The Isle of Cumbrae offers superb opportunities to enjoy the fun of getting on the water safely and our range of FatYak Kayaks make it easy for all ages to enjoy this pleasure. On Your Bike is based right on the promenade with Kayaks ready to launch from the safe surroundings of the Newton Beach where you can be on the water in minutes. Fully certified life jackets are include in the hire and anyone can hire our Kayaks (terms & conditions apply which may be read before rental.
The FatYak kayak is easy to paddle, due to a combination of hull tracking channels and a built-in skeg – so they’re great for kids and anyone new to kayaking. Fatyak kayaks are the ultimate, family-friendly kayak, in fact they’re ideal for users of any age or ability. Fatyaks are ‘sit on top’ kayaks, so if the kayak capsizes you climb straight back on. No fuss, no tears…!
Plus the Fatyak’s molded seat area makes it comfy to sit in; and gives you plenty of legroom.
The Kayaks are a fantastic way to get up close to the sea life and it makes it possible to visit the little islands (Eileans) in the bay. Various seabirds including spectacular diving gannets and terns plus porpoises and dolphins often visit the areas around the Eileans.
From the beach it only takes a few minutes to paddle out to see the seals which make their home for most of the year on the two Eileans in the bay. They are great to watch from the Kayaks but if they think you are getting too close to them – just watch as they dive into the water and pop up to watch you from the safety of the sea.
Customer Steven said “I have never Kayaked before until visiting Millport. The closest i got was a canoe at Scouts many years ago. The Kayaks provided to us were well Maintained and very easy to use. It also gave us the opportunity to see Millport in a completely different way. We visited the Eileans (2 Islands in the bay at Newton Shore) and it was amazing. if you sat quietly you could see the seals going about their day and was an ideal opportunity to break the camera out. I loved every minuet of it and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Millport.”
