The Kayak Expedition journeys along a beautiful stretch of the South Devon coastline. The expedition is run on Sit On Top Kayaks: stable and easy to paddle, these craft allow us to take the novice paddler into remote marine environments.

Here you will have the opportunity to explore our rugged coastline up-close and personal with limited previous experience or training. Our highly experienced and qualified kayak coaches will keep and eye on the sea forecasts and may make amendments so to maximise your enjoyment of the experience.

For the Training and acclimatisation evenings, you will be staying at a campsite with toilet and shower facilities.

Please note that between 5pm on 27th July and 5pm on 28th July, no accommodation, activities or pastoral care is provided by Reach Outdoors. We can assist with finding a campsite for accommodation and you are welcome to borrow our expedition tents and cooking equipment for the overnight on 27th July should you be camping.
