Your safety is paramount to us during kayaking trips. We use modern forecasting to let you know a few days ahead if weather conditions will affect your trip. If it’s just raining, we can still go out. But if it’s too heavy, we won’t go. The same goes for The Carrick Roads, where we may advise against going out due to sea conditions.

If visibility is poor, we won’t go out until it improves. Kayaking is weather-dependent, and safety is crucial. If we cancel due to weather, you’ll get a full refund, with an alternative date offered if possible.

On some summer evenings in July and August, we do operate beyond 18:00, if demand is there.

It depends on how much splashing you do. Even on a calm day, you are very likely to get a damp backside at least!

Wear something you don’t mind getting wet. Swimming shorts are ideal, and you can wear something warmer on top if you need to. Jeans or cotton trousers are not a good idea. You will also need to paddle into the water to embark on your kayak, so wear sandals or go barefoot. DO NOT WEAR WELLINGTON BOOTS. During the early season, a wetsuit is advisable.

St. Mawes offers two car parks for visitors to use. The main one can be found on the right-hand side as you drive into the village. To get there, turn right in front of the Rising Sun Inn. Another car park is located on the quay, but this is much smaller and is only suitable for short stays. During the summer months, both car parks tend to be crowded, and you may need to use the overflow car park at the top of the village, which requires a longer walk down to the harbour.

It’s important to allow plenty of time to get here and find a parking spot. The road to St. Mawes is scenic but can be narrow and winding in some areas. Alternatively, if you’re staying in the Falmouth area, consider taking the ferry over instead of driving. It’s a delightful way to reach St. Mawes.

Kayaks and canoes differ in their paddles; kayaks use a double-bladed paddle, while canoes use a single-bladed one. Eskimos constructed kayaks with stretched sealskins, which were closed-decked and easy to right.

In contrast, North American Indians made canoes from stretched tree bark, which had a higher freeboard. Though people today use the terms interchangeably, they are quite different in design and construction.
