Það sem verður gert

Our life and our tours are governed by the tides which are roughly an hour later every day, hence the daily time variations to ensure we always "go with the flow". Tours normally use stable double kayaks (single are available for experienced paddlers and carry a £5 supplement). All kayaking equipment is provided and tours last 3 hours.
After a short briefing we paddle from Golant with the tide. Our Creeks & Backwaters tour will take you up the estuary on the high tide and along "Wind in the Willows" Creek to picturesque Lerryn village. By contrast our low tide Wildlife & Waterfronts tour paddles down the estuary's wooded foreshores to Fowey's historic harbour. Tours start and finish in Golant and include a 30 minute break in Lerryn or Fowey where there are plenty of eating and drinking options. Herons, egrets, cormorants, shags, various waders and gulls are usually seen as are kingfishers, sandpipers and oystercatchers most months of the year. If you're lucky you might see a seal, a dolphin or a migrating osprey hunting for fish.
Our Boatshed base has a seasonal cafe and nearby is the excellent Fishermans Arms pub which overlooks the estuary. Parking nearby is available.

David and Karen run Encounter Cornwall, which since 2006 has been operating guided kayak tours on the Fowey Estuary, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Marine Conservation Zone.

Our tours are an ideal introduction to kayaking, to the Fowey's tidal waters and wildlife, and are suitable for anyone who is reasonably fit, including complete beginners. We are passionate about the estuary wildlife which include kingfishers, herons, egrets, cormorants and waders and if you're very lucky a seal or a dolphin.
Tours operate daily throughout the year.

Staðsetning

Kayaks get you to places others can't visit and put you on a level with the estuary's birds and waterfronts. The Fowey Estuary is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Marine Conservation Zone. Its steep ancient wooded valleys are timeless, steeped in history and a haven for wildlife. Fowey, Lerryn and our Golant base have been settlements for over 1000 years and are all relatively unspoilt and undiscovered backwaters of Cornwall.

My partner and I had a lovely day on the estuary learning about wildlife, the culture and the history of Fowey. David is full of knowledge and is passionate about creating a special experience. We would very much recommend this to anyone who enjoys an active and informative experience.

My husband and I had a great day out with David doing something we hadn’t done before. David was really kind and laid back so even though I tend to be a bit of a scare bear, I felt confident and in good hands! Recommend!!

Really lovely afternoon. Very fortunate to get such beautiful weather, but even so, David and Karen were really welcoming and had such brilliant insights into the wildlife and nature of the river Fowey. The kayaking was great, and well paced, plus the pasty stop was very appreciated!

We really enjoyed our kayaking experience. It was a lovely way to spend a few hours. David is friendly, knowledgeable and patient! The area is beautiful, peaceful and full of bird life. We need more practice so hope to be back.

David was very friendly and helpful. He made sure we all had the correct equipment and helped us to get in and out of the kayaks without getting wet. He shared local knowledge about the Natural environment and some of the history of the area. My children and I all had an enjoyable time.

Aðgerðaráðlegging

Sérfróðir samstarfsaðilar innan geirans
Öll ævintýri samræmast viðmiðum iðnaðarins. Við hófum samstarf við Adventure Travel Trade Association, leiðandi sérfræðinga í ævintýraferðum, við mótun starfsvenja og öryggisviðmiða.

Mikilvæg atriði

Kröfur til gesta

Allt að 10 gestir frá og með 5 ára aldri geta tekið þátt.

Fleiri ábendingar

Our trips are an enjoyable and relaxing introduction to kayaking and the Fowey Estuary and not an endurance test. A reasonable level of fitness is enough (able to walk a couple of miles). Our double kayaks are very stable and capsizes are extremely rare.

Hvað þarf að taka með

Dress for the weather as if you were walking. Legs often get splashed so waterproof trousers or shorts are good.

Footwear often gets wet. Old trainers or beach shoes are ideal.
