Best Places to Paddle in Cornwall Guide

Memorable SUP Tours, lessons and Holidays

Before I was lucky enough to move to Cornwall, when I visited I was always looking for ideas and advice on places to paddle, answers to practical questions:-

  • is the journey suitable for my ability and conditions?

  • will I be able to park?

  • is there a launch fee?

  • how long is the carry?

  • is there a nice pub?

and many more........

After being lucky enough to move here over 10 years ago and more recently running a mobile Stand Up Paddleboard Business, I'm in a perfect position to help others discover Cornwall, it's wildlife, coast and waterways.

Stand Up Paddleboard - Helford River

Suitable for novice (in calm conditions) and advanced paddlers, the River Helford offers both easy access to the stunning coastline of Falmouth Bay and to the tree lined river and it's creeks.  The River is home to many wading birds including herons and oyster catchers and there are vast swathes of oysters visible at low tide.  The water is clear particularly to the east making a firm favourite for wild swimming and paddle sports.
