Our Trips

Maenporth – Helford

A 12 km trip for beginners and intermediate paddlers. The trip starts at Maenporth beach where you can see the wreck of the Ben Asdale, which went aground in a storm in 1979, costing three lives. You’ll paddle past the gorse-covered Rosemullion Headland, where there are excellent opportunities for spotting local marine wildlife, and then onward to the Helford River. This area is renowned for its deep sheltered valleys and ancient oak woodlands, hidden creeks and century old villages – perfect for paddling under low-hung branches and take ing in the riverside wildlife and breath-taking views. The sub-tropical gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan are clearly visible as you paddle down the Helford towards the Ferry Boat Inn, where you can stop off to relax on the beach, eat a picnic or visit the pub.

Maenporth – St Mawes

A 14 km trip aimed at beginners and intermediate paddlers. This scenic paddle contours the coastline past all of Falmouth’s major beaches until you reach Pendennis castle. It was constructed by Henry VIII to guard the approach to the Harbour. You’ll get a great view of the twin castles of St Mawes and Pendennis. Falmouth harbour is the third deepest natural harbour in the world, and as well as spotting seals, cormorants and other coastal wildlife, it’s a nautical mile crossing to the beautiful town of St Mawes.
