Welcome to Encounter Cornwall
Kayak Trips and Kayak Hire 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 the Fowey’s 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"!
"This is a must do trip to explore the Fowey river estuary. David and Karen are experienced, knowledgeable and passionate about the river and surrounding area. You could not be in better hands especially if it's your first time!
A wonderful experience and we will be back again for sure!!
Thank you once again.."
