Sea Adventures

Cornwall has a diverse range of wildlife out at sea, on the beaches, and along the coastline. Whether you are strolling along the beach or taking a wildlife-watching tour, Cornwall’s rich marine and coastal wildlife are all around. Many varieties of molluscs are numerous in Cornish waters, both freshwater and saltwater species, while crustaceans reign over the coastline and rock pools, home to crabs such as the spider crab, lobsters, prawns, and the tenacious barnacles who cling to the rocks found around the coast.

A Fishing Trip from Padstow on Emma Kate, a Lochin 38 sea-fishing boat, built by one of the best and oldest British boatbuilding companies is not to be missed. Moored in Padstow, one of the most picturesque working harbours, join Skippers Lee and John for a fishing trip out to sea.

Join Cornish Kayaking for an unforgettable adventure exploring the Camel Estuary and Cornish Coastline. You will be guided safely along sheltered beaches and coves, play in the waves, and rest on hidden bays along the way. Kayaking is open to all abilities, with no previous experience required. Experienced guides will teach essential kayak skills under their watchful eyes. Kayaking is the ideal activity for families, individuals and friends looking for adventure and fun on the sea.

Take a Safari Trip with Wavehunters and explore the dramatic, rugged coastline of North Cornwall. Whether you are a first-time or experienced sailor, their boat trips take you along Cornwall’s unique coastline to look for a stunning array of wildlife. Depending on the Seasons, this may include puffins (spring through to early summer) peregrine falcons, dolphins, seals, minke whales, sei whales, jellyfish, sunfish, and porpoises. On beautiful sunny days when the ocean is crystal clear, you can spot lobsters crawling along the ocean bed in the shallow waters of seal caves. Let Reception book your trip.

Coasteering is an exciting and action-packed exploration of a stretch of rocky coastline. Travel along an otherwise inaccessible stretch of the Cornish coast, swimming into rocky coves, through exhilarating whitewater features, adventuring into caves, and of course, leaping from our favourite jump spots. With a range of routes and activity levels, coasteering with Cornish Rock Tors is a truly accessible experience for all ages and abilities. Sessions take place in the beautiful National Trust location at Port Gaverne offering access to a stunning stretch of unspoiled coast. All equipment is provided including a warm 5mm wetsuit, thick-soled wetsuit boots, a buoyancy aid, and a helmet.
