Sea Kayaking is a wonderful way to discover the hidden beauty of the coastline and estuaries of South Devon.

Sea Kayaking allows you to move silently through nature experiencing the wildlife close up and undisturbed while exploring the hidden coves, cut-off beaches, remote inlets and caves you can only discover from the water.

The 3 Day Sea Kayaking Experience is not only a fabulous way to discover the coastline and natural world we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep in South Devon but it’s also a great way to take part in a fun, memorable outdoor activity with a small group of like minded people.



Each day we will choose one of the many locations along the coastline or river estuaries of South Devon.

Torbay is an ideal place to start with its sheltered waters, beaches and rocky coves. The coastline is a UNESCO Global Geopark home to the sea grass beds which are the breeding grounds of our native species of seahorse.

If you are interested in wildlife the Dart Estuary between Totnes and Dartmouth is the place. Seals, Cormorants, Little Egrets, Kingfishers, Herons and a wide variety of seabirds are often seen as we paddle or drift along with the tide in amongst the reed beds and remote side creeks.



As you gain confidence, the South Hams coastline is amazing for Sea kayaking it is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has a rugged coastline, sea caves, headlands and exposed cliffs for the more adventurous.

Dave and Susie will be your guides… Dave is a British Canoeing qualified Sea Kayak Leader and Sea Kayak coach and Susie has many years experience Sea kayaking around the South Devon Coastline.

If you would like to stay with us our Barn House and Farm House are available on a B&B basis with a kitchen for you to prepare your own evening meals.

What we’ll do:

Each morning we will meet up at the Farm House, discuss the options for the day based on the group, the weather and the tides. We’ll kit you up, load up the Sea kayaks have a safety briefing and head to the water.
