Kayaking in Pembrokeshire

A different view of Pembrokeshire.

Kayaking in Pembrokeshire is a spectacular way to see the pristine coastline and its marine and bird life.

The varied 220 mile Pembrokeshire coastline allows paddlers of all levels to explore Britain's only coastal National Park at their own pace.

Stop to rest on a secluded beach, drift past seals and porpoise, explore mysterious and awe-inspiring caves or play on the clean water waves of some of the UK's finest beaches.

Experienced paddlers can fine tune their skills with one of the many experienced and qualified guides in the wild or mild Pembrokeshire waters. ‘The Bitches’ near St Davids has one of the fastest tidal flows in the UK with speeds of up to 18 knots as the tide floods north, creating whirlpools, eddy lines and big wave trains. It’s not for the inexperienced so if you don’t know what you’re doing, don’t go!

If you’re new to kayaking why not try a taster session? It’s a great choice for families, you’ll learn about the equipment, basic handling and safety at sea before heading out with your guide to explore the caves and coves that dot the coastline. Remember to pack a camera as you never know who might pop out of the water to greet you.

The chance to silently glide through crystal clear waters on a perfect sunny day, get up close to sea birds and seals and to view the cliffs of the Pembrokeshire coast from sea level has to be on your ‘must do’ list whenever you visit Pembrokeshire.
