About the tour
The high speed vessel will take us to the basecamp at Kalvøy, where we have our kayaks.
This 30 minutes ferry ride is quite spectacular. The boat moors at several islands before ending up at Kalvøy, which is the final destination and start point for the kayak-tour.
When arriving at Kalvøy, there will be a 10 minute walk on a gravel road to the dressing room. At Kalvøy Maritime Park there are toilet facilities. Before we enter the kayaks, you will change in to drysuits, neoprene shoes and life jackets.
From the bay at Kalvøy we go south, or north, it depends on the wind. We are on the west-coast of Norway where the winds change frequently.
The English speaking guide and instructor will take you trough the wonderful landscape of small islands and reef, staying close to land. The length of the journey will be adjusted to your skill set.
Like all of our kayak-trips, wildlife is abundant. A lot of birds, and if we are lucky, we can see seal and mink.
Close to land, under your kayak, you can explore the seabed. If you paddle very quiet, you might see some fish and crabs.
The guide will meet you outside the waiting room at the Tau ferry pier on the day you have booked.
The address to the pier is Fiskepiren and is located just a 10 minute walk from the main pier for the cruise ships.
While kayaking, you will wear a drysuit, neoprene shoes and life jackets. Use outdoors clothes in this activity.
