Explore one of Newquay’s most secluded spots
If you’re looking for a celebration with a difference, try our new river super SUP experience with a sophisticated twist! Ideal for birthdays, celebrations, stag or hen parties, this unique adventure combines serenity and adrenalin with an added wow factor!
Explore the quiet haven of the River Gannel estuary whilst enjoying the thrill of one of our most popular activities - the super SUP! Think opportunities for wildlife spotting with games thrown in and a glass of bubbles. It’s the best of both worlds!
Chill out and enjoy the serenity of river life from our giant super SUP. Learn basic paddling techniques on dry land before launching the super SUP into the calming waters of the river. Rest assured - you’ll get a full safety brief and expert instruction before you hit the water. You’ll learn how to navigate the super SUP as a group which is a lot easier than negotiating it on the ocean waves. Plus, you’ll still learn plenty of skills.
What you’ll discover
Leaving the banks of the river behind, the tranquility of the estuary gives ample opportunity to pause as your instructor points out river habitat. With time to breathe and soak in the views, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of fizz while cruising along. We’ll make your river super SUP tour as chilled or as fun-filled to suit your group’s needs.
Games and challenges
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?
Super SUP and Prosecco
Your first stop will be Penpol Creek - the most secluded and sheltered stop on the river. It’s peaceful lagoon is abundant with wildlife including otters, crabs and rare estuary birds including egrets and cormorants. You’ll paddle the super SUP under the overhanging trees which create an oasis of calm in this beautiful spot.
Your group will moor up at the old lime kiln and shipyard mooring where a shipyard existed until 1872. Enjoy some quality time with your friends, marvel at the gorgeous scenery and take a sip of prosecco. It’s a great opportunity for a well-earned rest before the paddle back!
Wild river swim
On your way back up stream, take a dip and wild swim in the river before heading back to shore. It’s a great way to relax and end your tour on a natural high.
