Our sit on top kayak adventures are a great way of exploring the coastline or the stunning Camel estuary. Once we have given you a safety briefing it’s time to hit the water. Before we set off we will make sure you are comfortable in the kayaks and have learnt the basic paddling strokes – you will then start exploring with your guide. We only use sit on top kayaks as these are very stable and easy to use for novice paddlers. There is no risk of entrapment should you capsize which is rare.
Our sessions are based around the high tide times so we can use the estuary in Padstow if the sea is too rough. Your meeting point will be confirmed at the time of booking but may change if sea conditions are not appropriate – We aim to confirm the meeting point the day before or on the day of your booking.
If the time states 0.00 this is due to the tide not being in our favour so if the sea is to rough we do not have the estuary as a back up. In this case we will contact you a few days prior to confirm the session time, so we can make the best of the sea conditions.
