Welcome to Encounter Cornwall
Kayaking in Cornwall on the Fowey Estuary
Encounter Cornwall has been running guided canoe trips and kayak hire on the Fowey Estuary since 2006.
Our trips are an ideal introduction to kayaking on the Fowey’s sheltered tidal waters, and are suitable for both families and those new to kayaking. Explore its Creeks & Backwaters on the high tide – or on the low tide venture down to its historic Harbours & Beaches. 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 kayaks and 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. We also offer kayak hire to experienced paddlers.
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"!
"Many thanks for a great trip on Sunday, it was one of the highlights of our fortnight in Cornwall and you are on our list of must do's for our next visit!"
