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.

Sea Kayak Oban's fleet of fast sea kayaks and surf skis is available to rent for the race on Saturday 27th August 2016 .

Epic Surf Skis V5, V6, V7, V8 and V10 sport

Valley sea kayaks Nordkapp 40, Etain 17.1, 17.5 and 17.7

Northshore sea kayaks Ocean 17 and Ocean 17.6

We have several tandem sea kayaks available to rent, including the much-loved and well-travelled tandem Northshore Atlantic 2.

The tandem kayaks are a great way to travel and explore, there is enough space between the 2 paddlers that you don't have to paddle in sync (although it will help your time).
They are faster and more stable than single sea kayaks and require less effort per person to achieve a good speed.
This makes them ideal if you fancy taking part but feel a bit shy or unsure of your endurance and stamina.

Prices are £30 per single kayak / surf ski and £50 per tandem. 
Boats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Payment needs to be made at time of booking.
All boats are to be collected from the shop Sea Kayak Oban and returned there after the race.
Proceeds are donated to RNLI.

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 Autumn-Winter 2016 so check out our selection here on our Sales page , or in Patagonia for Women or Patagonia for Men
