Sea Kayaking Cornwall

Nothing beats the view of the Cornish coastline from the water, and Cornish Rock Tors’ guided sea kayaking trips are the best way to experience that. With locations on both the North and South coasts of Cornwall, join us to paddle to remote beaches, spot wildlife and explore beautiful, unspoiled scenery away from the crowds.


Sea Kayaking with Cornish Rock Tors is a great way to get out on the water and explore the coast. We run guided excursions from our bases at Port Gaverne on the rugged North Coast and Towan Beach on the beautiful rolling Roseland Peninsula on Cornwall’s South Coast (both in partnership with the National Trust), giving you a greater choice of locations and scenery, and the ability to get out there whatever the weather. On the North Coast you can paddle beneath towering cliffs and explore rocky gullies and sea caves, whilst the South Coast offers secluded sandy beaches, glassy water and a wealth of wildlife to view.

Our sturdy double sit-on-top kayaks are stable and easy to use, and they allow you to paddle as a pair so that you can share the effort and concentrate on enjoying the scenery. Absolutely no previous kayaking experience is required, as your instructor will introduce you to the boat and all of the basic strokes that you will need to get you on your way. Sessions last for around three hours, two hours of which is spent on the water. Participants must be eight years old or over and competent swimmers (i.e. be able to swim 25M in a pool unaided). We ask that children under 14 years old are accompanied by an adult.

Cornish Rock Tors’ sea kayaking instructors are all qualified UKCC instructors with a great deal of sea kayaking experience. They have also undergone our in house training to ensure you are in the safest hands.
