Guest Reviews

This is our third website over our 16-year history. NOMAD Sea Kayaking has hundreds of  'Event Reviews'. Our new 2021 website has the new feature of 'private accounts' for each guest with its inherent security protocols which dictate that an 'Event Review' can only be submitted if that guest has an account AND has completed the event/s. This ensures that all of our reviews are genuine. It will take the 2021 season to build our 'Event Reviews' across our portfolio & you'll see the 'star rating' in the top right side corner of each event as they come online.  In the interim, you can read our reviews for the past 6 years here. You'll also see a guest review from our previous website in most of the event descriptions. 

All of our reviews are authenticated here at NOMAD Sea Kayaking so please contact us should you wish to speak with any guest for a testimonial & NOMAD Sea Kayaking will provide the contact details once we have authorised this with the guest concerned.
