Slow pace seal spotting tour - 2.5  hrs kayaking

Looking into the big eyes of a seal makes most people feel excited or even blessed. Enjoy the silence, paddeling in slow pace while marveling at the pristine landscape along the Swedish west coast north of Gothenburg.

We launch the kayaks at a place close to a known seal hang-out. Seated in a sturdy kayak wearing a drysuit you will enjoy the winter kayaking experience even more.

As we may have to change location due to prevailing weather conditions you will receive a final notification about the exact meeting point as late ason the day prior to departure.

After a safety demonstration the guide will assist you in fitting the equipment.

When kayaks have been launched and everyone is seated you will have an introduction to basic paddle techniques.
As we approach the seal area it is important to whisper and move slowly. We aim at coming in with the wind and current from the right direction enabling us to glide through at a respectful distance.

After placing the kayaks on the rack we end the tour with some stretching, depbriefing and a smile.

Soft adventure

We have planned the tour so that previous experience of kayaking is not necessary. Safety, comfort and enjoyment are our guiding principles as we plan and implement our tours. In the winter months, the pace is even slower in order to avoid sweating and thus getting cold.

Dry suits

When making the booking we will ask about your length and shoe size in order to make reservations for a drysuit in approprate size.

You will receive a pdf with useful information about what to wear under the drysuit. Kayaking in temperatures down to minus 8-10 degrees (no wind) works fine with normal gear, even for beginners. This we know from our own experience.

 

Highlights

  • Comfortable drysuit is included with optional gloves and hood 
  • Stable sea-kayaks let you enjoy the ride
  • Certified guide
  • Good opportunities for seal spotting
  • Soft Adventure in slow pace = time to relax and enjoy
