Moving Waters Weekender

  • Format: two day trips working in tides and tidal areas
  • Skill level: intermediate skills – no previous experience needed of paddling in tidal waters and crossing eddy lines
  • Paddlers are ideally self-sufficient in terms of kayaks and kit
  • Coaching will look at reading the water, understanding tidal flow, crossing eddy lines, rescues, avoidance tactics

Options for the two days include:

  • Exploring the coastline and islands of the Sound of Luing which includes Belnahua, Lunga, Fladda and the Eilean Dubh isles. We’ll work with the tides and weather permitting – always a memorable day out.
  • Exploring this moving water locations of Cuan Sound or the Grey Dog, using the tides to our advantage
  • Circumnavigations of the Isle of Kerrera or the Isle of Seil
  • Taking shelter on east coast of Luing and Shuna if too windy.
