Combining adventure, kayaking and the serenity of river life, why not explore one of Newquay’s hidden gems and enjoy a glass of bubbly along the way? As well as learning how to paddle your kayak, you’ll have opportunities to pause, discover the sights and sounds of the river, spot wildlife and learn about the heritage of this protected marine conservation zone.
Learn to river kayak
Our expert instructors are fully qualified and understand how to navigate kayaks on the river. Your lesson will begin with a full safety briefing on the river banks, followed by some land-based theory and techniques. You’ll learn how to paddle forwards and backwards, and make sweeping strokes to turn your kayak around.
Paddle and Prosecco
Paddle across the river to Penpol Creek - a secluded, peaceful lagoon where trees hang low over the calming water of the river. Learn about the old lime kiln and shipyard - an area rich with history and heritage.
Moor your kayak and wander into the woods up the hill and onto your picnic site. Enjoy a 20-minute rest to soak in the atmosphere, and the bubbles, while enjoying some quality time with your partner or friends. Connect back to nature and take in the stunning views of this site of special interest.
River wildlife spotting
On your way back up stream, look out for the rare estuary birds that inhabit the river such as cormorants, egrets and curlews. Take a dip and wild swim in the river before heading back to Newquay feeling chilled and refreshed.
