About Paddle Cornwall

We run multi-day sea kayaking trips in the Isles of Scilly for beginners and upwards. I sea kayak because its fun, I love the sense of freedom it gives me. Growing up near St. Ives the sea was my playground, I have been kayaking for over 30 years. I created Paddle Cornwall so that myself and the team could share these fantastic experiences with you. We value fun and safety, and we work under the qualifications and guidelines of the national governing body of British Canoeing.
