Personalised, bespoke and unique… Our private kayaking tours are designed especially with you in mind. If you’re after the ultimate solo or couple adventure that perfectly fits your needs, look no further! Embark on a privately guided and fully enjoyable kayak tour with Newquay Activity Centre today.


From the comfort of our on-site heated changing rooms you will be kitted up with a Rip Curl wetsuit, buoyancy aid, helmet and paddle. Following an in-depth kit familiarisation talk from your instructor, you will move on to learn basic paddle techniques, emergency signals and water safety information before grabbing a kayak and heading down to the beach.


From here you will prepare yourself for adventure with a short warm-up prior to launching your kayak from a sheltered stretch of coastline. Your instructor will be on hand to help and guide you through the break, answering any questions and allowing you to put into practice your land-based learning.



As Tripadvisor’s number one provider of water sport activities in Newquay, our team are comprehensively trained to provide personalised adventures for all ages. Together, you’ll explore the secret coves and tidal inlets of our coastline whilst learning about Newquay’s dramatic history, wildlife and taking your cave exploration to a level that you’re comfortably challenged by.



Whether you’re an experienced water-person or total ocean newbie, our expert team are the best people to introduce you to the fun. We’ve used over 20 years worth of experience to develop exhilarating and adaptable routes encompassing coves and smugglers caves that hold secrets for all ages to discover.


Easily accessible, our HQ near Towan Beach is surrounded by parking and eatery options and we provide heated changing facilities as well as safe storage for your belongings.



Kayaking is the perfect way to explore our coastal habitats and, being in a private group, you can focus on the tidal zones that interest you the most! Our instructors will allow the tour to run at your own pace so you can really make the most of this exclusive ocean adventure.


Whether you want to book a surprise activity for your partner, or you fancy letting your son or daughter explore new and uncharted territory; our Private Kayak Tours are suitable for all.

With safety at the forefront of our lessons, we must advise that children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult when booking onto our Private Kayak Lesson & Tour.



We are super fortunate to operate many of our activities in the shelter of Towan beach. We choose the tide and weather times that deliver the very best conditions for kayak tours. However, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and sometimes she may have different plans for us. We always check the forecasted conditions but if the wind or swell picks up unexpectedly, we may need to change the time or location of your tour. Alternatively, we can move your booking onto a different activity, safe from unsuitable or dangerous kayak conditions. 


Over 95% of our tours go ahead unaffected by the weather but, in the unlikely event that this does happen, we have excellent back-up options for you to choose from. If we need to amend your kayak booking due to adverse weather, we will let you know in advance. (No need to call us). We appreciate your understanding.



Our purpose-designed centre, conveniently located near Towan beach, is your one-stop shop for ocean adventure activities in Newquay. We’re not in the business of just making a quick buck. When you book with Newquay Activity Centre, you get the care, attention, knowledge and feedback that you need. 


On site we have hot outdoor showers, heated changing rooms, lockers, separate male and female toilets and clothing storage. We also have a hire centre for all of your needs after your lesson. Extend your days fun and check out our hire equipment.
