Launching A Kayak At Filey – Country Park, Filey Dingy Club
Great parking (a couple of quid for all day), toilets, cafe, shop and camping/caravan site close at hand. Easy launch down steep boat ramp of about 100 metres (take a yak trolley) onto the sands of Filey bay.
This is an easy and sheltered launch site. At present there is no charge for launching a kayak here. On the fishing front there are Bass and flatties in Filey bay making nice safe paddling/fishing.
To the north its a two mile paddle to the end of Filey Brigg where the fishing can be much better with cod, pollock, bass, coalfish and wrasse all possible, but pick your tides/ weather VERY carefully, don’t paddle to the Brigg alone.
Kayak fishing at Filey Brigg is not a place for novices or without a guide. Paddling towards the south past the town centre there is good fishing around Hunmanby Gap but you do get more swell here so again be careful.
Coastguards are on hand surveying the bay during seasonal times. Follow signs for Filey Country Park, parking next to the kids play area opposite the shop, The ramp is directly opposite.
There is an annual kayak match held at this venue, you can read about it here.
