Paddle boards by Loch Duntelchaig

Meeting at Explore Highland office, after a short discussion we decide as a group where best to go paddling depending on the wind forcast. We issue a suitably sized personal buoyancy aid and paddle to everyone. After a safety briefing, we head out onto the water for a fun guided paddle. Coaching offered where required or asked for. Plenty opportunities to take some photos and selfies too.

We supply:

  • a Red Paddle Board
  • a personal buoyancy aid (PFD)if required and an adjustable paddle
  • a 30 litre dry bag for spare clothes etc
  • wetsuit if required
  • approx three hours on the water guided/coached adventure
  • tea/coffee/hot chocolate and biscuits/cake at tea break
  • copies of photos taken by your guide during the trip

What you need to bring: When paddling, you should expect to be splashed a little from boat spray and drips from the paddle. The weather can also change rapidly out on the lochs so its best to be prepared for the worst. Please bring suitable outdoor clothing to keep you warm for the four hour trip. We recommend bring along;

  • swim wear and a towle
  • a hat or cap to keep head warm
  • old footwear/trainers that you don't mind getting wet/splashed
