Sea kayaking north wales with Coastal Spirit.

Four days sea kayaking along the Anglesey coast with 9 people from Switzerland, a super high pressure and Swiss chocolate, WOW!

Last year Beat, undertook his 4 star leader training with Olly Sanders and my self and expressed interested in bring a group out. 14 months later he was back with his wife Michaela and 7 others, plus some Swiss chocolate!

Puffin island provided a super introduction to tidal flow, which was new to a couple of them, and a stunning display from the seals. Day 2, was on the Cymyran Strait, 4 Mile Bridge to Rhoscolyn, with loads of wading sea birds, some super gentle eddies and a real Wow, as it flowed into the sea and the view of the Llyn Peninsular. Day 3 was Point Lynas to Ynis Dulas and then back so we could experience an introduction to a tide race.
This led us nicely into our final day and the Stacks. With wind against tide North Stack was a little lively, and as predicted the wind kindly dropped as we explored and paddled along the coast, landing at Abraham's bosom for some lunch and a gentle paddle around to Porth Dafarch. A super 4 days with great company and stunning weather.
