An an increasingly popular variation of the sport, the passage from Hunstanton to Skegness, or vice versa, is a relatively new challenge for the more adventurous paddler.

Over 13 nautical miles in a direct line, open to the north east and with tides to consider, this is no pushover in a kayak.

For those considering it, consult the harbour authorities, especially for up-to-date information on commercial shipping movements. A crossing over a neap tide period would probably be best.

Hunstanton Kayaks also offer kayak hire and lessons.
