Flamborough Head is aneight mile promontorybetweenFiley and Bridlington and is one of the great gems of the Yorkshire Coast.

The section of coast line around Flamborough Head provides some of the most spectacular canoeing on the north-east coast, with vertical chalk cliffs eroded to form natural arches and sea caves. The best time to paddle this coast is at high water as you can get in close to the cliffs as long as there is no swell. There are some amazing sea caves, some of which are so deep that a torch is required to fully explore them.

Sea kayaking is for people with a reasonable level of experience. The skills required are not simply those of paddling the boat; you also need to understand tides, tidal streams, and the interaction between tidal streams and the weather.
