2 Hour Old Harry Rocks adventures | family kayaking trips in Dorset

Old Harry Rocks is a beautiful and iconic sea kayaking destination, and the best way to explore this iconic landmark is from a sea Kayak. Our base on Middle beach in Studland bay is just a short paddle away. So join us and jump aboard the kayaks to explore Studland bay in Dorset before heading out to Old Harry Rocks. From here, like pirates have done before us, we'll explore the sea caves, arches and stacks of this iconic landmark by kayak.

From our hut we kit you out in all the essential sea kayaking equipment, wetsuits, buoyancy aids, cags and helmets and take you straight to the water where you will journey along the cliffs to paddle through arches, around the sea stacks and through the caves. On our full day sea kayaking excursions you will stop to take a break at one of the sheltered bays and continue your paddle round to swanage bay stopping for lunch and learning about the local flora and fauna as you go before turning back to see the white chalk cliffs of Old Harry Rocks one more time.

We have been running these old harry rocks trips for over 7 years now and every time is different and offers something new.  To paddle amongst these cliffs and get up close to the rock face and weave in and out of the arches is a truly unique and inspiring experience. These two hour kayaking trips are ideal for families who want to experience this kayak adventure in Dorset with younger children age 8+.

We also run these as half day trips for those who have older children over 12 or who want to explore further along the coastline and both the half day or two hour options can include snorkelling, foraging and fishing for additonal cost added on or a combination of all the above, for over 12s why not try our signature Kayak, Fish, Forage & Feast adventures as featured on ITV and Channel 4. We use either single closed cock pit kayaks on our sea kayaking excursions or double sit on top kayaks for the half day tours.  This adventure is the perfect introduction for those who have little or no experience of kayaking - as well as for the more kayak savvy.
