Och Aye Canoe offer guided kayaking and SUP trips as well as lessons suitable for beginners all over Fife and Tayside, whether you want to explore Loch Leven, take a trip down the river, or even go sea kayaking!

Their kayaks are sit-on kayaks rather than sit-in (the most common type) this type of kayak allows for more flexibility and comfort as well as being generally safer for beginners – they are virtually unsinkable and if you do capsize you will simple fall off into the water and won’t find yourself stuck. These sit-on kayaks are also great for people with large body types, long legs, or limited flexibility, as well as any kids or adults who are nervous about trying kayaking for the first time.

Och Aye Canoe is a small, woman-owned business who are committed to respecting the natural environment and animals who live there as qualified Leave No Trace trainers.
