Adventure – Explore – Discover

We want to inspire everybody to get out on the water to enjoy and explore the magnificent coastal location of St.Ives.

The Ocean Sports Centre is a family run business located on the stunning beach of Carbis Bay.

We offer something for everyone, whether you want to learn the latest watersports craze of Stand Up Paddleboarding, explore the bay on kayak, head out on an adventure in our canoes or go for a blast in a sailing boat – there so many ways to get out on the water and enjoy the Cornish coast!

All activities can be arranged for individuals, groups, parties and families.

Carbis bay is a unique and stunning location, a golden sandy beach and clear waters, you could call it the Cornish Caribbean! We are 10 mins from St Ives main town, so escape the hustle and bustle and come and relax on this best kept secret!
