Sea Kayaking

The Real Adventure Company offers sea kayaking adventures for all ages and abilities – from a half day taster session as part of an adventure day, a casual full day of Coastal Exploration, or a multi-day sea kayaking adventure. We give you all the skills you need to get out and enjoy the stunning Pembrokeshire coastline.  You also have the option to mix it up and try some Sea Kayaking as part of a multi activity weekend.

If you have never kayaked before or are looking for a relaxing day out, Pembrokeshire offers an abundance of picturesque quiet harbours and sheltered bays with sea caves, secluded beaches and high cliffs to be explored. Enjoy some peace and tranquillity as you explore this world renowned coastal environment, famous for its geology, marine life and flora and fauna.

If you have paddled before or are looking for something a bit more adventurous, you can take in longer journeys along the coast, we can introduce you to the excitement of paddling around tidal areas and if there is a wave about, the rush of rock hopping your way along the coast.

On our multi-day courses we can push the envelope a bit more, as your skills develop we have the option of heading out to one of our off shore islands. Ramsey, Skomer and Caldey islands are all ripe for exploration with tidal races, deep sea caves and exceptional sea cliffs. These islands all host incredible amounts of marine life and sea birds.

Why choose Pembrokeshire for sea kayaking?

The Pembrokeshire coastline is world renowned as a sea kayaking paradise, with clean Atlantic ocean waters, the beauty and variety of the coastal scenery with fascinating features to be found under the high sea cliffs; waterfalls, sea caves and natural rock arches, and a variety of fun conditions in which to play, from bobbing between sea stacks, catching waves through rocky channels, chilling out in idyllic sheltered coves, to surfing onto secluded sandy beaches.

Kayaks are also the best means for observing the wildlife. You might find yourself kayaking amongst Atlantic grey seals that breed around the coast and off-shore islands, or porpoise and dolphins that live in the deeper waters of Cardigan Bay. The coast is awash with sea birds; kittiwakes, razorbills, choughs, shags and cormorants, also the impressive gannets who have their colony on Grassholm island.

What type of kayaks do we use?

At The Real Adventure Company we have a fleet of Triumph13 Sit On Tops, made in the UK by Perception Kayaks. These kayaks have been carefully chosen for their speed, stability and user comfort. As a company we made a decision to provide our customers with the equipment we would like to use ourselves. These boats are not like your everyday Sit On Top, they are slick Sea going kayaks, everyone that paddles them are pleasantly surprised as to how good they are. Every boat is fitted with a comfort back rest and thigh brace supports. This means they handle like a conventional Sea Kayak, with the freedom and versatility of a Sit On Top. The perfect boat for exploring our stunning coastline.

Where do we go?

Being based on the outskirts of St Davids gives us access to a huge array of choice, with north, south and west facing coastline on our doorstep. We have a passion for exploring and discovery, so we head out to the best bit of coastline available for the weather conditions on each day.

Because we provide a minibus to every group coupled with our flexible approach to each day, the whole of Pembrokeshire is open to us. Especially on our full day or casual full day adventures.


We spent a fantastic morning kayaking with Pete. From the very beginning he was excellent. He found out about our experience and talked through route options. The equipment and wetsuits etc are of great quality. Throughout the trip he provided great instruction and we learnt many new skills in kayaking. The scenery was breath taking. All in all, a fabulous trip, we will definitely go with the real adventure company for many trips in the future.
