Kayaking and paddle boarding on the Isle of Mull have become ever more popular as visitors look to soak up the scenery and sea surrounding the island.
A peaceful paddle in a kayak delivers you to hard-to-reach coves, and perhaps even brings an encounter with a seal or two. Paddle boarding is also a fun choice, and a great way to watch the sunset from a sheltered bay.
Find out how you could enjoy kayaking and paddle boarding on the Isle of Mull, with options in the north, east and south west for you.
Paddle boarding in Tobermory Bay
Yachts and fishing boats are a familiar sight in Tobermory’s iconic harbour, as well as the odd inquisitive seal or two. But now you can take to the water in an entirely new way, by enjoying a paddle boarding experience.
Choose between a one to three hour hire period and soak up the views, scenery and sights of the island’s harbour town from the water with Tobermory Paddle Hire.
Paddle boarding and kayaking in Salen Bay
Based in picturesque Salen Bay on the island’s east coast, Salen Bay Hire offer single and double kayak hire as well as paddle boards. Every hire comes with a life jacket and paddle, so it’s just a wetsuit to pack with you.
Sheltered from the wind, this is a lovely spot to spend an hour or two paddling and exploring. Enjoy a unique view of the Salen shipwrecks, so often photographed from the road but rarely viewed from across the water.
Sailing and kayaking on the Ross of Mull
If you’re staying on the Ross of Mull, then you needn’t miss out on the action. In addition to the treasure trove of sheltered coves for wild swimming on Mull, you can take to the water in a sea kayak with Bendoran Watersports. Choose between a half or full day on the water with a guide, or hire a kayak or dingie if you have suitable experience.
