Guided Stand-up Paddleboarding
Join one of our guided stand-up paddleboard (SUP) lessons and tour around Port Gaverne and Port Isaac, enjoying a unique view of this beautiful stretch of coastline. We’ll provide full instruction (catering for complete beginners through to seasoned paddlers) and visit otherwise inaccessible rock-gardens, coves and caves, keeping an eye out for some of the marine life that visits our shores as we share this unspoilt environment with you.
Cornish Rock Tors’ guided SUP trips offer a great introduction to this enormously popular and very accessible activity, allowing you to learn the basics on calm water in the shelter of Port Gaverne Cove before we take you on a guided paddle to put your new skills to practice. Even if this is your first time having a go at stand-up paddling you’ll develop the skills and confidence to explore the coastline with us and venture beyond shin-deep water. This stretch of coastline is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and (depending upon conditions) there is the option of paddling the short distance around to the picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac. We’ll paddle beneath high cliffs, explore rocky gullys and coves, and can even paddle into some of the large sea caves in the area. There are plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife from the vantage point of your paddleboard, from seals and jellyfish to a variety of seabirds.
We use state of the art 10’8” inflatable SUPs from a leading British brand, and they are incredibly stable and easy to use. Absolutely no previous paddling experience is required, as your instructor will introduce you to the board and all of the basic paddle-strokes that you will need to get you on your way. Sessions last for around two and a half 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), although we can accommodate younger children if accompanied by a parent and subject to conditions and availability. We ask that children under 14 years old are accompanied by an adult.
Guided SUP sessions start from £40.00 per person with all equipment included.
Cornish Rock Tors’ SUP instructors are all fully qualified UKCC instructors with a great deal of experience. They have also undergone our in house training to ensure you are in the safest hands.
