Meet our team

Joe made our kayaking day really enjoyable with very helpful instruction and even a lovely coffee and biscuit on the rocks. We never felt rushed and a relaxing experience. This was all topped off surrounded by beautiful Islay scenery. Love to do it again.

We can’t thank Joe enough for giving us the best afternoon on the Kayaks. His knowledge of the area is excellent and his patience is never ending. It felt a privilege to get so close to the local wildlife whilst Joe ensured we respected their environment and didn’t cause any disturbance. We highly recommend Joe as a great tour guide and excellent Kayak instructor.

Our day of kayaking with Joe was absolutely the highlight of our "bucket list" trip to Scotland! As retired kayak coaches and guides, we did our research on opportunities to paddle on Islay. When we found Joe and Adventure Kayaking, we knew he was the "real deal". Amazing equipment- meeting at his house to get fitted with boats and kit- Wow! he has the best of the best! Granted, we had amazing weather that day but taking off from the beach by Bowmore Distillery, paddling with the seals, taking a tea/coffee break with biscuits, paddling through the rock gardens, seals, seals and more seals (maybe we just lucked out so don't want to over promise)! Joe is an amazing coach and guide. Making sure everyone is not only safe but learns from their experience. We've done other kayaking trips when on holiday but nothing that even comes close to the day we had with Joe. If you're thinking of paddling when on Islay (experienced or novice), think no more! Sign up with Joe and you won't regret it! We can't wait to come back and paddle with him again! Thank you Joe for an adventure of a lifetime!! And maybe my photos show how much we loved the seals!
