Try sea kayaking in St Austell Bay

St Austell, Cornwall

With its sheltered beaches and harbours, St Austell Bay is the ideal location for sea kayaking.

Learn to kayak with top instructors at the beautiful St Austell Bay, and explore all of the nooks and crannies of the Cornish coastline which can’t be accessed from land.

For your own adventure, relaxation, a bit of fishing or just to keep cool in the summer, the kayaking schools in the bay offer lessons for all abilities. Kayaks can be hired for full or half days, seating one to two people.

The southwest coast has a vast diversity of wildlife which can be spotted from both land and out in the water; keep your eyes peeled for sea birds, seals, and even dolphins.

Finish the day by soaking up the last of the summer rays, indulge in a traditional Cornish pasty or head off for a bite to eat at one of St Austell’s fantastic restaurants and pubs offering delicious Cornish produce daily.
