Event Details

Take to the water for a magical evening of kayaking in the shelter of the Churchill Barriers.

Arctic terns dive for fish all around and bonxies regularly patrol overhead here. We'll look out for shags and red-breasted mergansers feeding nearby and perhaps catch the mournful whistles of tysties floating across the water from their nearby nests.

Qualified instructors from Kirkwall Kayak Club will take care of you throughout the evening and we’ll have tea, coffee and hot chocolate on hand to warm you up afterwards. No experience necessary, though you must be a confident swimmer and prepared to learn how to paddle unaided. Open to those aged 18 or over. Please note this event is particularly dependent on suitable weather conditions. Booking required.
