Leisurely picnic including traditional Cornish pasties and drinks
Get back to nature with a slower paced activity
Explore local river wildlife, history, flora and fauna
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!
Discover the secrets of the River Gannel
On the banks of the river, you’ll get a safety brief from our friendly, expert instructors. They’ll guide you through effective paddling techniques so your group can glide along efficiently. As you arrive at Penpol Creek, the first point of interest along the route, soak in the atmosphere of this tranquil lagoon. It’s a haven for river wildlife, rare estuary birds and flora and fauna. Your instructor will point out rare species and explain about the Gannel’s rich heritage.
Enjoy a river picnic in Newquay
After mooring the super SUP at the site of an old lime kiln and shipyard, head into the woods and breathe in the sweeping estuary views at the top of the hill. There you’ll enjoy a well-earned rest and a bite to eat to fuel the rest of your adventure. We supply drinks and Cornish pasties, or similar, if you have dietary requirements.
Following a leisurely break, head back to your super SUP and chill out with a swim before returning to the tour’s start point. Along the way, soak in those estuary views which channel all the way out to sea at Crantock beach. And if you’ve timed things well, you could witness a spectacular, not-to-be-missed Gannel sunset!
