Meridian Kayak is committed to sustained environmental / ecotourism opportunities. Sea kayaking allows participants to take their memories, their photos and not leave any footprints...

Sea Kayaks.

With a wealth of expertise in paddlers requirements and sea kayak performance, we have put it all together in the design of our own sea kayaks.  The Meridian "Cygnet"  single seakayak is gaining popularity as a sea kayak capable of both estuary / protected waters and extended or advanced paddling conditions.  Its stability, tracking and acceleration have made it a popular choice in term of performance and style.

Instruction programs.

We believe that in addition to appropriate sea kayaking equipment and accessories, good sea kayak skills and technique are essential to get the most out of sea kayaking. Fitness and strength are no substitute for technique and attitude.
While safety equipment is an essential backup to coping with difficult situations, the correct application of skill will usually prevent the need to resort to its use.  Lets face it, the best safety gear is the gear you never need to use.

Our progressive instructional techniques concentrate on empowering students to develop confidence and good sea judgement above all. Energy efficient sea kayak techniques allow the paddler to relax and enjoy their surroundings without undue stress.
