Just back from my 3rd tour of Kefalonia in September and have fallen in love all over again! This 6 day exped is never the same and neither are the conditions which, despite our idea of the Med, can be challenging. There were beautiful moments of calm crystal clear water, sun drenched beaches and moonlight campsites but this is an exped so we also faced lumpy sea conditions, unrelenting F3-5 winds, long paddles and storms: it's truly an adventure of contrasts. What is consistent however is the level of care, professionalism, and decision making of our guide Shaun and his support Paul (thanks for fishing me out!) These guys make it a super fun trip and you know you are always in good hands. I've already made space in my 2021 diary for at least 1 September week. Maybe I should try April too?!

We spent 2 great days learning the basics of sea kayaking. James and Geoff started each day chatting to us and listening to our needs and fears, then proposed a plan for the day. SKC provided all the necessary kit including wetsuits, bouyancy aids, and a large selection of kayaks. The coaching was excellent, and we both learnt a lot. Over the 2 days we progressed from flat calm water to being able to handle the boats confidently in gentle swells. Really great experience.

Being complete 'up for it' kayaking virgins (sea, river or canal) We did some research and read all the reviews on SKC and after a brief call with Shaun we knew we'd be in good hands. In our minds we dreamt of kayaking in calm sun drenched serene waters whilst learning skills, seeing wildlife and falling in love with the Falmouth coast from the ocean...... How I chuckle at how different the reality was. The weather took a dramatic change the night before and we were met with winds upto 33mph/ Beaufort scale 6. This brand new activity was truly a ‘fight or flight’ experience for us! Shaun was our guide and we both felt completely safe the entire time. He is super calm, experienced and funny as hell!! We went out with 3 other experienced kayakers and due to their help, advice and patience we managed to stay afloat most of the time, and when we didn’t the party of 3 got to practice rough sea water rescues. During one of these rescues we even had a foot long fish fly out of the water to cheer us on!! After stopping for lunch on a beautiful deserted little cove in the sun, we watched the weather slowly getting worse. After apx an hour of being back in the water I slowly but firmly fell into grips of seasickness. 🤢🤢 So sadly we had to abort, but again, our group got to practice long towing of our kayaks back to shore. Despite having to abort, we highly recommend you try kayaking as either a list ticking experience or a full time sport that you can travel the world with! Thank you all again SKC (Shaun) from the bottom of our hearts for taking our sea kayaking cherries and for keeping us safe! Also to Ruth, Rachel and Matt and for being such a fantastic group of people who had so much faith in us and respected that we gave it damn good go!!

I whole heartedly recommend SKC👍 Spent a fantastic week with James, Shaun and Geoff getting first class coaching and exciting day trips around some of Cornwall’s best paddle spots. All well organised and a terrific knowledgeable, supportive and friendly team at Sea Kayak Cornwall. Why would you want to go anywhere else for your Cornish sea kayaking adventure!
