Sea Kayaking

Aberporth bay to Tresaith by Kayak

Our Sea Kayaking trips are simply the best way to see the stunning coast of South West Wales.

Why Sea Kayak with us?

Sea Kayaking with Adventure Beyond is a unique and sublime experience. We are lucky enough to have some of Wales' most beautiful coastline right on our front door. You will paddle along at your own pace, marvelling at the stunning views of Britain's only coastal National Park, much of which is also a designated "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" (AONB). As you mingle with the wildlife and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds you, you will be experiencing the coastline from a completely new perspective. And if needed, we can take advantage of the natural harbours and havens in the area to escape the pressures of the weather, to ensure you enjoy your introduction to Sea Kayaking.

Due to the ease of paddling and the quietness of the Kayak's we are able to see wildlife which are often curious of us and come for a closer look.

The seas around Wales also have some of the greatest tidal ranges in the world, which, along with our rocky, reef-filled coastline and changeable weather ensures that we can 'get down to it' and have some fun. In a large swell we will be busy surfing some great waves - come and join whether it's a one time fun experience, or a multi-day expedition. If you want to come along and have a Sea Kayaking experience with Adventure Beyond, don't be afraid to get in touch. All of our Sea Kayaking sessions will consist of a brief introduction to what a Sea Kayak is and an amount of time to get used to the boat once you have been taught all the basic paddling skills you need to know.

Questions and answerers

Can we do the Activity in the rain?

Yes - all water activities can be done in the rain.

Are kayaks stable?

For introduction sessions we use a sit on top kayak. These are stable and have no inside for you to worry about, if you fall off just climb on again.

What happens if the sea is really rough?

Rough seas can make the activity more fun in most cases, however it is really rough we will contact you prior to the session to make alternative arrangements. This could be a different location which is protected from the rough sea or an alternative activity if they sea really is unsafe to be in like using the local river. 

Can we change our Activities?

Yes, you would just need to let us know in advance, and the more notice you give us the more flexible we can be.

Can I wear contact lenses or glasses?

Yes: people do where contact lenses and say its ok but I don't where them so just go on others word. Glasses can be worn but its best to have a leash attached. If they fall off or get broken we can not be held responsible. If they are important to your driving think wisely before taking on session.

What group sizes can you accommodate?

Large and small groups can be accommodated please contact us for more information.

Do we need to be able to swim?

No it is unnecessary we provide you with enough floating kit that all you need to do is move your arms to move around. 

Do you have equipment to fit all sizes?

Yes - we have a wide range of sizes in all of our equipment. Before you head out on your activities our Instructors will ensure that all equipment fits correctly and they'll make any necessary changes.

What if I have a medical condition?

Our Instructors are trained to deal with different situations, so we can easily accommodate people with diabeties, asthma, mild epilepsy, autism and more. Please contact us if you have any questions. If you require a waterproof container to bring medication please let us know in advance.
