Suffolk ALL INCLUSIVE Kayaking & Wild Camping

All Inclusive Wild Camping from your Kayak!

£289.98 p/seat

Wild camping with 'luxury' added to the mix! Everything is provided, your tent, sleeping mat, sleeping bag & even your evening drink with dinner, tea, and coffee with breakfast as well as your kayak, paddle, and buoyancy aid all provided. Just turn up & enjoy your guided Kayaking adventure. This is wild camping without the hassle!

Arrive on Saturday morning at Bawdsey Quay (Suffolk) to meet your Guides & brief for your guided Kayaking Trip. Each guest will be provided with a geodesic 2 person tent, sleeping mat, sleeping bag as well as their own kayak, paddle & buoyancy aid. 

We launch off the shingle beach with a 'seal launch', sliding down the shingle slope straight into the sea for a bit of fun & paddle north up the coast enjoying the deserted & quiet coastline with the rich history of the Second World War 'D Day' preparations & the Cold War nuclear test bunkers at Orford Ness. Conditions provide for flat calm to rolling swells to play on the swells & your Guide will stop from time to time to tell you about the area you're in & the local wildlife. The area is rich in birdlife with Kestrels hunting over the grass & bush verges, buzzards soaring high, long eared owls nesting & visiting seals so binoculars are strongly recommended.

Arrive at our campsite in the early afternoon to set up our base camp & enjoy some downtime to relax & settle in with a cup of tea/coffee. Once you've settled into your tent & had a look around the campsite we have the option of paddling out again in the afternoon. This time visiting the mouth of the River Ore which leads up to Aldeburgh with beautiful views out to sea & north to the old lighthouse of Orford Ness, the famous former secret nuclear test site.

Once back at camp we'll enjoy a glass of wine sun-downer on the beach, relax & chill. Then free time to enjoy your surroundings with a walk, bird watching, contemplating life, or just have a snooze in the sun. 

Dinner is freshly prepared for you in camp & we can cater to most dietary needs. Presented piping hot on plates as its dished up. The evening is spent around the open, wood fire with a drink or walking along the beach in the moonlight which is particularly stunning on a full moon.

Breakfast on Sunday morning is a casual, laid-back affair, not too early & after a coffee/ tea. We'll enjoy a relaxed & informal meal on the beach overlooking the sea. Pack up your kayak ready to set off down the coast to Felixstowe Ferry, around two hours paddle, & finish the day with a snack & drink at the local cafe before setting off home. Or take the foot ferry across the estuary to The Ferryman pub for a hearty, hot meal & a drink before setting off for home. 

A great adventure without the hassle, cost & worry of tents, sleeping bags, stoves & food! No experience needed just a good positive attitude to the outdoors. Over sixteen years only.

NOMAD Sea Kayaking tries to complete a beach clean (conditions permitting) of any beach we land on during your event, usually at the end of the second day before we launch. Please bring along a strong bin bag and gloves (if they need them) to help us with the cleanup. This isn't compulsory but we all use the environment & we want to take care of it for future visitors & the marine wildlife that lives there. After all, this is our coastline.

Sixteen and over.

A fantastic trip with wonderful company & terrific paddling. Above all the Nomad Team gave me encouragement & confidence to challenge my abilities - an amazing feeling of accomplishment & a great life lesson.

You did a great job of paddling through bumpy sea conditions on the Saturday Dara & rewarded with perfect sea conditions on the Sunday. Well done!
