Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park was established in 1952, and is the only coastal park in the United Kingdom. Designated primarily due to its spectacular coastline, from the Limestone cliffs of the South to the rugged volcanic islands and cliffs of the west it would appear that Pembrokeshire was custom made for exploration by Sea Kayak.
Sea Kayak Guides is based on the St Davids Peninsula in the wild west of Wales where the Atlantic Ocean meets a truly unique coastline littered with Islands and picturesque bays. At this merging point between the Irish Sea and the Atlantic Ocean Pembrokeshire boasts some world class conditions. We have the long period ground-swells associated with Cornwall and the strong tidal flows creating tide races similar to Angelsey. When you combine the two together the result is a variety of truly exceptional conditions, such as the Bitches of Ramsey Sound and the infamous Jack sound at Skomer, Pembrokeshire really is the sea kayaker’s dream.
With this in mind, it’s not all about riding the big tide races. Due to the Pembrokeshire’s unique geomorphology boasting high cliffs with varied aspects; where one coastline is subject to prevailing weather, another stretch is offered protection. Fortunately, we can always find stretches of coast to suit whatever we are looking for.
