Sea Kayaking Around Mull
As one of the larger islands of the Inner Hebrides, kayaking around the island is definitely a challenge, but can be completed in one day by more experienced kayakers. Though the tides are less demanding than other Scottish waters, some of the stretches of isolated coastline on the west coast of the island can be exposed to some harsh weather conditions. Therefore, to ensure your safety, it is important to be aware of the conditions before heading out on your kayaking adventure. Despite this, there is so much to discover and explore around the island - it’s a dream destination for adventure seekers!
Among the remote and rugged coastlines, you will find unspoilt beaches, tranquil bays and intriguing sea lochs. Along with exploring the fascinating landscape of Mull, the surrounding scenery and wildlife is a spectacular addition to all sea kayak trips. The wild island of Mull offers a unique wildlife experience, where you can spot puffins flocking the western cliff edges or seals basking in the sunshine on the shores. The beautiful environment and local wildlife in and surrounding Mull draws many to the area and makes for an incredible sea kayaking experience.
Sea Kayaking Tours
Although there is a possibility for keen kayakers to take a kayak out to sea off and around Mull, for the more novice kayakers, it’s safer to go on one of the various sea kayaking tours and kayak trips that are available around the island. For the less experienced, this is a great way to be guided safely around coastal areas of the island and surrounding isles, like Iona and Staffa. There are many kayaking excursions from Craignure to Tobermory, and around to Fidden with outlooks across to Iona where you can experience the stunning sunset over its white sandy beaches. Mull and Iona are fantastic islands for an exciting paddling experience with the opportunity to witness some of
Scotland’s most spectacular scenery and unique wildlife. These trips can be tailored for
beginners or intermediate paddlers and guided trips are usually over a three-day period. Experience sea kayaking at its best by learning skills from the experts while paddling in an unforgettable environment.
Staying on the Isle of Mull
