Kayak Fishing Tour
Kayaking adventure tailored to nature lovers
Stunning coastal exploration and marine wildlife discovery
Combines fun with new skills
Expert instructors and first-class equipment
Turn your kayak into a unique fishing platform in this fun and interactive activity that celebrates Newquay’s incredible marine life and will leave you feeling energised, accomplished and close to nature. This is your chance to try two awesome activities in one or to take your kayaking and fishing skills to the next level.
We’ve taken our legendary kayaking tours and given them an awesome fishing kick. From the adrenaline of exploring the Cornish coast to the serenity of dropping a fishing line and the thrill of getting a bite, our kayaking fishing tours bring Newquay’s coastline to life.
An epic kayak adventure
In a two-hour session, you’ll start out at our Towan beach HQ where we’ll kit you out and pair you up with a sit-on kayak and paddle. We’ll then run through fishing techniques and must-know safety info before taking to the water to get to grips with key paddle strokes. Now it’s time to head out into the bay and along the coast – let the adventure begin…
Depending on conditions on the day and group preferences we’ll either explore the Gazzle peninsula (a 2 km stretch of incredible coastline) or the beaches and harbour. Whatever route you take you can expect to find smugglers caves to paddle through, natural rapids to negotiate and hidden coves to explore. And as you glide along keep your eyes peeled because you’re guaranteed to encounter an array of marine wildlife – seals, seabirds and marine life…it’s all up for grabs and our passionate instructors will help you to identify it.
Drop a line
Our paddle along the coast will include a number of fishing hotspots – and when we say hotspots we really do mean hotspots. Cast your eye down from the kayak and it’s like a looking glass into an underwater world. Inaccessible by foot and by most boats, this is when being on a kayak goes supersonic.
Your instructor will be carrying all the fishing equipment and will set you up with a couple of fishing techniques to try; drop a line and wait for the fish to take the bait or attach the fishing line to your kayak and paddle along as it trawls behind you. Bass and mackerel are the catch of the day– it’s all there for the taking and you’re going to have lots of fun trying to catch it!
Small group sizes will provide close quarter tuition and you’ll learn how to reel your catch in, manage the fish and handle the hooks so no matter how experienced (or inexperienced) you are, an in-depth session pitched at your skill level is guaranteed.
Connect with nature
Fishing from a kayak is a peaceful way to fish. It’s calm, relaxing and about as close to the water as you could get. Combine this with instructors who are experts in marine wildlife and you’re going to step back on dry land with a deep and hands-on appreciation for nature.
We’re TripAdvisor’s number one outdoor activity provider, two-time gold winners of the Cornish Tourism awards and two-time silver winners of the South West Tourism Awards.
We’re mighty proud of our credentials but what sets us apart is our love for Newquay and the ocean. We’re fuelled by a passion that never waivers and get the ultimate buzz from sharing it with others. We know more than a thing or two about ensuring everyone has an absolute blast on the water and with a safety-first ethos, guarantee the highest standards of care.
