Encounters of the animal kind
Kayaking offers a truly unique animal encounter experience but, when you see a large shadow appearing underneath you, we think you’d be a little weird if you didn’t experience a little jolt of fear!
Nevertheless, don’t panic!! Stay cool, calm and collected and make no loud noises. Despite the size of some of the marine life found around the Isle of Man, none of them are particularly keen on loud noises and can scare easily causing them to make sudden movements, which is something you don’t want a large animal to do near you!
Never paddle directly towards an individual or a group of animals. After all, no one likes it when people come on too strong!
Just by following these two simple rules, you will ensure the animal’s safety and your own safety. So sit back, relax, be quiet and enjoy getting up close and personal with wildlife!
