Event Details

Join the Kirkwall Kayak Club to explore this rocky coastline by kayak, where seabirds fish against the dramatic backdrop of the Hoy hills.

We'll look out for shags, red-throated divers and black guillemots on the water, with Arctic terns overhead, colourful seaweed below and the calls of birds all around. Most of all, though, it’s about enjoying the magical experience of being at water level and seeing the coastline from a different perspective.

Qualified instructors from Kirkwall Kayak Club will take care of you throughout the morning 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, although we may be able to alter location to adapt to the conditions.
