Sea kayaking is a fantastic way to explore the coast line, quietly and under your own steam. It's really easy to see the wildlife and to land in small coves or bays that are inaccessible any other way. It offers a relaxing holiday for those that love to explore. This course is run from UCPA Hyeres.
This is open for complete beginners to advanced level kayakers. However, the Mediterranean is not tidal nor does the area offer any extreme conditions that require highly skilled maneuvers (unless the winds are high) so those who have experienced the Bitches or Western Isles of Scotland may find the pace a bit too chilled!
Skills taught will allow you to journey further enabling the group to head off and explore nearby islands and coves.
