This is a good way to get views of the rugged Manx coast that you wouldn’t get otherwise. You don’t have to be an experienced kayaker for Sea Kayaking Isle of Man. We had only one previous experience with kayaking, and that was in a river. They had us paddle around the harbor to get comfortable with the kayaks before heading into the sea. Although paddling a kayak is physical activity for sure, you don’t need to be in tip top shape. They even offered to tow anyone who was getting tired. (One of us took them up on it; the other made all the way out and back without help.)

I arranged a bespoke session with George via telephone from the UK, in advance of a recent trip to the IOM. George was fantastic and worked hard to fit in with my itinerary. On the day I met George and his friend Julian at Port Erin. George provided all the kit and after an initial explanation of the plan for the day and a safety briefing, the three of us were off for a trip round the Calf of Man. I'd specifically asked for some training in slightly rougher conditions, and George judged things perfectly- exposing me to just the right conditions to test my skills without terrifying me. A special mention to Julian also, for helping me out when my confidence exceeded my skill levels! In summary, a fantastic day's paddling with two experienced, competent and above all, genuinely nice guys. Thanks a lot.....I'll be back! Gavin H

Been on a few trips with these guys at various locations around the Isle of Man. Each trip has been a brilliant experience... learning a bit more each time we go out. The last trip took us around The Calf of Man from Port Erin... about 9 miles. The wildlife was amazing... dozens of seals (some came a few feet from the kayaks ); Risso's dolphin; Porpoise... and lots of bird life such a Guillemots, Shags & Oyster catcher.

We went on an intermediate trip with Sea Kayaking Isle of Man. I was a little nervous as I had quite a lot of previous experience, but I wasn't sure what to expect. The paddle round the Calf of Man (around 2.5 hours) is one of the most spectacular and reasonably difficult due to the (weather dependent) currents. George, Kieran and Sean were a fabulous team. They made us all feel welcome, included and went at the right pace for everyone. There was plenty of time to take in the awesome scenery and huge amounts of wildlife, including the seals who swam alongside us for some of the way. The mist and patchy rain added to the atmosphere on what was a really calm day. I'd definitely recommend a trip with these guys, whatever your confidence or ability level.

We had some previous experience of sea kayaking, so asked George to take us on some bespoke trips during our stay on the Isle of Man. George kept in contact and updated us on good weather windows (it was a mixed 10days!). He took us on 2 great trips, tailored to our experience, ability and wishes. Our trip around the Calf was a great mix , scenery,birds,caves,tide races and a cicumnavigation- great guide and good kayaks. We think for the it was our best trip with everything in balance. We hope to be back for more !
