Courses and coaching

We pride ourselves on the quality of our coaching, creating a supportive environment and focusing on the aspirations and needs of each paddler.

Whether you want to relax exploring sheltered bays on calm days, play in the tide races or somewhere in between, we can support you to develop the techniques, tactics and confidence to get the most out of your days on the water. Our coaches are experienced, qualified, patient and love sharing all that sea kayaking has to offer.

The area around Oban has some of the best waters for coaching, ranging from sheltered lochs to exposed coastlines and strong tidal currents. This means we can cater to all abilities and find stretch and challenge where we need.

All our courses can be combined with day trips and expeditions for put what you learn into practice on a journey!
