Gracefully glide through clear seas to explore wild Cornwall using your own power. Kayaking is our most popular activity with many groups returning year after year to explore our venues. Learn about the local wildlife and natural history, as you view the coast from a completely different perspective. Depending on where you launch you may visit islands, go into caves, go through gaps, see seals and other wildlife and investigate the rugged coastline.
We have top quality sit-on-top kayaks that are very stable and suitable for all ability levels. You are provided with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet. You will need to bring swimwear, a towel, and old trainers or beach shoes.
Our fully qualified guides will run through safety procedures on the beach and explain basic paddling techniques. If you would like to take your skills further, have a look at our training courses.
