Our story

Natalie and Michal are a wife and husband team who share  passion for outdoors and sport activities such as skiing, climbing, cycling, and kayaking.

They were introduced to the wonders of sea kayaking in August 2009 while on holidays in the Isles of Scilly. During the same week Michal also found out that it is possible to paddle around Britain. During the Spring and Summer 2012 Natalie and Michal circumnavigated Britain launching from their home in London. Since then, they haven’t looked back.

Natalie and Michal can be seen coaching at various locations on the British coast, at different paddling festivals in the UK or abroad.

If you would like to paddle in this unique environment, contact us, we will be more than happy to share this with you.
