoch Moor crossing would be great. Often it looks like its not going to be a good day in the general synopsis and then the wet weather moves through quicker than expected and at least part of the day ends up superb. Started off super cold but the wind dropped and the sun prevailed and it was yet another glorious day. Named after Saint Peter, petrels are small birds that feed at sea by fluttering just above the swell with their feet tip-toeing across the water. This design will carry a large paddler through rough conditions yet it is small enough to be easily handled by petite kayakers. The moderately hard chine of the strip Night Heron has been softened forward of the cockpit and transitions into a hard chine behind the cockpit.
The forward section provides smooth performance pushing out into waves and reduces the tendency to broach while surfing.
It’s a very riggable platform that gives everyone from the entry level angler to the most seasoned one the option to build the boat they desire. It was able to eddy out quickly and efficiently in moving water and the tracking was very nice. I would practice without any gear in the boat first as people are sized differently and with varying balance.

Credit for its success goes to a high guide-to-guest ratio (1:4) and an emphasis on environmental education rather than just sightseeing. The British Canoe Union (BCU) performance awards, which are the 1, 2, and 3 star tests, can be taken, or worked towards, as part of this personal ability progression.
All your food for the events is provided, meals are home cooked, wholesome and delicious, and special diets are happily catered for.
If you have a group of 6 or more we can offer these sea kayaking courses on dates of your choice, including midweek. On a skills level you will develop an efficient forward paddling stroke, you’ll master turning your kayak, get involved in some basic trip planning, and gain confidence to take your skills and experience to the next level. Moving water and swells will become your friends as you encounter tidal streams, play at rock hopping and ride clean green waves.
You will enjoy a mid-week stay at our lovely 5 star eco lodge accommodation right on the coast, your home from home and with easy access to the best bits of the Park and National Trust venues. We are also happy to tailor make an event to suit your individual needs, interests and pockets, just let us know what lights your fire and we’ll put together a personalised adventure programme – just for you. Like its bird namesake the Petrel kayak is at home at sea where it can dance among the waves. With a form inspired by the Inuit inventors of kayaking, the Petrel will appeal to devoted Greenland-style paddlers without being intimidating to novice sea kayakers. The result is a lively boat that accelerates quickly to catch waves, carves down wave faces and maneuvers easily.
The side of the deck slopes in quickly so it is out of the way for close-to-the-hull strokes. And in British Columbia, it ventures into the province's newest park, God's Pocket Marine Provincial Park, for lodge-based paddling adventures.
The 3 star intermediate paddler Performance award and the 4 star Leadership award are both also provided by Preseli Venture so please enquire for dates for the 3 and 4 star training and assessment courses in 2016.
You’ll take extended trips along the coastline, and visit some of Pembrokeshire’s best kept secret spots!
You’ll encounter creaming surf, whirlpools and exhilarating waves and perhaps be joined by seals and dolphins.
The BCU 1 star test can be taken during this holiday and you can also work towards the BCU 2 star test. Remember if you are not sure if you are up to a route then talk to others about it or just hire one of the local guides.
You’ll acquire support strokes, try eskimo rolling (if you choose), and learn to tow a friend out of trouble.
The sea trips you enjoy during this course will count towards the experience required for your BCU 3 star performance award. There are loads of loos and showers, so you didn't have to wait after getting back drenched and happy!Our Guides John and Sam where incredible, especially considering that we had some pretty choppy conditions on the first day and that the group had mixed experience levels.
This forecast gives a good idea of the temperature of the air mass thats going to affect us, which for 9 days time is more realistic than most other projections.
Also on the coldswell site are links to various surf forecasts or at least swell forecasts. These can be fairly accurate for a few days hence as the waves may already have been generated somewhere off in the blue yonder and are already heading our way. There are others that some people love, but this may be because they are the most optimistic.
