We are Scotland's independent, specialist sea kayak shop owned by sea kayakers, for sea kayakers. We have a huge range of sea kayaks for sale from Valley, NorthShore, P&H, Venture, Perception, Tahe Marine and Epic surfskis. 
We also run great sea kayak trips and courses.

Our brands include Valley sea kayaks, North Shore sea kayaks, P&H sea kayaks, Epic Surf skis and Kokatat & PeakUK sea kayaking equipment. 

Oban is Scotland’s premier sea kayaking centre, located only 2 hours from Glasgow airport and you can paddle from our shop around the islands of the Inner Hebrides, or by ferry to the Outer Hebrides.

We run sea kayaking trips and holidays around the Scottish Islands of Mull, Iona, Colonsay, Jura, Islay, Gigha and Lismore using both double and single kayaks. For the rough water sea kayakers, the Falls of Lora are a 5 minute drive and the tide races Grey Dogs and Gulf of Corryvreckan are also possible as day trips.

We love our Patagonia clothing at Sea Kayak Oban!  Easy to wear, easy to clean, great colours, fast drying and keeps you warm even when wet, they make the perfect base layers for kayaking, the perfect After Kayaking clothing and every day wear.  And when it's totally worn and beyond repair, Patagonia clothing can be recycled 100%.
Sometimes we hear that Patagonia is expensive and we agree, but that's the price things cost when the people who make them, from the designer to the factory workers are paid a living wage.  
 We are making space in our kayak store in Oban for the new Patagonia season so check out our selection here on our Sales page , or in Patagonia for Women or Patagonia for Men

We are open everyday from 10am to 5pm in the summer, and there is on-street parking and a large car park just around the corner from our kayak store.

The New   V8 Pro   is Epic's brand new surfski design. It is the perfect surfski for paddlers seeking a significant performance upgrade from the popular Epic V8. Compared to the V8, the V8 Pro adds 12" of length (30 cm) and cuts nearly 1.5 inches (4 cm) off the width, creating a surfski design with paddling dynamics that are both livelier and faster than the V8.

In terms of stability and speed, the V8 Pro fits perfectly between the V8 and V10 Sport, allowing proficient V7 or V8 class paddlers to take the next step in performance.

The V8 Pro cockpit has been designed with a slightly reduced "hump" under the paddler's knees, a feature which will be appreciated by smaller paddlers. It is optimized to fit paddlers from 4'10" (147cm) to 6'5" (196 cm) in height.
Specs
Length: 19’ (5.79m)
Width: 19.9” (50.5 cm)
Depth: 12.6” (32 cm)
Capacity: 80 - 280 lbs (36 – 127 kg)
