Welcome to Encounter Cornwall
Kayaking and Paddleboarding in Cornwall on the Fowey Estuary
Encounter Cornwall has been running guided canoe trips and kayak hire since 2006 from our quiet, safe and sheltered 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 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 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"!
"Would give it more stars if I could!. What a fantastic trip!!!! My boys aged 6 & 9 loved every minute of the 3hrs as did their dad and myself. It was my eldest's birthday surprise and he has told everyone that it was his best birthday EVER. I can't wait to go back to Cornwall to do it all again"
