Explore the coastline from a new angle

A different view of Pembrokeshire

Sea kayaking in 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.

I thought walking the Pembrokeshire Coast path was awe-inspiring but my breath was truly taken while sea kayaking along the coast’s secret bays and petrified lava flow cliffs.

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. Or try a half day taster session with an activity centre in a sheltered bay, perfect for family groups.
