The classroom goes outside in our awesome kayaking adventures around Newquay’s beautiful coastline. Designed especially for schools, they go big on action and even bigger on education. From mastering kayaking techniques and discovering secret caves to spotting and identifying wildlife, it’s a packed two-hours bursting with hands on learning experiences.
Kayaking tailored to you
As soon as you arrive at Newquay Activity Centre the fun begins. We’ll kick things off by getting everyone warmed up and full of beach safety knowhow, then it’s time to learn the basic kayaking strokes, ocean knowledge and equipment upskilling before hitting the coastline for an exhilarating exploration.
With a huge focus on safety we’ll paddle into dramatic caves, caverns and coves and bring history to life as we tell stories of Cornwall’s dramatic past. As heads fill with tales of smuggling, piracy and shipwrecks, there will be different paddle techniques to master and waves to negotiate, as well as games and challenges to up the fun factor. We’ll also keep eyes peeled for wildlife, identify birds and marine life and share tips on looking after the ocean.
An action-packed, eco adventure that will build confidence in the water, teach sea safety and give pupils a feel-fab boost.
