Kayak Hire


Hiring a kayak from Swanpool Beach is a great way to explore Cornwall’s stunning coastline. Kayaking gives you a wonderful sense of freedom; you are out on the water with no distractions, experiencing nature and wildlife close up! Our brand new kayaks are incredibly stable and will give you the confidence to get out there even if you’re a complete beginner, no prior experience necessary. Each day we monitor the weather conditions to ensure your safety and we’ll give you tips and guidance on where to go. The safe and sheltered waters of Swanpool bay are perfectly suited to sit on top kayaking. With many secret beaches and caves nearby, there is enough to keep both adults and children exploring for hours. We also have fishing rods for hire; fresh mackerel for the BBQ is a regular occurrence!

Helpful Information

We will fit you with a buoyancy aid, these are compulsory and must be worn at all times.
You will get a wet bum and wet feet so bringing a change of clothes, bathing costume or a wetsuit is a good idea. We have wetsuits for hire should you want one.
Pre booking is not essential, but if in any doubt about the weather conditions or anything else please do give us a call on 07769 110946. Parents can take young or inexperienced children out on double kayaks for a fun adventure on the water. We can accomodate group bookings for up to 30 people, please get in contact to discuss.
