Private Sea Kayak Tours & Coaching

Paddle at your pace on a private kayak tour.

Private kayak tours are ideal for anyone wanting a 1:1 trip to get coaching or paddle exclusively with friends and family.

Discover another world as you explore Jersey’s stunning coastline by kayak on a 2½ or 5-hour private guided kayak tour.

Select user-friendly single or tandem sit-on-top kayaks (sit inside, and high-performance surf ski sea kayaks are available if requested in advance).

Our kayak staff are Paddle UK (British Canoeing) trained. We are all Visit Jersey-trained guides and Jersey residents, so we’ll give you a local “insider” perspective of our beautiful island home.

All equipment (including wet suits) supplied.

Private trips can operate from most locations, providing the weather forecast, swell, and tides are okay.

Private Kayak Tour Itinerary

The meeting point is confirmed the evening before by SMS text once we have checked the weather forecast. If you have requested a location and conditions are unsuitable, we’ll suggest another trip to rebook or get a full refund.

Depending on your experience, you’ll spend about 15-20 minutes changing into kayaking gear and getting a safety briefing from our trained Paddle UK (British Canoeing) staff.

After introducing some basic strokes to help handle the kayak more efficiently, we will explore the coastline for around 2¼ hours.

This is your private trip; we can be flexible and build in time for a swim, picnic, or coastal exploration.

Remember, going from a requested location may not be possible due to the wind and swell forecasts. For example, visiting caves needs very calm conditions and light winds.

Who are our Private Kayak Tours suitable for?

Our private kayak tours are great for adults and families who want to explore Jersey’s coastline, observe wildlife, and enjoy being in the outdoors or on the sea.

Private kayak tours are ideal for more experienced kayakers who prefer not to kayak with novices.

People who worry they might hold a group back, are unsure about how they will get on, are disabled, want more time to see how things work out, or lack water confidence will find a private class a good option.

Our expert staff and user-friendly sit-on-top (or sit-inside kayaks for the more experienced) will give you the confidence to have fun afloat as you explore the coastline.

Sit-on-top sea kayaks are very stable. If you push your limits and take a swim, you can easily get back on board. Unlike sit-inside kayaks, there is no need to worry about capsize drills and “wet exits.”

Please let us know when you book if you want to use sit-inside or high-performance sea kayaks. To use a sit-inside kayak, you must have previously done a wet exit and assisted re-entry.

Private Kayak Tour Prices

2½ hour private class. Private tour for up to three people £165.50. For four or more, add £48.50 per adult. Children (5-16yrs): £35.50 each.

5-hour private trip. £264 for up to two adults. For three or more, add £132 per person.

Note. Our 5-hour tours give you lots of time to explore the wonderful coastline of Jersey with our expert guides. However, unless you have previous kayaking experience, we have found that some paddlers can feel quite tired by the end of the trip. An option is to consider booking two 2½ hour tours on different dates.

Note. Our daily tours and sunset trips have the option to “book entire tour (private event)”, provided no one has already booked a place.

Email or call +44 (0)7797853033 to arrange your private trip.

When booking, it is helpful to let us know whether you’d like a kayak tour, skills development or something special.
