Do I need to be able to swim?
No, you do not need to be able to swim to join one of our kayaking experiences. You will always be provided with a buoyancy aid, which will keep you afloat if you are in the water and a guide will always be near to help you back into your kayak, although our sit-on top kayaks are extremely stable – especially our double XL kayaks.
Do I need prior kayaking experience?
Not at all, our experiences are suitable for all, ranging from people who have never kayaked before to experienced kayakers.
Is there a minimum age?
The minimum age for our Sea Cave Kayaking Experience is 10 and anyone younger than 15 will have to share a kayak with a parent/guardian.
Are there weight or height restrictions?
There is a maximum weight limit for our kayaking experiences. The maximum weight limit for our single kayaks is approximately 140kg / 22 stone and the combined total weight restriction for our double XL kayaks is approximately 200kg / 32 stone. There are no height restrictions on our experiences.
Should we choose a double or a single kayak?
Our double XL kayaks are by far the most popular kayak, as they are the most stable and you can share the paddling together. If you are alone or have a group with an odd number you could of course choose a mix of double and single kayaks too. Please note: our guides will always be in their own kayaks and cannot share a kayak with any guests or their children.
