I booked this for myself and my fiance over a month in advance to make sure we got the time and date we wanted. It's £40 for one person for 3 hours, which may seem like a lot, but hiring kayaks from the beach costs more and doesn't have the luxury of a tour guide! Life jackets are supplied, so... More

our weather was not the finest, but our instructor and guide Jim provided much entertainment and enthusiasm. Brilliant activity and would definitely recommend the company for kayaking.

Despite the chilly weather we had a fantastic day kayaking around the Jurassic Coast. The session was well-organised and ran smoothly and the instructors were first rate! Fun, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, they turned a great day into a brilliant one! I will definitely use Dorset Kayaking again!!

What a lovely Sunday that was! On a weekend visit to Swanage we were determined to get some kind of an adventure in. Kayaking from Swanage pier seemed a good option. Am absolutely great experience, lovely staff and warm equipment, we felt safe and comfortable every second of our tour.
