Isle of Skye Activities include Whitewave Activity Centre which is a wonderful activity centre on the Isle of Skye. Included in the activities are kayaking, windsurfing, and hillwalking. The kayaking skills training courses are designed for anyone from beginner up to expert, and follow the BCU 1-3 rating system. Beginner windsurfers are encouraged to sign up for an introductory class.

There is no need for a wet-suit, as they are provided at the activity centre. There is some great hillwalking in the area, and navigation courses are available for those not yet familiar. Other activities include canoeing, windsurfing, hillwalking, climbing, archery, and much more. If you’re coming to Skye for some kayaking, or other activities, be sure to call first to see what all activities are planned for the season, and make a reservation in advance.
