Kayak Guided Trips In Edinburgh

Getting on the water from either St Davids Harbour or Aberdour there are many half day options. We can explore the islands of Inchcolm or Inch Garvie with the chance of visiting the historic buildings of St Colm's Abbey and the fortifications used during the world wars. Or we can paddle under the iconic Forth Rail Bridge, now a UNESCO world heritage site.  If you are looking for an alternative sightseeing experience, something different to do or are looking for a unique gift for a loved one, these are the trips for you.  I will meet you at Silversands Beach Aberdour, provide you with the kayaking kit needed for the trip and teach you the basic skills to get safely onto the water and enjoy the freedom of sea kayaking with a short journey on the Firth of Forth. Prices per person for open courses: - Half Day and Evening £45 (3 hours) - Family Sessions (Double sea kayaks): - £30 per person (2 hours)  For those who wish to book a private half, full day or evening session the course/trip costs are: For groups of four or more a half day/evening is £45 per person and a   full day £80 per person. - For three people a half day/evening is £165 and a full day £270 - For two people a half day/evening is £150 and full day £200 - For an individual a half day/evening is £95 and a full day £140 I provide the kayaking kit and my expertise as I guide you on the water.  You would only need to bring your enthusiasm and the clothes you need for the water, so some sporty clothing or outdoor style if you have it.  Sea Kayaking is classed as a dry sport, so you shouldn't get wet, but it is worth bringing a spare set of clothes and a towel - just in case.  You will however, get wet feet, so wear a set of shoes that can get wet and bring a spare set or wear wellies.  We also recommend that you bring drinking water, snacks for on the water and a spare top to take in a dry bag in case you get chilly on the water.  We also hope that you will need sun screen and a sun hat.  If you have any questions, we can answer them through the GetMyBoat messaging platform before paying. Simply press "Request to reserve" and send us an inquiry for a personalized offer.
