Kayak Challenge, Scilly, Nick Arding

Take a sea kayak around the Isles of Scilly and experience stunning scenery and fascinating wildlife. Our highly experienced guides will make it a safe and unforgettable fundraising adventure.

About the challenge

Sea kayaking is an amazing way to travel. In a 17-ft-long boat, you’ll paddle through the water at a leisurely 4 knots, taking everything in. Crossing bays and rounding headlands, your kayak will allow you to explore caves, gullies and archways like no other craft can do. Sea birds and seals will join you as you become one with your breathtaking surroundings. And with no engine, the effect on the environment is minimal.
