Join a sea kayaking holiday and see Scotland’s rugged coastline from a new perspective.
We offer both accommodation based and expedition style kayaking trips and provide all the specialist kayaking equipment. You’ll enjoy paddling under the expert leadership of our guides, who read the water and ensure you’re getting the most from your sea kayaking holiday. Scotland has 10% of Europe’s coastline, so there is a lot to explore.
If you have only sea kayaked a few times (or never before) then the place to start is with either our Introduction Course or Scottish Highlands trips – beginner friendly paddling in beautiful locations.
For paddlers with at least 5 days previous experience, we off a range of either accommodation based or expedition style trips exploring the most beautiful waters of Scotland’s west coast, from day paddles on wild sea lochs to expeditions to remote uninhabited islands. For accommodation based trips, look for our “Scottish Sea Kayak Trail” trips. If you are looking for your first taste of expedition in a sea kayak the West Coast Explorer is the perfect place to start.
We welcome you to explore the sea kayaking tours we have on offer and hope that you’ll read some of the many reviews our previous travellers have kindly left.
Sea Kayaking tours are available in the following locations:
Every client receives a feedback survey when they return from their guided, self guided or tailor made holiday with us.
Once completed the review is published on our website just as soon as our database updates. The little touches and details are important to us and where issues are raised we make positive changes to our trips to improve your experience.
That's why we read each of our client's reviews and although we don't respond to all of them, if it's glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.
This is my 2nd kayaking trip with wilderness - the first was an introduction to kayaking - we stayed in a bunk house and had good weather and calm water for the most part. The wild camping and sea kayaking was quite a step up from this - if you love camping and are hardy this is great, but I would recommend waiting until July/August for a better chance of good weather and less choppy seas with wind. The Summer Isles are so pretty its nice to see them when the sun is shining.
This is a wonderful trip for first time kayakers. The tuition is second to none and I always felt as if I was in good hands. Scotland is breathtakingly beautiful. So much wildlife to see. On this trip we had a perfect mix of guests - everyone clicked so well. The bunk house is a great base, well equipped with nice hot showers to come back to at the end of the day. I'll definitely be booking another sea kayaking holiday with Wilderness Scotland.
