Why stick to just one activity when you can do two? Aimed at families looking to take their together-time to the max, this supersized safari hits the spot at every level. Adrenaline, discovery, games, education…it’s got all that going on, plus more!

We’ll start out at our HQ just above Towan Beach to get you togged up, then it’s time for an energetic warm up before an in-depth ocean safety brief. After that it’s time for a practice run-through covering all the paddle strokes, kit and manoeuvres. Next up, let’s hit the water!


One, two, three…everybody scramble onto the super SUP and get paddling. Laugh-till-you-cry moments will come in by the bucket load while you work as a family to get your strokes in sync and head out around the bay towards the Gazzle. This beautiful 2km stretch of coastline is rich in both looks and character. It’s also home to an exciting array of nooks, crannies, caves and caverns. You’ll navigate the board around this rocky playground and hear tales of its smuggling and shipwrecking past.


The whole family will be in and out of the water as we turn the SUP into a dive board for a series of games and competitions. Who can make the biggest splash? Who’s going to be the last person standing? If past experience is anything to go by, it won’t be Mum and Dad; our youngest adventurers always seriously impress in this ‘King or Queen of the SUP’ activity.


Things slow down for our second activity. With snorkel masks on we descend into the underwater marine ecosystem below. As you explore this conservation area and protected seahorse breeding site, look out for fish, crabs, seals, starfish and lobsters.

There’s also the option to explore Cribbar Reef, a renowned big wave surfing spot in the winter months. More often than not though, it is a tranquil home to the rich array of reef loving wildlife. Just a stone’s throw from the Gazzle, there’s no better place to see Newquay’s rocky reef structure and incredible marine habitats.

Paddle closer into the headland and you’ll be in the cove of Little Fistral, just 200 metres along from the world famous Fistral Beach. Its rock pools and lagoons host an abundance of miniature sea life and with the iconic Headland Hotel overlooking the snorkel site, it’s a view like no other.


Under the guidance and tuition of some of the most qualified, experienced and insured instructors in the country, adventures with Newquay Activity Centre are all about practical learning and exploring our coastlines up close. With us, families of all ages are encouraged to push their boundaries while in the comfort of a safe and supportive environment.


While well known big wave surfers like Jamie O’Brien made the SUPsquatch or Monster SUP famous by catching huge waves in Hawaii, it was NAC who pioneered the craft for touring.

There was no such thing as a Super SUP tour, it was NAC’s brainchild. We even came up with the name Super SUP!

After launching the company in 1996, we have catered for over 200,000 guest experiences. It is guest feedback that helped us to create our Super SUP tours, Super SUP Coasteers, Super SUP snorkel tours and other bespoke experiences. We’re simply re creating what we have spent our lives doing on the Newquay coastline. Director Rob Barber shared his experiences of cave exploration, lagoon snorkelling and sluice ride paddling and the thousands of 5 star trip advisors have been the result.

Having pioneered the development of the Super SUP tour as an activity, and introducing it to the coastal activity market, we have now, using a hybrid of our coasteering and paddlesports training programmes successfully built a module which is delivered within our 3 month Outdoor Instructor Academy qualification.


We take huge pride in providing the best Super SUP tours and offering an amazing experience for our guests.  Don’t just take our word for it though, our reviews back this up!  We have over 3000 5 star Tripadvisor reviews and some amazing Google reviews…
