I’m keen to help paddlers progress and obtain the skills which will allow them to take up the sport and be self sufficient and safe within the oceanic environment. The UK is an Island/s nation and there are so many possibilities. I mean it when I say that the UK is the most diverse and amazing country in the world (In environmental/geographic terms).

Equipment, Prices and Contact
At Ocean City Sea Kayaking we use fully ocean going, closed cockpit sea kayaks. Some new paddlers may find this a challenge so it is recommended to have some previous experience. If you are a newbie still get in touch as we can facilitate individuals or pairs and cover lots of intro skills, or we can direct you towards a provider using more basic equipment.
Whats the difference between Sit on Top and Closed cockpit?
Well, its exactly as their description suggests. Many other providers use Sit On Top kayaks as a standard piece of equipment these days. A Sit On Top kayak is stable, goes forwards easily and if it were to tip the paddler simply falls off. Great for short distances and for novices but not hugely progressive and skillful.
A closed cockpit kayak takes a little more skill to use (However is easy to learn if you progress quickly). A closed cockpit kayak is generally faster, long distance capable, protects the paddler in colder or hotter conditions and is capable at paddling in rough seas and wind. A full safety brief and instructions are given to every participant before we go.
Weather may affect the exact route taken. A full skills check and safety brief will happen before embarking on any trip and the outcome may also affect the route taken. Other paddlers unknown to you may be present within the group.
