Sea Kayaking Lanzarote, April 1st-5th by Elle Jackson

  • by

After picking up a flyer in NWK back in December seven members of LCC decided to book a paddling trip to Lanzarote. We were picked up from our hotel by Juan Valencia and headed off to catch the ferry from Orzola to the island of La Graciosa. The plan was to paddle from the port to Playa Montana Amarilla.

However, the windy conditions and big swell prevented us from paddling around the headland and so we landed at Playa La Francesca. After chilling out on the beach for a while and watching some surfers on a huge wave we paddled back to the port in some fairly challenging conditions.

Day 2 was a more serene affair. Staying closer to our base in Playa Blanca we paddled the area around Papagayo, stopping for lunch and some snorkelling.

Juan was a fantastic guide and a pleasure to paddle with. All the equipment was excellent (NDK and P&H kayaks, Celtic paddles etc), as was lunch prepared by Juan! We would recommend other LCC members check out Sea Kayaking Lanzarote.

Paddlers: Elle Jackson, Steve Bond, Ann Hopper, Don Brooks, Gerard, Mike & Rosie Jackson.
