About Sea Kayaking
Kayaking is not only an Olympic sport but an activity that almost anyone can undertake in any body of water on earth.
A little practice using a paddle, some work on your balance and core stability you’re off. Whether it be gliding between icebergs in the glistening, glassy waters of Antarctica or the open ocean, cruising downstream on the weekend just around the corner from your home.
Although it’s a relatively easy and accessible activity to get into there is also a lot to learn if you’re willing. Not only will you improve your technique but it’s an invigorating and completely immersive way to switch off, stay healthy and enjoy the great outdoors.
There’s almost no one who knows more or has more experience in exploration sea kayaking than our own John Weir who heads up the sea kayaking for our global expeditions. John has spent his life exploring the world and crossed every continent in kayaks and rafts, including throughout the Pacific and even Siberia – he is a true expert in the field.
