When established in 2000, Skyak Adventures was one of the very few companies in Scotland and the UK specialising only in sea kayaking.

Skyak’s highly trained team is led by internationally-renowned Gordon Brown – author, all-around kayak adventurer and one of the most respected coaches in sea kayaking. He has trained, tutored and/or assessed many of the sea kayaking coaches in the UK. Gordon has written the definitive book on sea kayaking — entitled Sea KayakClick here for a preview. His Sea Kayak DVDs are both educational and entertaining. Click here for trailers.

Our Philosophy

Gordon believes that everyone has the potential to achieve more and that a creative and supportive environment can lay the foundations for the greatest advances in personal development. Gordon values the importance of taking time to reflect and learn from the experience, something we could always do more of and that some of his most rewarding experiences are when helping someone else to achieve their potential.

Our team members are chosen because they share this belief. Our coaches are all at least BCU Level 4 or equivalent UKCC sea kayak coaches who live for their time on the water with you. Learn, develop and improve with us in a safe enjoyable atmosphere in the stunning location of Skye.
