Explore Cornwall

Intermediate 1-day and 5-day Kayaking Trips

(..and check our availability calendar)

Expedition summary

We hope to show you just what sea kayaking in Cornwall means to us.

This is an exploration touring week/weekend consisting of individual day trips while staying in a warm “base camp” environment.

The base camp can range from our neighbourly lodge and campsite based at Tregedna Farm or a local hotel, B&B establishment.


We will meet each morning at our cabin at Tregedna where we will consider what the weather allows us to do and decide the best venue available to us for that day to get out and explore the Cornish coast.
