Isle of Barra Surf and Coastal Adventures is based on the beautiful Isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides. Lying on the very fringe of Europe, the Outer Hebrides are amongst the most beautiful islands in the world. This string of islands offers fantastic scenery and wildlife, and make for a stunning adventure destination. Characterised by beautiful beaches, turquoise sea, wild rocky cliffs, and sheltered lagoons it is a unique watersports paradise. Come and join us for an unforgettable adventure on one of our day trips - whether snorkelling with the local seal population, coasteering around the rugged headlands and beaches, joining our qualified surf instructors in learning to ride the waves, or exploring the beauty of the coast and wildlife from the seat of a sea kayak or sit-on-top.

SO MUCH FUN! It was our first time coasteering and were a little bit scared to begin with but the guides were fantastic and we enjoyed it so much. Can't wait to do it again! 5/5

My friend Colin and I were first time Kayakers under instruction from Ben. We were staying in the hostel next door to the surf school and saw Ben around and he is the sort of guy that inspires confidence. So after some helpful do’s and don’ts we were ready to push off. Me being supremely confident immediately capsized after completely ignoring all Bens wise words. No harm done though and I was still warm thanks to the drysuits provided. So back in the kayak for a wonderful three hour trip with lots to see including some curious seals. Unfortunately I could not see too much as I had lost my glasses to somewhere on the sea bed when I went for the unplanned swim. After we got back to the jetty with huge smiles on our faces Ben got his snorkelling gear and went to see if he could retrieve my glasses remembering where I gone in. I was grateful for the effort but had resigned myself to being half blind for the rest of our trip. However Ben had other ideas and ten minutes later after a few dives ta da!!! Spectacles recovered!!! So this is a public thank you Ben for an amazing experience and restoring my sight. I should also say Barra is a small place and we did bump into Ben on our travels and you won’t meet a nicer guy. So if you are reading this never having kayaked before and are hesitant then my advice would be go for it, your in the very best hands for a memory you will never forget. 5/5
The surf lessons were spot on, the kids loved it! 5/5
