History and heritage focus
The Gazzle is 2km of historic Atlantic coastline. Its crags and caverns once played host to tea plundering pirates, dramatic shipwrecks and witch hunts. Now they’re our playground for coasteering, super SUP and kayak tours , but their past is something to hear!
You’ll get kitted out in a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet before negotiating Newquay’s Gazzle coastline by sit-on-top Kayak. With one of our experienced, qualified kayaking leaders for a history rich adventure.
Kayaks provide a great perspective from which to see the dramatic sections of inaccessible coastline, its smugglers caves, natural rapids, craggy inlets and hidden coves. The tidal zone offers the chance to cruise at your own pace with our instructor always nearby to help you to up-skill your technique and navigate a route.
Our reviews on Trip Advisor rank Newquay Activity Centre as number one for Cornwall activities and we’re proud double golden winners of the Cornish Tourism awards.
