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.

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.

A big Thank You to everyone who came along to the Sea Kayak Demo day at Largs Marina hosted by West Coast Paddlers.  

Pictures courtesy of Peter Benson of West Coast Paddlers sea kayak club.

It was great to see such a mixed group of paddlers trying a big mix of sea kayaks and surf skis. 

We realise it wasn't possible to provide all the answers in such a short space of time but you are welcome to come to Oban and demo when we are open or to rent for a day or two if you need a longer spell in your possible first choice.

We will be at Rosemarkie near Inverness this Saturday 5th November and Stonehaven Harbour on Sunday 6th November.
