The Orwell estuary is renowned on the east coast for its beauty & hugely popular with yacht & dinghy sailers alike. The area is a haven for water foul as well as predatory birds such as buzzards, kestrel, kites & owls. We regularly see a common seal hunting in the shallow, warm waters for the abundant mullet that come to the surface for the warmth.

Enjoy the wonders of these beautiful waters from a kayak, guided by professional, full time guides with over seventeen years experience leading groups. We'll provide a stable sit-on-top kayak, paddle & buoyancy aid & your event is fully guided. The route is designed by NOMAD Sea Kayaking to take in both marinas as well as the deep water alongside the main shipping channel up the centre of the estuary. We'll have a short stretch of our legs on a small beach north of Woolverstone marina before heading down the estuary, through the marina itself.

Suitable for complete beginners, guests need only basic flexibility to sit in a kayak & stand themselves up again. Children from the age of twelve onwards are welcome & we offer a discount for couples & groups of five (5) or more so please check out Explore Kayaking - Couples and Explore Kayaking - Groups to take advantage of these great discounts.
