Trip Grading

PFD’s (personal flotation device) are mandatory on all of our trips. All participants should be able to swim. On most camping trips the kayaks are loaded with camping equipment, food and clothing in expedition style.

Minimum Age: 14 years for easy trips and 16 years for all other trips unless privately arranged.


Suitable for active paddlers of all abilities

Some prior paddling experience, in kayaks with spray skirts, in a variety of weather conditions is beneficial. We may encounter wind on these trips, however the water is warm and fairly protected.


Suitable for intermediate paddlers

Participants should have experience paddling in a variety of sea conditions. These trips involve paddling longer distances sometimes in wind, swell and occasionally involve small surf landings. Paddling may occur in exposed and open water for parts of the trip.

Moderate Plus

Suitable for strong intermediate paddlers

These trips may encounter more difficult and varied paddling conditions. Participants should be fit, paddle regularly and have experience in open water, ocean swell, wind and some current.
