Sea Kayaking Experience South Devon

Paignton, United Kingdom

Experience hosted by David And Susie

3 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Sea Kayaking allows you to move silently through nature experiencing the wildlife close up and undisturbed while exploring the headlands, beaches, and cut off coves you can only discover from the water.

We will meet up at 9:30am for the morning session or 1:30 for the afternoon session to discuss the options for the trip. We’ll kit you up, load up the Sea kayaks have a safety briefing and head onto the water. No previous Sea kayaking experience is needed, all equipment and coaching provided. If you have Sea kayaked before this is a great opportunity to improve your skills.

Torbay is an ideal place to Sea kayak with its sheltered waters, beaches and rocky coves. The coastline is a UNESCO Global Geopark and home to the sea grass beds which are the breeding grounds of our native species of seahorse.

If you are interested in wildlife there is so much to see. Seals, Cormorants, Little Egrets, Kingfishers, Herons and a wide variety of seabirds are often seen as we paddle along. If we are lucky we may even spot Porpoise, sunfish and dolphins and in recent years humpbacked whales have become welcome visitors to the coastline during the summer months.

Sea Kayaking is not only a wonderful way to experience nature close up and undisturbed but also a great way to take part in a fun, memorable outdoor activity with a small group of like minded people.
Other things to note
No previous experience needed, the tours are available for anyone over the age of 12 who can confidently swim 50m and has a reasonable level of fitness. Under 18s need to be accompanied by an adult.

Where you'll be

Most of the trips will start at Broadsands beach a sheltered sandy beach which allows easy launching. We will then make our way along the rocky coastline exploring beaches and coves along the way. Depending on the group, the weather and the tides we may transport the Sea kayaks to Brixham harbour and launch from there and make our way back towards Broadsands beach.

Wonderful experience with David & Susie, one of the highlights of our trip. David & Susie were extremely friendly & knowledgeable; very patient with my dad who didn’t take to kayaking as quickly as the rest of the group! All 5 of us absolutely loved our time on the water and would recommend to anyone. We would certainly rebook if we go back to Devon! Thanks guys!

We absolutely loved the experience and would do it again in a heartbeat! The hosts were brilliant and very knowledgeable but relaxed and friendly. Don’t be put off by the rain or mist, we had a little on the way out but actually it was beautiful. Sun came out half way through and we had a lovely sunny trip back. Couldn’t recommend this enough!
