What a great day exploring this lovely Loch, just as one of the groups were about to embark on a trip across to the derelict missile testing platform a seal bobbed up to say hello.
The cadets were on a free event that one of our outdoor leaders ran ,everybody had a very rewarding day and spotted lots of wildlife whilst learning lots of paddle skills too.
It was along bust day but we were able to facilitate three separate
paddling experiences for the cadets throughout the day, we hope this will encourage them to do more.
We had a great bunch of guys out at the weekend on one of our fantastic Sea kayak Safari’s. These are a great way to explore the west coast of Scotland.

We have some excellent days out in our Sea Kayaks. These vary from exploring the Fiord like sea lochs of the West coast looking for wildlife, to paddling on the River Clyde estuary and visiting an old shipwreck. Summer is a great time to get on the water.

Yesterday we had a great time out on Loch Long. We were finding out if it was possible to add snorkelling to our already fantastic Sea Loch Safaris. We quickly found a nice sheltered bay were we could try this out. After going over the use and fitting of equipment we decided that this would be a brilliant addition as well as being fun and very interesting. There is so much life going on under the canoes that is very seldom seen.
