Crossings: Isle of Man / Northern Ireland

Situated in the centre of the Irish Sea the Isle of Man is a perfect draw for many a sea kayaker. It's positioning means it can often be seen from many places on the surrounding mainland on a clear day. It also means that the tidal flows from both north and south meet around the island, requiring some good planning to make the trip. The island also provides fantastic coastline, demanding tide races and plenty of wildlife, including Basking Sharks.
In recent times this has become an increasingly popular crossing as paddlers use this route as a crossing to Northern Ireland as part of their UK Circumnavigation route.
