Who are NOMAD Sea Kayaking?
We are a passionate, family-owned and run, not-for-profit, outdoor adventure company and we are now in our 16th year of trading. We are a small, tight-knit team of five.
What do we do?
Having run adventures & courses through many financial peaks & troughs over the last few years we have always remained strong as a business; offering adventure & escapes in the great outdoors, helping guests to be fit & healthy & encouraging their engagement in their surrounding environment whilst having the pleasure of bringing a new sport or hobby to so many people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
Why are we Crowdfunding?
We are determined to continue to share our passion for the outdoors well after we see the back of COVID-19, but we need your help and support to do that.
Our small team of Coaches and Guides can’t wait to get back on the water paddling their guests out to secret seal colonies, exploring estuaries at sunset or kayaking a group to a remote beach to wild camp overnight before setting back after a hearty breakfast on the beach.
What are we asking you to do?
Please support us by buying a gift voucher, a course, adventure experience or a new kayak. Our promise to you is that when this challenging and difficult time is over, we will give you an adventure to remember with our experienced Guides or a new skill from our amazing Coaches. You will enjoy the wonderful outdoors, feel the sun on your face and breathe in that fresh, sea air.
Only with your help will be able to continue doing what we love. We are the only provider on the east coast providing such adventures as well as world-class coaching, ensuring that our students are proficient and as safe as they can be when they head out on the water.
Help us keep our team together, our business ‘afloat’ and we promise to provide you with the escape or event that you so desperately need when we get through this challenging time together!
Thank you for reading this far! Would you like to hear what our students and guests say about us?
***** Richard - Seal Colony Trip. November 2019
“An absolutely fantastic trip. Very knowledgable guides who both know the area and their craft but also instil a sense of trust in the ecological impact of kayaking trips to visit seals. Safety and technique for kayaking were paramount; there was no glossing over the hard work of kayaking and that is to Nomad's credit. The payoff was that, whilst paddling away, no part of your mind is worrying, meandering or concerned... it's just you and waves...they take care of everything else. I would most definitely recommend them for a trip.”
***** Vicky - Discover Kayaking Trip. September 2018
”Another great trip out on the water with Nomad. Our instructors/Guides Becky and Kurt ensured the session was fun and safe for everyone. We had a mixed group of ages and experience, with some having never kayaked, but everyone was well looked after and encouraged along the way. We were blessed with stunning weather and the Orwell was very picturesque. If you’ve never kayaked before I’d strongly recommend giving one of these sessions a go - they’re fun, well organised and a great way to spend a few hours.”
***** Sandie - All-Inclusive Kayak and Wild Camp Weekend. May 2019
”The leaders were fantastic: personable, friendly, knowledgeable, experienced, kept us safe, supported the group to fix up camp, made it fun with a few challenges, showed us how to filter water, excellent learning experience (from putting up a tent to thinking about the change in weather, tides and how to keep safe and warm). The others in my group were lovely people and we all worked together and supported each other throughout the weekend. The whole weekend was an excellent learning curve for me regarding sea kayaking and keeping warm and safe. Awesome food and it was just so much fun!! I will definitely do this again.”
***** Lara - Introduction to Kayaking Course - Non-Tidal. April 2019
”Fantastic day never tried before was going to love or hate, I wasn't very good however Kurt and Becky were fab very encouraging getting out of the kayak to get my paddle strokes right, was concerned about capsizing exercise but was fine. Haven't laughed so much in ages and gave it my best shot really enjoyed myself and will try another adventure with them All I can say is cold!! Layers are the key put enough on till you can just do your coat up that's enough???? thanks guys”
