Dan, Tim & Nick kayaked with me on Loch Ewe. We had a very low tide and were able to see huge numbers of starfish and other sea creatures as we paddled around the coastline. On our journey back towards the beach we spotted a group of porpoise.
Jack and Jack spent the morning on some super calm water, it was so calm we could gaze through the clear water and easily see the sea bed meters below.
Howard and Amy were on their roundabout way to drop Amy off at Glasgow uni from the far south – what better route than to pass Wester Ross?! They’re due out kayaking again in a few days, so chose sit on tops today and they’ll compare them to the sea kayaks they go in next time.
Steve and Kate spent the morning paddling along the coast from Poolewe. As we paddled the tide went out and we were able to spot more wildlife under the surface.
Philippa and Trevor joined me for a sunny morning on the water. We had a reasonably low tide at the end of the session which enabled us to spot a few starfish as we paddled around the craggy coastline.
Sadie and Tim had a calm start to their session, but the wind picked up and gave us some fun waves to play with at the end! Sadie now lives in Gairloch and is keen to explore the area from the water as well as the land!
Amy and Andrew joined me for a very calm session at Poolewe. We had almost mirror like water which was great for spotting crabs and starfish through the water. Plenty of seals inquisitively watching us too!
Maureen and Liz spent a rather soggy morning paddling with me from Poolewe. As well as continuous rain, the wind was stronger than it was due to be so we had a challenging morning. Luckily both Maureen and Liz were keen for a challenge and kept smiling throughout!
Christopher, Alex and Janet had some sunshine for our afternoon exploring the coastline and wildlife from Poolewe.
Mark and Siobhan kayaked around the shoreline at Inverewe Garden. Not the normal view of the garden, but a pretty good one!
Allison and Will joined me for another paddle on Loch Maree. Great paddling with them as always. The weather was fantastic, so good they decided to practice rescue skills at the end.
Zoe and Malcolm had a great afternoon kayaking on loch Ewe from Poolewe with me. It’s always nice when we have mirror like water!
Alison and Martin joined me again for another session, just two days since their last one with me! This time we paddled from Poolewe for a change of scenery and different seals.
Alison and Martin had some sunny weather to kayak around from Gairloch harbour. They were keen to learn kayaking skills as they’re keen to do more in the future.
Sarah and Paul used sit on top kayaks with me to explore the craggy coastline south from Gairloch harbour. As normal we spotted seals in the water as we paddled around.
Michael, Alena, Tom and Ales paddled with me in a mixture of boats. They opted to have a canoe, a sit on top and a sea kayak.
Ed, Anna, Charlotte and Daniel spent the morning learning canoeing skills around the coastline at Inverewe Garden. So keen to practice their skills they even practised some canoe rescue skills at the end!
