We booked online in advanced for 2 single kayaks for half a day. Booking was super easy and all information needed was sent over with confirmation. We arrived and was explained the recommended route to Fowey and back and then got all our kit and kayaks and headed out. All the team at Encounter Cornwall were super helpful, friendly and really chilled. When we got back the flapjack and brownies you can buy there were well needed and tasted amazing! Highly recommended, will be recommending to others and will book again when we are in the area next! Thank you so much to everyone at Encounter Cornwall 😊

Great morning Paddle Boarding with a group of 15. All ages and abilities were catered for with skill, experience and compassion! Beautiful spot to paddle board as it was very flat and incredibly tranquil! Special shout out to Ben who got lumbered with me at the back! Thanks to all!

As an introduction to SUP this was perfect. Jules and Phil couldn’t have done more from the moment we arrived to when we left. Having tried (and failed) at surfing we were wary of trying SUP but needn’t have worried- we received detailed advice before being let loose on the water so that we both managed to stay upright! The Pill was perfect to gain confidence on the board and I would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a great introduction to SUP. We are hooked and will be back to learn more.

A great way to see the shores of the River Fowey, Kayaking. A picturesque paddle, along the way, a baby seal was amongst the wildlife that was seen. Our journey down river to Fowey was a little wet, raining, but that just added to the enjoyment. 1/2 hour stop in Fowey then a paddle back, the whole experience was approximately 5.8 miles , Strava, of fun. Along the route our guides were attentive and knowledgeable. Defiantly a must for those with some energy to spare. K:))
