A sea kayak is a kayak developed for the sport of paddling on open waters of lakes, bays, and the ocean. They trade off the extreme maneuverability of whitewater kayaks for cargo capacity, ease of straight-line paddling, and comfort for long journeys. Sea kayaks can accommodate paddlers together with room for camping gear, food, water, and other supplies.
Using two person sea kayaks suitable for all abilities, you can indulge in a relaxing tour watching wildlife and soaking up the scenery – Northern Ireland is a paddling paradise.
How about effortlessly gliding through the calm waters of Strangford Lough? This is one of our favourite locations for kayaking. Beginning at Portaferry or Whiterock, you could be rewarded with an abundance of marine creatures, astonishing scenery, uninhabited islands and beautiful wildlife before stopping overnight in Salt Island Bothy. You never know, you might even get a seal or porpoise popping up beside you!
With MTA you can decide on the type of Sea Kayaking adventure that suits you, whether you want to spend a day on one of the Canoe Trails or a weekend combining it with other activities – it’s your choice!
