We recommend the following level of skills in ocean kayaking for a tour on your own in Lysekil's archipelago, starting in Lysekil's Northern Harbour:

  •  Wind 3-5 m/s - at least one in your group has knowledge of ocean kayaking risk assesment and knows how to rescue a capsized companion
  • Wind 6-8 m/s - at least one in your group has previous knowledge of ocean (open water) kayaking risk assesment and knows how to rescue a capsized companion
  • Wind +8 m/s  - at least one in your group has extensive experience of ocean kayaking and risk assesment, experience in guiding less experienced paddlers and knows companion rescue. If neither of you has these skills, we kindly urge you to join a guided tour in stead.
