2-hour river SUP lesson and tour
Ideal for hen parties or group fun
Celebratory prosecco included
Discover one of Newquay’s hidden gems
A slow paced alternative with a hint of exhilaration! Celebrate a birthday, hen party or anniversary in style with a leisurely river SUP tour, picnic and prosecco. Perfect for a tranquil experience with a splash of wow.
Discover the serenity of the River Gannel - a wildlife and heritage-rich haven away from the hustle and bustle of Newquay. Learn to SUP in this calming environment, leave your worries behind on the river bank and enjoy some chilled out time especially for you.
Soak in the stunning views
The River Gannel has a unique feel to it. The estuary meanders and sweeps its way out to sea separating Newquay from the nearby Crantock village. In the summer months, the estuary could be mistaken for the Mediteranean - it’s truly beautiful!
Paddling along the river, you’ll have opportunities to pause and soak in the beautiful scenery. Think tree-lined banks, peaceful lagoons and tiny coves, all teaming with river wildlife, flora and fauna. Your instructor will point out rare wading birds such as egrets, river fish including perch and mullet, and mammals (otters and voles) along your SUP tour.
SUP paddle with a glass of prosecco
The Gannel also has a rich heritage which your instructor will share with you. At Penpol Creek you’ll see evidence of a disused lime kiln and the moorings from a shipyard that traded until 1872. Paddle amongst the shrouded lagoon with its overhanging trees and soak in the seclusion.
Moor your SUP next to the lime kiln and follow your instructor into the even more secluded woods. Wander through the tree-lined path to the top of the hill and soak in the stunning panoramic estuary view. It’s time to chill out, rest and enjoy that well-earned glass of fizz!
Take a moment to be mindful and spend some quality time enjoying nature.
Or, if you’d like a glass of prosecco during your river cruise, just let us know!
Believe us when we tell you that they’re nothing short of stunning. The sun sets over the sea and casts incredible orange and pink hues in the sky over the Gannel estuary. It’s a jaw-dropping moment and if you’re lucky enough to witness it on your river SUP and prosecco tour, you’ll certainly get that added wow factor to finish your day!
