Activity Highlights:

Our Estuary SUP & Bushcraft Experience is an unforgettable journey combining the serenity of stand-up paddleboarding and the thrill of bushcraft survival skills. This family-friendly experience is your chance to explore the scenic Gannel Estuary and toast marshmallows on an open fire.

Stand-up paddleboarding is easy and fun with our expert instructors. They’ll teach you how to launch, land, balance, and paddle in the stunning Gannel Estuary. Whether a beginner or an expert, there’s no pressure – you can start by kneeling and progress to standing when you are ready.

We will begin on the Gannel Estuary and discover its scenic beauty, gliding through tree-lined banks and historical sites. We will then paddle to Penpol Creek, a hidden oasis.

After a relaxed paddleboarding tour, you will experience the ultimate survival challenge, learning about how to build a fire and survive in the wild. We will tell you stories of the history of the Gannel Estuary (spooky ones, if you like), we will toast marshmallows over the fire and ride on a rope swing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Stand up Paddleboarding or ‘SUP’ for short is one of the fastest growing waters sports in the world. Using a very large, stable board (similar to a surfboard) and a single-blade paddle you can navigate your way along coastlines, rivers and lakes.

Rain is no problem for a water-based activity! In fact, there’s no better way to make the most of a damp day than to get wet anyway! You will get changed into your wetsuit in our warm, dry changing rooms, then when you have your wetsuit on the rain isn’t an issue.

No need to worry, it’s all part of the learning process and can actually be quite fun!  You can climb back onto your board relatively easily, but if you struggle your instructor will be there to help out.

Everybody is different and the conditions on the day can greatly affect how quickly you will learn the basics. In calm conditions, most adults will learn to effectively knee paddle in the first 10 minutes and be stand-up paddling within half an hour.

You need to bring a towel and swimwear. Footwear will also be required so bring either a pair of trainers that you don’t mind getting wet or wetsuit boots. If not you can hire from us for £5.

Yes. We require that anybody taking part in any of our water sports, including SUP, is able to swim 50 metres.

Sessions last for approximately 2 hours from when you have got all your kit on. You can expect to be with us for around 2 and half hours overall.

We will explore one of two routes. ‘The Gazzle’ is our ocean-based route along Newquay’s famous Towan Head. We will launch from either Towan beach or the old Lifeboat slipway depending on tide and surf conditions. Our river-based route is on the beautiful Gannel estuary, only a 5-minute drive from the centre.

We regularly see the local seals up close; we have also seen dolphins in Newquay bay, as well as Sunfish and Lion’s mane jellyfish. Basking sharks have also been seen on rare occasions (don’t worry, they are completely harmless and have no teeth). There is also an impressive array of birdlife, especially on our Gannel estuary route.

We primarily use inflatable boards, however we do have some hard boards for more experienced paddlers to use.

Providing you meet the minimum requirement of 50 metres swimming capability and you have no current health issues or injuries preventing you from taking part in physical activity you can come. Don’t worry, it’s not a race and your instructor will make sure the group moves at the pace of the slowest paddler and will assist weak paddlers when needed.

All of our SUP Instructors are qualified British Canoeing Paddlesport leaders. They are also Beach and Surf Safety Lifeguards. They have years of personal experience in the water, and attend regular site-specific staff training. We also work in closely with the RNLI to ensure your safety in and out of the water.
