Family kayaking tour information
Kayaking can be enjoyed by everyone young and old alike
Modern and stable sit on top sea kayaks allow you to share a fantastic experience with the children. Play in amongst the marine life, rocky channels and explore the depths of caves. We tailor all tours to your family’s needs and aspirations. Spending time as a family while kayaking on holiday, surrounded by the calming atmosphere and beauty of the Pembrokeshire coast is an experience not to be missed!
We aim to stay dry (other than the odd drip of a paddle) but the kids do love to have a swim. Stay dry or get wet, it’s up to you!
Kayaking with young children
On a tandem (two people) kayak, children have the opportunity to reach areas of remote coastline that wouldn’t be possible under their own steam. They can assist with paddling the kayak or sit back and enjoy the ride into caves and secluded bays. Children love to jump into the sea and play on the kayaks. Thanks to our well fitting quality wetsuits and equipment your children can have fun while staying warm and safe.
- As you know, children’s energy levels can drop suddenly so bring snacks and drinks to avoid this.
- Water reflects 100% of sunlight. Sun protection is vital for everyone but in particular for young people. We suggest a high factor sun cream on all exposed skin.
Enjoy the views and marine life
Our kayak guides, with years of experience, are well acquainted with the Pembrokeshire marine life and the local history; knowledge which they are eager to share with you. Atlantic Grey Seals often enjoy watching and following our kayaks, but when the seals are not present our guides will help you spot the less obvious limpets, barnacles, spider crabs and anemones in the shallows. It is our experience that people can be just as fascinated exploring for crabs under rocks as they can be with a group of seals swimming around our kayaks.
What people are saying about our tours!
I started off being a little nervous of sea kayaking but within seconds of sitting atop the kayak all worries went away. We spent the rest of our 2 1/2 hours with smiles on our faces having the best time. I would highly recommend this and can't wait to go out again with Kayak King! If you are thinking of doing this - book it now, you won't regret it.
Had an amazing time with Libby as she took our family around the sea caves; saw a new species of dove, seals sleeping on lobster boxes and pseudo sea monster blowing steam from a cave. Absolutely amazing time. Can't wait to do it again!
Had a great trip this morning around the Fishguard bay and along the Pembrokeshire coast line. Ant was very relaxed, a good laugh and overall nice guy. Got very close to some seals swimming by our kayaks and spotted a couple of pups on a nearby shore. Highly recommend 😀
