Adventurous Anglesey explorations – islands, tide races, headlands & rough water!
North Wales is renowned for its rough water kayaking, with a wealth of exciting dynamic water venues scattered around its dramatic tidal coastline. Celtic Sea Kayak Classics+ is the ideal choice for confident sea kayakers who wish to explore the best of these famous waters.
This guided sea kayaking adventure draws on our huge experience of the North Wales coastline. We have a deep knowledge of the offshore islands, tide races, headlands, surf zones and rock gardens of Anglesey and the LLŷn peninsula. Each day we’ll lead you on exciting sea kayak journeys, into the best dynamic conditions we can find.
Example Adventure Days
Holy Island: The far west coast of Anglesey offers three tide races in one day! Penrhyn Mawr, South Stack and North Stack – all can be combined into one action-packed day of fast flowing tides, surfable waves and awesome rock gardening. It’s a ‘must-repeat’ sea kayaking experience and a memorable rough water adventure.
Skerries: Out beyond the NW corner of Anglesey, the Skerries demand a challenging tidal crossing to access this rocky destination in the Irish Sea. The coastline is a tide race playground, with a range of dynamic water options. This is a fantastic adventure in an isolated and exposed corner of the North Wales coast.
Anglesey North Coast: Another ‘hidden gem’, the North Coast combines tide races and sea cliffs – all in a compact area overlooked by the crowds. The tide races at Bull Bay, Middle Mouse and Harry’s Rocks are fantastic playgrounds for the capable sea kayaker.
Bardsey Island: The infamous Bardsey Sound, with its sea cliffs, tide races and rocky islets, guards access to the remarkable offshore island of ‘Ynys Enlli’. This is a big blue-water day, with a stunning combination of sea conditions, coastal scenery and wildlife. We choose settled weather for this sea kayaking adventure.
Menai Strait: The unique and famous Swellies creates fast white water rapids with surfable waves, eddylines, and powerful water. It’s a fantastic place to ‘park and play’ in the historic Menai Strait. Newborough Beach offers great long-boat surfing in the right conditions, while Puffin Island promises yet more tide race action.
