Come and explore the Jurassic coast with our qualified British Canoeing coaches and enjoy the adventure of a lifetime. We are passionate about all things sea kayaking and the Dorset coastline is the perfect place to kayak and enjoy all of the sights and history carved into this Unesco world heritage site. We can cater for a variety of abilities and will tailor a trip for your requirements and skill level.
We launch from various sites along the Dorset coastline which include Portland, Ringstead, Kimmeridge, Swanage, and Studland. Each Sea kayaking trip allows you to visit and see a variety of sites and landmarks. Full details will be sent on booking. Check out our gallery for previous event photos.
You will need previous experience in a kayak to attend my sea kayaking adventures but don’t worry about being a pro as you will receive coaching throughout the trip.

Each adventure comes with Kayak hire and safety equipment including kayak, paddle, buoyancy aid, helmet and a dry bag for all your personal belongings you will need during your trip.
Things to bring: Please ensure you wear suitable clothing for the weather conditions and it is advisable to bring some spare dry clothes (although the majority of people do not end up in the water unless they choose to) Trainers or wetsuit shoes are ideal, but be prepared to get them wet. It is important to wear sunscreen even on cloudy days. Our sea kayaking adventures are full-day trips and can cover between 10-15 km please bring food and drink for the day as there isn’t always the opportunity to stop for ice cream. For this adventure, you will need to bring your own wetsuit or drysuit.

Please appreciate that Instructors will be unable to wait for late arrivals due to the commitment of getting the group out on the water to enjoy their full experience. You will also be asked to complete a consent form and medical disclosure which can take 5 minutes, again we don’t want this to eat up into your adventure time!
