Details & Itinerary

Sea Kayak Holidays Wales

Two different skill levels to choose from:


Calm conditions (Level 2-3)

For those looking to explore the sights of Pembrokeshire at a more relaxed pace.

Each day we’ll find the best coastlines whilst staying relatively sheltered from weather conditions. Beautiful headlands and stunning features like Dinas Head and the Witch’s Cauldron are well within your grasp.

A wilder ride (Level 4-5)

Do you have a fair amount of experience in a sea kayak and are looking for bigger, longer Sea Kayak Holidays in Wales?

Offshore islands like the Bishops and Clerks. Tide races and overfalls like the infamous Bitches in Ramsey Sound. Committing day paddles like Strumble Head.

Weather permitting, we’ll show you as many of these iconic Pembrokeshire paddles as we can, and if the weather does come in, we still have plenty of fantastic sheltered coastlines to explore.

What you can expect:
  • An enjoyable few days of paddling in various stunning locations throughout Pembrokeshire. Your guide will discuss with you at the start of the holiday a rough plan for your time with us (weather dependent)
  • Mini-coaching sessions along the way to help make your experience more enjoyable, but with the main focus being on getting out on the water and enjoying the journey, scenery, and wildlife on offer.
  • We will always try to accommodate requests, maybe you have particular places you want to explore during your time with us? Or maybe you have specific skills or qualifications you are working on and would like to progress towards. Just let us know and we will ensure you get the best out of your time with us.
What you should bring:


  • If you are camping on-site with us be sure to bring your camping gear with you.

When to come?

Any time of year is a good time to visit Pembrokeshire for sea kayaking –

In spring our cliffs and shorelines are graced by numerous nesting sea birds.

Summer is generally warm and sunny. Autumn is fantastic with seals flocking to our rocky shores to give birth and rear their pups. In winter it’s cool and quiet.

With dry suits and drying facilities, we have all the gear you’ll need whatever the time of year and whatever the weather.



Free camping is available onsite. Available from Spring 2023 we will have brand new camping facilities with level pitches, a camp kitchen, showers and kit drying facilities.

With only a handful of pitches, the campsite is dedicated to the Academy and therefore small and quiet – it also has sports wonderful views inland to Wolf’s Rock and beyond.

For those wishing to stay in the ultimate comfort there is also a luxury holiday cottage available onsite, follow the link below to find out more:

Holmus Cottage

Of course, if neither of those options is right for you and you have your own transport, then you can choose from any of the fantastic accommodations on offer in Pembrokeshire. Just locate yourself somewhere not too far away from our base in Letterston and we will meet you at Sea Kayak Academy each morning.
