Sea Kayaking

Pembrokeshire offers some of the best sea kayaking in the UK with endless options to paddle beautiful coastlines as well as the extensive calmer Cleddau estuary. For the adventurous there are islands, strong tides and Atlantic swell which combine with our frequent blustery conditions to make some very challenging conditions. Haverfordwest kayak club explore our whole area in a range of moderate and advanced sea paddling conditions. (Due to the strong tides all sea trips in Pembrokeshire require careful planning).
