Cornish kayaking tours for paddlers of all abilities.
Kayaking and waveskiing is suitable for everyone - our mixture of single and tandem boats enable us to take people both young and old, experienced or not. We can teach you everything you need to have a great time and if you can't get to grips with it you can always enjoy spending your session with one of the Vertical Descents instructors on a tandem kayak. There are four different sessions available:
Newquay Harbour - A kayaking session for beginners, where you'll learn the basics whilst playing games and having fun in a safe, enclosed environment
Newquay Gannel Estuary - An estuary trip through the heart of Newquay, travelling up the River Gannel. Mixing wildlife to see and wave riding at the end this is a great trip for groups. (High tide only)
Fowey - A trip up the River Fowey on the South Coast
Padstow - A kayaking trip up the River Camel starting at the picturesque coastal town of Padstow
Kayaking is great fun, as well as providing strong upper-body fitness, improved water confidence and a new skill that can be used across the globe. Vertical Descents are one of the most established adventure companies in Cornwall, meaning you know you'll always be receiving some of the most expert instruction in the UK. The highly qualified team will always be looking out for you, ensuring your time on the water is always safe. Once your days are done, you're welcome back at the centre in Newquay to enjoy the cafe, bar, bbq and sun terraces overlooking the stunning coastline...the perfect way to end a day in the water!
