A note about non-paddling guests: Though this adventure is planned primarily for the sea kayaker we are fully aware that non-paddling partners hate to stay home and miss the fun. For non-paddlers a variety of unguided active pursuits are available around Oban and we can arrange for town excursions, ferry trips, coach tours and train adventures to fill the days while kayakers are on the sea.

*Airfare is not included. We’ll meet our group at the Glasgow, Scotland airport (GLA) on May 5 and have you back to the airport on May 12.  Information on specific times will be available after July 1.
