We are completely immersed in nature here on our peninsula in Studland on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, watching our heath, shoreline and woodland change throughout the seasons is a constant source of inspiration for us. We have designed our foraging and wild food adventures to get you close to nature and to let us guide you through what makes this area of Dorset so special and unique.

Just could not be improved! Dan was excellent, the session was well equipped, the memories will last forever. I've been coming to Dorset for holidays since I was five, this is the best time I have ever had. Thank you.
Absolutely loved our kayaking adventure, which was a first for our family. John was great, showing us sights as we went round and our boys loved looking in the rock pools. It is definitely the best way to get up close to Old Harry Rocks, we would highly recommend it, and can't wait to do it again.
What a fab trip! My daughter and I joined Dan on a 3 hour paddle along the shore, enjoying the scenery and bird life. Then we reached Old Harry Rocks and had a great time weaving around the arches, and pulling in to a cave. Dan is the perfect leader - cheerful, relaxed; his love of the sea and nature is infectious. And just as important, behind all this he is an absolute pro and puts safety first. His coaching approach is so subtle, it's like a mate giving you some tips. I will definitely book with Dan again, and bring more friends and family!
We had an amazing morning. Thanks especially for organising the seal, a fantastic experience we will never forget.

Night Sit on Top Kayaking in Studland bay | 3 hours | £70pp
Join us for a new night time adventure in Dorset. As dusk falls you will head off on your kayaks and leave the beach to the sound of Oystercatchers and waves breaking gently on the sand. As we kayak cross Studland bay darkness falls and your senses will come alive. The stars overhead keep us company as we paddle our way to Old Harry Rocks looming ahead out of the darkness.
After landing and a hot drink we will head back the way we came hopefully encountering some phosphorescence. This kayaking adventure is perfect for those who are comfortable on a sit on top kayak in daytime as well as for the more kayak savvy.
*Please note children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult, Min suggested age 16+.
Unless we tell you something else all of our night kayaking sessions run from our Hutquarters on Middle beach in Studland.
Please arrive at our base in the car park 10 minutes before your adventure begins to ensure a savvy start as we unfortunately we can’t hold the session if you are late
You will need to be ready in your swimwear for a swift change into wetsuits.
After a quick change you will make your way down to our beach hut down on the beach.
After a short safety briefing you will kayak out by moonlight to explore the majestic Old Harry Rocks. We hug the coastline and stay in mostly shallow water all the way. At Old Harry we enter deeper water and explore the cliffs and sea stacks further.
This trip is on double sea kayaks. We have some single kayaks reserved for groups booking as an odd number.
You will need to bring footwear (old trainers or aqua shoes do just the job)
You will need to wear your swimming cossie or shorts underneath our wetsuits. Make sure you bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a change of clothes, a towel and a water bottle to stay hydrated.
In winter you will need to wear a base layer under our wetsuit (manmade fabric as cotton will retain water). Hats and gloves are a good idea too, as well as a snug fleece and some warm socks for afterwards!
You will need to bring a headtorch.
£70pp (minimum age allowed is 16 years)
children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult
