Sea Kayaking These long sleek boats are based on Inuit kayaks that are used in the seas around Greenland and the Arctic Circle. They move quickly through the water and are excellent for long journeys and expeditions. You can load the watertight compartments with all your kit for a weeks expedition, or just throw in a packed lunch to explore the lakes and lochs on a daily basis. They are a great way to explore the larger lakes, lochs and sea lochs.
