“there is nothing--absolutely nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats”
Our fun Kayaking sessions range from learning new skills, journeying along the spectacular Anglesey coastline, splashing in waves and playing games to gain skills and confidence. We have a fleet of sit on top kayaks, which are super safe, easily manoeuvrable and stable, plus a couple of tandem sit on tops to cover all abilities.
WHAT MAKES IT SO GOOD?We are fortunate to be in a great location with a beautiful safe beach just 10 minutes from Anglesey Outdoors which is ideal for beginners and those who enjoy a gentle paddle exploring sheltered bays coves, beaches and cliffs with a wide variety of wildlife. Being on an island we have a stunning coastline on all sides of us, with plenty of options for windy weather when we need them. Our staff are all experienced and qualified paddlers, so you’ll get the most out of your time on the water. We’ll have waterproof cameras so we can get loads of photos which we will share online.

WHO CAN GO KAYAKING?
It’s a very friendly sport, so just about anyone can do it with something for everyone, young or old.
For journeys a reasonable level of fitness is useful and because of the need for controlling the paddle and having the strength to move the boat, we generally wouldn’t recommend kayaking for under 10’s. With our tandem kayaks we can take younger and less able clients, please check with the office for availability.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
We’ll provide you with the most important things: Winter weight wetsuit, wetsuit hood (if really cold), helmet and buoyancy aids for those that need them.
You would need to bring:
- Swimming costume, to wear under the wetsuit. Gents, baggy shorts are not good under a suit, but trunks or even underwear are fine for this.
- Shoes that you are happy to get wet. Heavy clumpy shoes are not ideal neither is anything that would come off easily in the water, so bring some trainers or pumps etc.
- Towel, to get changed at the end. Depending on where we go this might be open air changing so a big towel is best.
- Some spare clothes to change into at the end of the day (don't forget underwear, socks etc. if you arrived ready to go!)
- That’s it! You need minimal stuff. If you do have any medication that you usually carry, make sure you bring that too, we can look after it for you at the beach.
DURATION OF ACTIVITY?
We run kayaking as a half-day session though it can be combined with other activities, such as bush craft or coasteering to make a whole day session as a journey exploring the coast. Our half days run from 09:15 to 12:45 for morning sessions, or from 13:15 to 16:45 for an afternoon. Both are 3:30 hours long which is a good amount of time.
HOW MANY CAN PARTICIPATE?
We work with 8 people to one instructor, if you are a few more than this we can always get a second member of staff too. We wouldn’t have more than 12 on the water at once though even with two staff.
WHERE DO YOU GO KAYAKING
This very much depends on the weather, if it's perfectly flat calm, our local spot in only a 10 minute walk away where the kayaks will be ready for you,. If that venue isn't ideal we have a range of options within 20 minutes that take into account the tide and abilities of the group. There are beaches that get surf, a tranquil estuary for observing wild life, ‘rock hopping’ coastal journeys and even a bridge to surf through – so you can go more than once and have a totally different experience!
WHEN DO YOU GO KAYAKING?
We can do it all year round but May through to September tend to be warmer air temperatures and better weather so that’s the prime time. We are lucky to be in a mild climate so even in March and April we can get out. The sea warms up all summer, so by October it’s at its warmest, and with Autumn storms rolling through we often get some surf to play on. We have full winter weight wetsuits that are designed for cold water, and with wetsuits hoods if it’s particularly chilly, most people are fine even at cold times of the year for half a day.
