    Packing List

    All you need for your paddling adventure

    Let’s get ready!

    On our expedition tours (nomadic-style) we will be packing everything into our kayaks each day in order to travel to our next campsite. While space is limited, please ensure you bring enough to stay warm and dry. Shoes can generally be packed loose in the kayak. All participants will also pack some of the group gear and food in their kayak. Don’t worry, it always looks like an impossible mountain of stuff to fit in the kayaks, but with some perseverance and coaching from your guides we always manage to fit everything.

    On our basecamp tours we are transported to our wilderness base camp by water taxis which are equipped to carry all of our passengers,  plenty of gear and is specially designed for safety and comfort. We are not restricted in the amount of luggage and gear we can bring. Although your gear will be stored in the cabin of the boat, you may want to waterproof some items, in the unlikely event that it may get wet while being transferring to and from boat.

    Below you can find a packing list for both, expedition and basecamp tours. The lists of suggested items should keep you a happy camper! 🙂

    You will also find a list of items that we provide for your tour. If you have your own gear (kayaks, paddling/camping equipment) and would prefer to use, please let us know beforehand so that we can make sure it is suitable and meets safety requirements. 

    If you have any other questions about the list, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

    Temperatures

    Please note that our summer temperatures from July until September are generally quite comfortable with temperatures from 18-30 degrees Celsius / 70-85 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s not uncommon to find mid day summers hot enough to want to cool off in the ocean! June and later September will have cooler temperatures, and at any time of the year we can have rain & wind, with temperatures occasionally as low as 13 C / 55 F. So, we say it is best to come prepared for any type of weather.
