Sit on Top Kayak Hire

Explore Highland operate a fleet of Gemini Feelfree sit on top tandem kayaks. All our sit on top kayaks are great quality crafts with wheels in the keel (sport models), allowing easy moving & handling on land. Being tandem there are great for families or adults to cover distance and a small cargo area and capacity suitable for light over night adventures. Their width and low design rewards you with a super stable craft out on the water!

Sit on top kayaks are simple to paddle solo or tandem, extremely stable and a fun way of explore the lochs and shelter waters around the Scottish Highlands.

When out paddling under the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, you must take responsibility for your own actions on and off the water. We can help by providing you with our local knowledge, responsible access and safety information before you head off on your adventure.

As a responsible company, sit on top kayaks are only available to those with paddling and safety experience in the craft and intended environments. For those who have no experience or looking at venturing into unknown waters, a professional guiding service is available.

Alternatively Donald can offer a skills/safety training workshop for those wishing to hire sit on top kayaks without any experience.
