    I don’t know the name of the outfit but there’s a company on the seafront in Oban itself. It always looks pretty cool when you see the kayakers paddling right into the harbour!!

    That will be these folk http://www.seakayakoban.com/

    Don’t know about their reputatiion but they always seem busy enough and are slap bank in the middle of town.

    Can anyone recommend a good company to take a couple of novices out on a sea kayak around the Oban area for half a morning or something.

    will need all the kit as well, so need more than just a guide.

    Any recommendations will be great

    deyydd’s link leads to another with courses including 2 day intro @ £80/day.
    I’m in.

    Seakayak oban i belive e is part of the national kayak school, great company with some awesome coach’s.

    the instructors/coaches are keen and confident paddlers that have paddled around the world excellent bunch. but i would say that as one of them is a very good friend of mine.

    This is the perfect opportunity for some pictures.

    It was the perfect opportunity to forget to pack a camera

    I’ve been out with both the above. tony, for me, was brilliant. seakayakoban I went out with two total beginners (mrs swiss being afraid of both water and boats and the other one just generally afraid) and they were equally brilliant.
