About this activity
Explore the beauty and abundant wildlife of this area of marine conservation. You’ll develop a whole raft of skills and knowledge including how to paddle the super SUP, how to forage for wood and the best techniques for building an open fire with limited resources.
Learn how to Super SUP and forage from our expert instructors
We’ll kit you up in wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets. We want you to have fun but we’re safety conscious too so you’ll get a full brief before you paddle out. Learn essential paddle techniques and how to navigate the super SUP on the river - a different experience from the ocean waves.
After launching from the river bank, you’ll paddle as a group on the same super SUP using combined skills to cross the river efficiently. Arriving at Penpol Creek, you’ll moor up the super SUP at the site of an old kiln. Take a ride on the rope swing in the woods and enjoy some races and games with your group. Will you be the ultimate winner?
Bushcraft survival skills
Could you survive in the woods with only the land to live off? We’ll put your skills to the test! With the trees as your only form of shelter, our expert instructors will show you how to source materials to build a fire, and what to look for if the wood you source is wet. You’ll locate a suitable spot to build the fire and use kindling to get the fire roaring. Your instructor will show you how to use a knife to split the kindling and fire starting techniques to start the fire.
Sitting around the fire, you’ll toast marshmallows and take a final ride on the rope swing before heading back to the super SUP. Enjoy some more games and challenges like ‘last man standing’ and a capsize survivor battle before heading back to the start point of your tour.
