Imagine you are at the edge of the sea on a day when it is difficult to say where the land ends and the sea begins and where the sea ends and the sky begins. Sea kayaking lets you explore these and your own boundaries and broadens your horizons. Sea kayaking is the new mountaineering.

Darkness stole across the Isles of the Sea.
The entrance of the Cuan Sound can be a bit bouncy as the flood tide jets out into the Firth of Lorn...
... but it soon flattened off as paddled up the west coast of Seil.
The sun was setting in the SW as we approached the village of Ellenabeich.
As we drifted north with the now gentle tide we looked back to Scarba, Lunga, the Black Islands and the Garvellachs.
The sun dipped behind the Garvellachs and darkness stole across the Isles of the Sea. Our voyage amongst the islands and the tides that rush between them was over.
