Our Story

Outdoor Explore Wales was launched in 2021. Based on superb experiences provided to our clients across Scotland since 2014, Outdoor Explore has decided to expand its operations. Spearheaded by Martin, one of our lead guides who calls South Wales his home, we are now offering stand up paddleboarding experiences in his local area.

As a marine biologist, Martin loves to share his knowledge with others. Experienced DofE Leader, hillwalker, canoe, and kayak guide, and a great coach in all these sports. Based in Wales on a daily basis, he loves returning to Scotland.

Explore Wales from the water’s perspective. Go stand-up paddleboarding!

Join a novice-friendly guided tour, book a coaching session, or hire kit from us. Outdoor Explore Wales offers small group adventures, family trips, and bespoke experiences. Half a day or full-day tuition is available at multiple locations across South Wales.

We simply love exploring, at Outdoor Explore, across Wales and Scotland.

“I joined the paddle group on my own and felt completely at ease, everyone was really friendly.”

We had a great trip on a night time paddle from Brynich Lock. Really loved being out at night, not something we would’ve done ourselves but was great fun and very relaxing with Martin, who was brilliant! Loved it.

Great trip! Had a relaxed paddle along the canal, with our expert guide helping us navigate the odd obstacle (including a flotilla of swans!) and providing some tips to improve our technique. Highly recommend whether a complete beginner or experienced SUPer 😊

We had a wonderful evening spent with a lovely group out on the SUP’s on the Brecon Canal. Martin was a fantastic guide and as a beginner he helped make the experience fun. Thank you
