Kayaking & Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Cornwall


Recently voted silver in the Cornwall Tourism Award for "Small Visitor Attaction of the Year 23/24", our multi-award winning, British Canoeing Go Paddling Centre and BSUPA SUP School offers Kayak Trips, Kayak Hire & Stand Up Paddle Board Lessons & Tours, and MEGA SUP Hire in Cornwall on the stunning Fowey Estuary, National Landscape (formally AONB).

Quadruple Cornwall Tourism Award winner Encounter Cornwall has been running guided kayak trips and kayak hire since 2006 from The Boathouse in Golant at the heart of the Fowey Estuary. Now, with the addition of Cornwall Tourism Award Winners Paddle Cornwall SUP we are adding Stand Up Paddle Boarding lessons and Tours, two fun ways to get out on the water. Fancy something a little different, why not try the MEGA SUP available for hire daily.

Our kayak trips and SUP lessons and tours are an ideal introduction to the Fowey’s tidal waters, and are suitable for both beginners and experienced paddlers, offering an ideal opportunity to explore the Fowey Estuary. Kayak hire is also available to experienced paddlers.  

For those who have never tried SUP our New 2 SUP is the perfect session for you. For those who are no stranger to SUP and are confident on a board, you may prefer a SUP Tour session with a qualified instructor as your guide.

Whatever your preference, Kayak or SUP, we have a session that will be perfect, just for you!
