What is the food like?

Given the remote nature of this trip, basic, ration-pack meals are provided, but you’ll get the opportunity to add fresh fish and sea-foraged ingredients for added flavour!

Vegetarian, pescatarian, gluten free and dairy free diets can be provided for, just let your host know in advance.

What is the accommodation like?

Wild Camp

On this wild experience, you'll be bivvying under the stars on a secluded beach accessible only by boat. A tarp shelter will be provided, but you will need to bring your own sleeping bag and roll mat. In the evening dinner will be cooked over an open campfire.

Day 1

Kayak, forage, fish and wild camp

Get kitted out and then after a safety briefing set off from the picturesque Porthclais harbour and kayak into Caer Bwdi Bay. Spend some time exploring caves, rock hopping, foraging, fishing and learning bushcraft skills, followed by lunch on the beach. Make camp on a remote beach that's accessible only from the water and cook the days catch over the fire.

Day 2

Coastal paddling

Prepare the campfire for breakfast and then hit the water once more. Paddle along Pembrokeshire’s stunning coastline, dropping in at hidden caves and wooded estuaries. Keep a watch out for the local marine life. After lunch at Pointz Castle Beach and a spot of body surfing, paddle the final stretch to Newgale Beach and if time allows, try riding your kayak along the beach break.

Please Note

All our adventures take place in wild places. Things can go wrong in wild places. Your perfectly planned itinerary may change a bit (or a lot) if the weather turns, someone gets hurt, or a volcano erupts. Usually though, changes make it all the better.
