We had half day sea kayak trip for 6 people (parents plus four teens), booked for an early evening. It was a stunning trip - our hosts Janni and Kevin know this coastline really well and, while safety was paramount, we had plenty of opportunities for some fun and messing around too. Our sea kayak trip was one of the holiday highlights for both the more and less experienced in our party. We would definitely recommend a visit for the chance to see the wildlife and to explore this beautiful coastline, all in the hands of experienced and charming hosts.

Had a fantastic day out paddling along the coast from Armadale to Point of Aird with Kevin and Angus.

From arrival at the premises at Kilmore to our return we were looke after brilliantly, full Covid precautions were in place at Kilmore and throughout the duration of the day. The application of these precautions did not detract from the experience in any way whatsoever but left everybody feeling safe throughout.
Kevin and Angus managed to provide a mix of coaching and a focus on having fun throughout, giving tips on technique and providing information on wildlife local history which was fascinating.
Kevin also took loads of photographs throughout which he forwarded to us afterwards

To cap it all they managed to book some stunning weather for us which was great, although I wouldn't let the weather put you off booking as I have paddled with some other companies and there is something strangely enjoyable about paddling in the rain.

Finally a big shout out to Kevin an Janni as on my return home I discovered that I had lost my Go Pro, my paddling boots and water bottle. A quick e mail and the guys confirmed they had been found and would post them on, great service.
If you are in the area do yourself a favour and book up,, paddling gives you such a different perspective on the landscape particularly in such a stunning setting as Skye. The service provided by the guys is second to none, you are put at ease straight away, supplied with the best of kit and given expert coaching without feeling you are being coached. I should point out that Julie and myself are novices, so I am sure that no matter whether you are similar to ourselves or a more experienced paddler looking to improve your skills the guys would mould the course to suit.

Do yourselves a favour and book up, you won't regret it.

Absolutely superb 4 day kayak trip with these guys, the route and itinerary was very well thought out, and they were willing to change things at short notice depending on the weather conditions to make sure we had the time on the water. The support offered in very challenging conditions was very professional and well appreciated. I can't recommend them highly enough for anyone else that maybe considering a kayaking trip with them.

Thank you, Simon. It was a real pleasure to spend the 4 days with you. The weather was certianly not ideal but it was amazing how you all progressed and learned to deal with wind and waves. We are lucky that we can move around to find the best spots, but sometimes you just can't hide from the weather. Well done everyone!

This is the second time we have used South Skye Sea Kayak and again they did not disappoint. Weather wasn't great and the waves were higher than I would have liked but the guide Sean was excellent - so upbeat and positive and tried his best to find some great spots to visit. We weren't comfortable on single kayaks so he was more than happy to get us a double, so accommodating. The scenery is stunning regardless of weather and you're virtually guaranteed to see the seals which is brilliant. Cannot recommend this company enough.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We're glad you had a good time with us despite the challenging conditions. It's not aways easy with outdoor activities, but you managed really well and the double kayaks are certainly a blessing when it is a bit choppier out there. See you again next time, hopefully when the weather is calm and sunny.

Cannot recommend more! While we were incredibly lucky with the weather, Kevin also contributed to a fantastic experience by adapting the trip to our varying needs and skill levels (we were a group of four). Having gone during COVID times, our hygiene concerns were taken quite seriously and wetsuits and gear put aside for us in advance upon request. On our half day trip we not only got to kayak but also learned lots about the area, its people and its nature. Best value for money you’ll get! Thank you Kevin and team!

We had an incredible full day of kayaking with Kevin. The weather was typically Scottish and he chose a route that would be sheltered from the worst of the wind. We were supplied with excellent gear which kept us warm throughout the day.

We had never kayaked before but Kevin was able to make us comfortable paddling in the kayaks fairly quickly. Kevin has excellent knowledge of the area and we visited a Coral beach and abandoned village. To top it all off we were able to get up close to an otter just minding its own business.

It was a really memorable experience and well deserving of all the 5-star reviews

We had an enjoyable day with Kevin. He gave us helpful feedback on our paddling in a relaxed, encouraging manner. We had a full day trip which was partly coaching and part beautiful journey down the Sleat coast. Our coaching included various paddle strokes, turning in the wind and anticipating waves on a rocky shoreline. We also saw seals, two otters and a sea eagle. Would highly recommend.

We had a lovely afternoon kayaking around the south of Skye. Our guide Angus was friendly, knowledgable and skilled. He made sure we were all comfortable and was quick to respond if anyone needed anything. He pointed out wildlife and scenery. Kayaking against the backdrop of the Cullins was stunning. Angus took photos and sent these out to us the same evening, a lovely momento of a super afternoon - a big thank you!

An amazing family/mixed group day trip down the coast to Point of Sleat for lunch on the beach, taking in the views, spotting seals and birds, enjoying the peace and freedom on the water. The weather was kind with warm sunshine and calm seas. Easily the best activity/day of the holiday! Sean was knowledgeable, helpful and good company, taking the time to assist and check on everyone in the group throughout the day - a huge thank you for the extra support for our youngest group member when she needed it. We all loved our introduction to Sea Kayaking and highly recommend South Skye Sea Kayak.

Excellent choice of the full day for my family of beginners. We had an amazing time thanks great organisation and engaged staff.

Kids friendly, well organized, clean gear, gr4at day, pictures on water

The kids (ard 10yr old) really enjoyed the whole experience, with duo kayaks... next time, they promise they would be stronger to handle solo!Thank you for the patience in taking them long ans keeping them engaged!
I personally appreciated the little attentions: some historical explanations on what is around us in this beautiful nature. We really appreciated the nice touch of the warm juice, and the the pictures taken by the guide. I also apprecaited all the clear explanations pre-sesssion which meant everything was smooth and fast on the day - well done for the organisation. Other point, we noted and appreciated the good status of our gear, clean and near new wetsuits and everything else. Thanks!
