These magical islands, off the south west coast of Cornwall, are a fantastic place to kayak.  Not to mention the sense of peace that washes over you as you step onto St Martin's quay.  We have now added an extra night's camping which gives you an added day off, enabling you to make the most of your time in this outstanding place, and explore the islands on foot too.

Our 4 day trip includes kayaking on 3 of the days and is for complete beginners and those wanting to try sea kayaking for the first time.  If you have kayaked before you are also welcome, and please note that we will be starting with the basics. It also includes 4 nights of camping.


Our 5 day trips are aimed at those with some kayaking experience (at least 3 days worth) and those who are happy spending longer in a kayak and paddling further.  You need to know that you are alright in the kayaking position for up to 2 hrs without a break.  That you are physically fit enough to paddle for a number of days in a row.  The trip includes kayaking on 4 days, a day off and 5 nights of camping.

Our qualified and very experienced guides work under the professional body of British Canoeing, they create a relaxed and fun environment in which to learn and improve.

We will be based at St Martin’s campsite.  We aim to do plenty of sea kayaking with trips to as many of the islands as we can get to!  Different trips each day.  Enjoying the wildlife and breath-taking scenery that this unique location has to offer.   

Our prices include camping for 4 or 5 nights depending on your choice of trip.  Plus your tuition/guiding fee and kayaking kit (closed cock-pit sea kayak , spray deck, paddle, buoyancy aid, cag, helmet and long john wetsuit).

Make sure you book your ferry home for the day after your trip ends otherwise you will miss your last day of kayaking/exploring on foot.  The extra day gives us the luxury of picking the best days for kayaking based on the weather and gives you the opportunity to explore what else the islands have to offer.  For example the famous Abbey Gardens, St Martins vineyard or snorkelling with seals.
