Welcome to Encounter Cornwall
Kayaking and Paddleboarding in Cornwall on the Fowey Estuary
Cornwall Tourism Award winner Encounter Cornwall has been running guided canoe trips and kayak hire since 2006 from our quiet, safe and sheltered village base in Golant at the heart of the Fowey Estuary.
Our kayak trips are an ideal introduction to Fowey’s sheltered tidal waters, and are suitable for both families and those new to kayaking. We also hire to experienced paddlers. Explore its Creeks & Backwaters on the high tide – or on the low tide venture down to view it's Wildlife and historic Waterfronts. On both trips you will be paddling through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Marine Conservation Area teeming with wildlife that includes kingfishers, herons, egrets, cormorants, various waders and if you’re lucky a seal or dolphin.
Our price includes all necessary equipment, leaving you free to enjoy an experience which for many is the highlight of their holiday in Cornwall. We operate throughout the year and only need a minimum of two people to run a trip.
With options for everyone from the complete beginner to those who want to be challenged - come and join us on the Fowey and as we say "go with the flow"!
"We had a fantastic day kayaking with Dave last week. Dave is a true gent and is a great teacher. All of the family felt safe on the water and we all enjoyed a superb family trip, with all of us enjoying both the kayaking and Dave's commentary on points of interest and wildlife along the way. This was one of the highlights of our holiday which I highly recommend. Thanks!!!"
