Sea kayaking in Pembrokeshire, Wales

We offer sea kayaking as part of these adventures and events:

Enjoying the exhilaration of kayaking on the sea

For beginners and those seeking a relaxing paddle there are picturesque quiet harbours and sheltered bays where sea caves, secluded beaches and high cliffs can be explored. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of gliding through amazing rock gardens as you explore along the coast.  If there’s a swell around we can play at “rock-hopping” with the waves and rocks…adrenalin for those who seek it!

Intermediate paddlers can take longer journeys along the coast, sampling the delights of moving water and surf.

Advanced paddlers push the envelope in amazing tidal rapids, creaming surf and booming swells, and the off-shore islands beckon; Ramsey, Skomer, South Bishop are all island realms ripe for exploration.

Preseli Venture can offer sea kayaking sessions for all ages and abilities – from a half day taster session on an adventure day, a multi day sea kayak exploration on a sea kayaking holiday, ‘learn to’ sea kayak weekend courses, the Adrenalin Cocktail adventure weekends, to family kayaking sessions and family holidays.

Why choose Pembrokeshire for sea kayaking?

The Pembrokeshire coastline is world renowned as a sea kayaking paradise, with clean Atlantic ocean waters, the beauty and variety of the coastal scenery with fascinating features to be found under the high sea cliffs; waterfalls, sea caves and natural rock arches, and a variety of fun conditions in which to play, from bobbing between sea stacks, catching waves through rocky channels, chilling out in idyllic sheltered coves, to surfing onto secluded sandy beaches.

Kayaks are also the best means for observing the wildlife. You might find yourself kayaking amongst Atlantic grey seals that breed around the coast and off-shore islands, or porpoise and dolphins that live in the deeper waters of Cardigan Bay. The coast is awash with sea birds; kittiwakes, razorbills, choughs, shags and cormorants, also the impressive gannets who have their colony on Grassholm island.

We booked a half-day sea kayaking experience and had a wonderful time. We were all 50+ first-timers, some quite nervous. Our instructor gave us a comprehensive briefing, explaining all the equipment, which was in good condition. We were taken down to a sheltered, rocky cove at nearby Abercastle and set off in our kayaks. We spent our time exploring the cliffs and caves around the cove with our instructor keeping an eye on us so that we always felt safe. The more competent were given the opportunity to go further out into the open sea and at the end everyone was grinning with a real sense of achievement. If, like us, you are holidaying in Pembrokeshire I can recommend Preseli Venture to give you a bit of extra excitement and interest.

Where do we go and what type of kayaks do we use?

The locations we use are close-by and are wonderful wilderness areas along the unspoilt rugged north Pembrokeshire coastline. You start off in a lovely sheltered bay or harbour and then head out to explore along the coast. As we work in partnership with the National Trust we are licensed to use their nearby idyllic harbour and stunningly beautiful bay where we can glide through amazing rock gardens and play at exhilarating rock-hopping!

Preseli Venture offers different types of kayaks for our clients to use depending on the duration and nature of the trip and your own preferences. For full days out sea kayaking on our sea kayak holidays and courses we would typically use our specialist sea kayaks which are perfect for longer days out.

For families and half-days out exploring under the cliffs and into the sea caves we usually take out the general purpose kayaks which are perfect for poking about between the rock and playing in the swells.

We also have the option of our sit-on-top kayaks, both singles and doubles, which are perfect for families with younger children and also for nervous adults or those who prefer a more “open” style kayak experience.

Preseli Venture is a Canoe Wales approved sea kayaking provider with qualified, friendly and experienced guides.

We provide our clients with all the specialist equipment necessary to enjoy this amazing adventure, we keep our kit in excellent condition and all specialist equipment is provided.

The wild blue ocean, dramatic cliffs, and stunning unspoilt coastline of the Pembrokeshire coast is perhaps Britain’s last true wilderness area. A place where you experience raw, spectacular nature. A place best entered under your own steam. A place for kayaking.
