2-hour eco-focussed guided river super SUP lesson
Unique exhilarating yet serene experience
Discover river wildlife and rare estuary birds
Suitable for all ages and abilities
Exhilarating, maxed-out fun meets a serene experience! Our River Super SUP lesson and tour combines our supersized stand up paddle board with the calm waters of Newquay’s River Gannel. This unique activity offers the ideal platform for exploring the river wildlife coupled with a dose of adrenalin!
About this lesson
Gather your family and friends for 2 hours of supersized hilarity and adventures. Away from the crashing waves of Newquay’s beaches, the River Gannel is abundant with river wildlife, beautiful views and a tranquil atmosphere - a stand up paddle boarder’s dream location! It’s also a protected area of marine conservation.
But let’s not forget that dose of adrenalin! Holding up to 8 people, our giant Stand Up Paddle Board is all about teamwork! Can you all paddle together without falling in?
What you’ll learn
After kitting you up with wetsuits and buoyancy aids, we’ll run through safety procedures and teach you basic paddling and self rescue techniques. We’ll launch from the river bank and work as a team to navigate and explore this protected area of marine conservation.
You might opt for a more tranquil, fact-filled experience but if it’s adrenalin fun you’re looking for, we can do that too! We can throw in some games such as ‘last man standing’ and a ‘capsize race.’ Are you up to the challenge?
Ideal for eco and wildlife lovers
Explore the natural beauty and serenity of Penpol Creek - a peaceful lagoon shrouded by overhanging trees. From the platform of the super SUP, our instructors will point out rare estuary birds and river wildlife including egrets, cormorants and wimbrels. Gaze below the surface to spot crabs, perch and mullet - you may also spot otters and water voles.
Our friendly instructors really know their stuff. They’re clued up on all things eco and wildlife and love sharing their passion for one of Newquay’s most secluded spots.
Our reviews on Trip Advisor rank Newquay Activity Centre as number one for Cornwall activities and we’re proud double gold winners of the Cornish Tourism awards. Our Super SUP is unique to Newquay Activity Centre and will be an adventure to remember!
