Guided Sunrise Sea Kayak
Babbacombe gets the most beautiful sunrises with the sun rising out of the sea. We meet just before sunrise to watch it rise up as we head out onto the water. We paddle through the early morning hours as the marine wildlife is itself waking up. This creates amazing opportunities for wildlife observation and at a time of day before the prevailing winds begin. This creates a mirror on the water and our crafts are the first force to break that spell of dawn.
Kayaking was one of the fundamental skills used for hunting, fishing and travelling for our ancestors and a way of life for early western colonizers. We have since removed ourselves from this primitive way of life, but feel so fulfilled when we spend time back within these environments.
Our tours are an opportunity for you to return to the waters at the break of the day before the bucket and spade brigade have hit the beaches or the pleasure crafts have left the harbours. To clear out life's stresses and strains through the rhythmic motion of paddling that can be channeled as a form of meditation. Focusing on your breathing and body whilst working with the gentle flow of the ocean and taking in the overwhelming beauty and grandeur of the stupendous coastline at sunrise allows the mind to drift.
We take you on a journey back in time to discover an area steeped in history and world-famous geology. The beauty of the Geo-diversity of the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark is the ability to find tranquility due to its many secluded coves. The sensational feeling of gently bobbing up and down on the water reminds you of the forces that are in constant motion and the power that there is within.
We also have an amazing array of marine wildlife and we are very likely to encounter Seals and potentially Harbour Porpoises and Common Dolphins.
