Isles of Scilly – September 2024

We are planning a trip to the Scilly Isles for the beginning of September 2024 for one week.

The plan is to catch the Scillonian ferry to St Marys and then cross to St Martins for a campsite that is immediately adjacent to the beach and then switch camp to St Agnus half way through to explore the western side of the Scillies. All camping kit etc. will therefore need to fit in your kayak. The plan is to make the trips relatively easy and ideally suited to those who have attended the intermediate sea kayaking course. The environment provides sheltered areas within the archipelago and potentially more lively conditions around the outside of the islands giving plenty of options whatever the conditions. The emphasis will be more on relaxed enjoyment rather, than extended distances and tidal races, with anticipated trips being 8-10 miles per day with time to explore on land. Numbers will be limited depending on the number of leaders attending.

Provisional dates are 3rd-11th September 2024 and the approximate cost is anticipated to be around £450.00 pp. including ferry, parking, camping and kayak transport.
