Kayak Fishing, Kayak Sailing, Wild Cave Swimming, Wild Rock Pooling, Wild Camping, Rock Art, Bushcraft, Conservation and Mindful Kayaking are some of the activities you will experience with national and regional award winning adventure tour operator Sea Kayak Torbay.
When we think about it, what epitomises Torbay is the view from the sea. We are overwhelmed by the sheer beauty and grandeur of the beautiful place we live in – and the geological history of what makes Torbay the stupendous coastal adventure playground that it is. It’s something rarely seen by the average visitor, of course, but it’s getting up close and personal to the multitude of rocks, coves, caves and inlets making up the 20 miles and 22 beaches of Torbay’s coastline that brings it all to life. This is the foundation on which SKT is built: the sheer amazement at what Torbay’s coastline has to offer, our wish to share with everyone the excitement we feel every time we go out.
That needs to be done safely, of course, and that is where SKT’s expertise comes in. Kieran, a fully qualified and enthusiastic tour guide, provides the perfect environment to enjoy all this in a wide variety of packages ranging from a couple of hours’ paddle to a 2-day coastal tour, all suitable for either the beginner paddler or the more experienced one.
Whether it’s a family day out with a difference, an office away-day, team building exercise or simply a random collection of individuals brought together for an enjoyable potter around the coast, SKT is there to tailor each trip to the individual requirements of those taking part. And you don’t necessarily have to come to us we come to you because we are fully mobile and can provide a pick-up/drop-off service either at your hotel or beach of your choice. And we provide everything from the boats (including tandem-style kayaks) to Inuit-style clothing for cooler temperatures to keep you dry and comfortable (and food and drink as well on some of our packages).
Sea kayaking is an exhilarating experience for its own sake anyway, but when you add the extra dimension of learning about Torquay's cultural history, Victorian heritage and the Geopark along the way, get to explore the rocks, hear the story of how they were formed, draw up at a deserted beach, fillet and stone-cook any fish you may catch, and explore remote rock pools unvisited by the bucket-and-spade brigade, a day out with SKT is something that will stay with you long after you are dropped back at your hotel.
We pride ourselves on being a ‘leave no trace behind’ operation and seek to inculcate that mentality on everyone we meet, such is our commitment to maintaining our maritime environment. Not that we bang on about it – it’s just something that permeates everything we do at SKT. That, and enjoying our beautiful bay.
Oh, and toasting marshmallows as well ... goes down nicely after stone-cooked fish.
