During the paddle, we will paddle down river, to take in the green water views, with an opportunity to stop for a swim, explore the coast, then we will paddle up river to look for local wildlife. After that we will paddle back to the launch point to land the boards, where everyone will be feeling great, happy and have huge smiles on their faces. it will make you feel relaxed, ready to continue with the day or evening.
The Gannel estuary is a wildlife haven, situated between Newquay and Crantock it long existed as a hideaway for smugglers but has now been taken over by numerous birds and other species. As the tide floods in and people disappear you are left with the beautiful tranquility of birdsong and the iridescent colours of the sands below. This truly is a Cornish gem that cannot be beaten for sunrise or sunset when the suns glow cascades across the water.
This experience is SUP at sunrise. There is a choice of various locations along the Cornish south coast. We can sit back relax and watch the sun rise, which is truly a magical way to start your day. This creates a perfect photo opportunity for those keen photographers. Once the sun is up slightly we can have a little paddle in the bay, again creating some fantastic photo opportunities and providing us with the best start of the day.
This bespoke experience is for individuals, pairs or small groups, aimed at all abilities and experience levels.
