What Our Paddlers Say


My first time sea kayaking, and I couldnt have asked for a better guide/instructor/location. It was a fantastic experience, and I now desperate to do more sea kayaking! What a fantastic way to see beautiful Scotland. I cant recommend enough Norwest Sea Kayaking, you wont only have top quality and local teaching/guidance but also a great day with not only sea kayaking but also hot chocolate and whiskey!


It was last year in April but I remember it like yesterday: a professional and fun instructor, well equipped (all sizes for everyone), really good knowledge of her region, beautiful spots discovered. . . nice moment sharing fun and a nice special hot chocolate.and she even helped me with my low battery at the end of the day.

I recommend ++++


What a great paddle yesterday with Jules. Her local knowledge and sense of fun Is infectious. She pointed out wildlife we would have missed both above and below the water.

We highly recommend her to you all. We will be back for more .
