Sea Kayaking at St Ives Surf School

Sea Kayaking in Cornwall is a fun and active way to take in all the natural delights of the beautiful St Ives coastline.

Our guided sea kayaking tour is a picturesque 1 1/2hr exploration of the St Ives bay and surrounding area, and can be enjoyed on either a single or double kayak depending on your preference. Our sit-on-top kayaks are extremely safe, easy to use and require no previous kayaking experience.

After an initial safety talk and introduction from your sea kayak guide, you’ll leave the beach at Porthminster and progress leisurely along the rugged Cornish coastline. Throughout the journey, be sure to keep an eye out for seals, dolphins, sunfish, cormorants and gannets, all of which are common in this part of Cornwall.

Please note that a basic level of skill and fitness will be required to participate in the tour and all participants under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian present at time of the activity. These tours are tide and weather dependant so please allow some flexibility when booking. Single and Double Kayak rental is also available from our base on Porthminster Beach.
