On this five day expedition we hope to show you just what sea kayaking means to us. On Monday morning we will look at the weather and decide the best option to explore the Cornish coast. Either starting from Falmouth or being dropped off at a suitable location. The week is aimed at INTRO/mediate – Intermediate paddlers or paddlers close to the BCU 3* level. We will discover great wild camping locations along the coast and explore the spectacular cliffs, caves and beaches of Cornwall. Along the way we can help develop any aspect of your paddling. We will also look at food foraging and camp craft skills.
You should be an Intermediate paddler at or around the BCU 3* level. We will cover distances of upto 15-20 miles (6 hours) a day depending on conditions. You do not need to have camped from a seakayak before.
