SCOTLANDS SEA KAYAK CENTRE in Oban OFFERS Great Sea Kayaking Holidays, Learn To Sea Kayak with Excellent Coaches and Visit Our Wonderful Sea Kayak Shop.
Sea Kayak Oban is Open every day except Thursday for the Spring 10am to 5pm. Sometimes we are around earlier when the National Kayak School has sea kayak courses running.
There is still a lot more to go on the online shop but its a start and we will add more when we have the time.
Lots of new stock from Patagonia & other Outdoor brands as well as Sea Kayaking gear. Also some great kayaking novelties email@example.com This stunning weather continues so its really worth the drive. Why not take our Valley Rapier 18 for a spin or a Point65 XP18? Come and talk to us about things to do in Oban.
Come to Oban and enjoy the Spring weather and enjoy browsing the huge selection of Sea Kayaking Equipment, fashionable Outdoor Clothing (including Patagonia, Keen, Mountain Hardwear, Smartwool) and the cosy book corner. Just 50 metres from our doorway you can try any of our 40 Demo Sea Kayaks. It continues gloriously sunny here on the west coast (though with a few showers) .

Last year we saw dolphins, seals, basking sharks and otters within 10 minutes paddling of the slip.
For the gnarly paddler there is the Falls of Lora, the Corryvreckan & the Grey Dogs.

For those of you who are not sure sea canoeing is the same as sea kayaking its just an older term. Open canoeing is the same as Canadian Canoeing. Sea kayaks do perform much better on the sea or exposed lochs ie in windy situations than open canoes. If you dont like the idea of being enclosed check out our super safe sit on tops or fishing kayaks as they are also known.
