We recommend that experienced paddlers bring as much of their own equipment as possible, but we can provide any technical kit that you don’t already own.

  • Cag and dry trousers or dry suit
  • Buoyancy aid (PDF)
  • Wetsuit boots or kayak boots
  • Sea kayak towline
  • Torch and light sticks
  • Marine knife
  • Whistle
  • First aid kit

Remember… Sea Kayaks are designed to be able to carry heavy loads with minimal or no extra effort to the paddler and there is plenty of storage space. So unlike a walking or cycling trip please feel free to bring whatever you need to be comfortable for the day! (e.g. bring lots of warm clothes just in case the weather turns cold!)
