TT Adventures

 Katie & James are over on their bikes for the TT Races, and booked a sea kayak trip with us to view the Isle of Man from a different perspective, during their stay...
 ...and it seemed we delivered just that : )
 Setting off from Port Erin beach, around the bay, checking out the inlets and arches, then around Bradda Head and north to the old Copper mines, for a break.
 Returning back down the coast, finishing at the beach again, in time for an ice cream in the sun!
 Enjoy the rest of your stay, especially given the superb forecast throughout Race Week!
See you on the water soon : )

9 till 5... the office, which is sometimes off-island as well...
Spent a few days over in Anglesey, staying at Anglesey Outdoors Centre, and using SKUK kayaks from Nigel Dennis's hire fleet. It was an amazing few days...
Paddling with Tony, Tim, Gerry and Cookie, Adventure Club Intermediates - as it was their graduation into senior Club Members.
We literally got on the water at 9am and off again at 5pm, with some stunning paddling in between!
Taking in the crossing from Newry Beach to the Scerries and back, and the return trip round the Stacks as well, on day 1...
Thank you for a terrific weekend lads!

Dolphins... Laxey today! Sea Kayaking today was truly mind blowing! Peregrine falcons, wild goats, seals, oyster catcher's, Katia's special flapjack, to name but a few... 
the morning was stunning, and then over 60 dolphins off Maughold Head during the afternoon session adding to the existing wildlife and conditions... 
 and then a small pod came through Laxey bay as we were getting on the water for the evening paddle...
 One of those days when you can't take all the pictures, there are just to many ways to look : )
Thanks to everyone who shared in today's experiences!

ps. I believe the Intermediates clocked over 500 rolls this afternoon!
