Police, RNLI and coastguard teams have been combing the Portsoy Harbour area after Dominic Jackson, 35, was reported missing on Sunday night.
Mr Jackson left his home at Laurencekirk on Friday evening to travel up the North East coast for a sea-kayaking trip.
Emergency services carried out air, land and sea searches at Portsoy Harbour and further along the coastline throughout the night and will continue on Monday, February 6.
Lifeboats from Banff, Portsoy, Buckie and Macduff, along with 12 Coastguard personnel and five police units have been involved in the search.
