Sea Kayaking in Moray

For 2024 Moray Kayaking has held prices and added options to reduce costs through group bookings. Take a look at the different options and the savings you can make if you get some friends together and book as one.

The Moray Firth is a forgotten treasure in the world of sea kayaking. While it doesn’t have the many sea lochs and islands of the West Coast, it also misses out on the midges, the long hours on single track roads and the 90% chance of rain. In fact Morayshire is one of Scotland best kept secrets. Don’t believe me? Check the independent guide must-see-scotland for some of the statistics!

The Moray Firth has it all – from stunning beaches to rock gardens, caves, sea-life, quaint little historical ports and the most amazing access points where the kayaker’s most cherished rewards are plentiful (hot drinks, public loos and an easy launch). Check out a few of the locations I paddle from here…

The North Sea offers some good going swell of course, but with great options on the Black Isle, Inverness, Moray Coast and into Aberdeenshire, there is always a place to paddle safely. On the odd occasion when the sea forbids us to venture out, an abundance of lochs can be found within easy travelling distances. Lochs can, in themselves, offer significant interest for sea paddlers especially ones steeped in so much history and wildlife as those in the Highlands.

I offer guided trips on the Moray Firth as well as sea kayak coaching and paddle health sessions. Everything I offer is underpinned by a philosophy of safe paddling for maximum enjoyment and whole-health benefit. I tailor my coaching to ensure that you not only improve your skills technically and tactically, but you gain a real understanding of why it is so good for you.

Please take a look at my courses for next year and get in touch if you have any questions. I can also offer coaching and guiding outside of these dates (and wider afield of course), so please get in touch if you think I can support your paddling.
