About our canoe club

We are an active group of members who meet regularly to go paddling and develop our skills.
We are a friendly group, who welcome both new and experienced paddlers to the club.

Club Nights

In the summer months, Porthpean Beach is the venue for our weekly evening paddle sessions, all led by our team of BC qualified coaches.
The club owns a number of kayaks plus gear, available for use by members and prospective members.

Sea Kayaking

The coastline of Cornwall is made up of stunning cliffs, golden beaches, historic ports and harbours, plus amazing wildlife. A sea kayak offers a unique opportunity to explore all this in a safe way within the club environment.

Surf and White Water

Cornwall has some of the best surf beaches in the UK, and Devon has some great white water rivers.
Surf Kayaking can be enjoyed all year round, and White Water Kayaking is perfect in the winter months with plenty of water in the rivers.
