Seaweed kayaking tour

Join us for a full-day paddling in the Grebbestad archipelago where the finest seaweed grows in the salty, clear and healthy seawater.
During this guided day trip we paddle out and find seaweed both from the kayak and in the water snorkeling (if you want to). We talk about cooking, nutrients and harvest seasons, so you get fundamental knowledge to start harvesting and cooking seaweeds.
When it is spring you borrow a dry suit. No snorkling during spring due to the water temperature.
This event is a collaboration with Nautopp kayak center in Grebbestad.
