We have teamed up with local kayaking and canoeing experts Perth City Tours to deliver this new tour, which takes place on a sheltered section of the River Tay, close to Perth. Rather than canoes we actually use sea kayaks which are very stable and easy to use.
This is an ideal way to get close to wildlife with minimal disturbance and we usually see a variety of bird life as well as the local beaver lodge, beaver trails, evidence of feeding and the beavers themselves (and although we can never guarantee wildlife sightings, we see the beavers on around 60% of our kayak safaris). The best time to see the beavers is in the evening but we can run the tour at any time. The Beaver Safari by Kayak includes kayaking instruction, your kayak, buoyancy aid, guiding by your wildlife guide and a wee dram at the end!
Key species: European beaver, Kingfisher, Osprey, Sand martin, Heron, Sandpiper.
