Do I need to be able to swim?

Should we choose a double or a single kayak?
Our double XL kayaks are by far the most popular kayak, as they are the most stable and you can share the paddling together. Please note: Our guides will always be in their own kayaks and cannot share a kayak with any guests or their children.
Why can I not select more than 1 single kayak?
At weekends and during the summertime only double kayaks are available, with the exception (where possible) for solo travelers or odd numbered groups.
Do minimum numbers apply for the experience to go ahead?
Yes, a minimum of 6 participants must be booked in for this experience to go ahead. If this is not the case we will be in touch to reschedule.
Do we always get into the cave / caves?
There is no guarantee that you will enter a cave by kayak, the route is dictated by marine conditions at the time of your tour. For sea kayaking, there are many factors to take into account, conditions change quickly at sea. Ensuring the group's safety is priority. Your guide will determine the best route and actions to take at that specific time based on their ongoing risk assessment. Rest assured that you will be given the best adventure possible at the time
