Sea Kayaking Oban trips


Come and explore some of Scotland's best sea kayaking locations. All equipment included, no experience necessary.


Day or multi day trips and coaching sessions tailored just for you.

Whether you are after a family taster session, a scenic day trip or an improver’s skills session it's all possible and the best locations are right on our doorstep.

The coastline around Oban is so varied that it offers us sheltered lochs, exposed coastlines, numerous islands and complex tidal flows, not forgetting a variety of marine life and wildlife. Every day is tailored around the experience, needs and goals of my clients.

All the equipment you need to enjoy your experience safely is provided, I can also supply a list of useful items to bring along. Days are tailored for you, so you won't find yourself in a group with others unless that's what you would like. I believe in keeping group sizes fairly small (max. 6) so that everyone can get the most out of their experience.

Leonie Mead - Owner - Sea Kayak Instructor

Leonie is a sea kayaking instructor based in Oban, on the West Cost of Scotland. As well as running her own business she also works as freelance instructor for other companies.

I first started paddling about 15 years ago and have paddled the coastline around Oban and the islands extensively. I've also paddled further afield both in New Zealand and America.

I love exploring and being on the sea. The peace and tranquility it offers just can't be matched. Scotland's ever changing weather provides the most varied conditions and I'll never tire of its coastline. I love being able to share my passion with others, enabling them to enjoy our stunning waters safely by providing the skills and confidence they need.

I am a qualified sea kayak coach currently holding the BCU's UKCC Level 2 Coach and 4 Star Leader awards.

Went not leading groups or coaching, I can usually be found on the sea! Either kayaking for fun, exploring further afield on our sailing boat 'Seal' or volunteering as a crew member for Oban's RNLI Lifeboat. I also run my own vinyl graphic design business Art & Sea.

Thanks for reading,

Leonie x
