Whats the trip all About?

Our friendly and qualified instructors will meet you at Swanage Pier. You'll paddle along the Jurassic Coast and have the opportunity to see Old Harry Rocks from a truly unique perspective, which is something you can tick off your bucket list. We'll tuck into a BBQ, have some drinks on the beach and enjoy some good old fashion BBQ food. After all, who doesn’t love a good BBQ? 

What is Old Harrys Rock?

Old Harry Rocks is a Chalk headland formation located at Handfast Point, on the Isle of Purbeck. A UNESCO world heritage site, with the famous 'Old Harry' Sea Stack sat at its eastern most point. The history of the site is somewhat disputed. Some say the rocks were names after a local pirate, 'Harry Peye', but some say they actually get their name from a nickname for the Devil. However, one thing that's defiantly not disputed is that it is a awesome site to see....especially from the truly unique point of view of a Kayak!

What You've Said

We went kayaking with a fella named Chris. He was awesome and a great tour guide. Very patient with us and gave us plenty of photo opps (gotta do it for the gram y’all) but really let us appreciate the view.

If you’re looking for a great place to kayak and want a fab tour guide who is patient but also a great instructor we’d def recommend him and will be coming back.

Fantastic Kayaking trip Jordan was an excellent instructor made it all seem so simple and it was....highly recommended 5* Service

Such a fun time with Kelvin and Chris, these guys know their stuff! We had such a good time Kayaking around Old Harry Rocks and will definitely book with them again. Tip- Ask Kelvin to show off his roll in the kayak!
