Our Safaris are a jam-packed micro adventure for small groups or families with options for half day, full day, dawn patrol or our very special Sunset tour. All ours Tours can be taken on SUP’s, Kayaks or one of our Out-rigger Hawaiian Canoes.
Ocean Sports Safaris are part adventure, part tuition and part aquatic nature trail. Our highly skilled guides will deftly explore iconic locations in and round St. Ives Bay or hidden gems of deepest darkest Penwith. Whichever the location, it will be one to remember for a lifetime. To ensure that we get the best conditions timings for departure can be flexible based upon wind and tide.

Coastal Explorer

The ecological diversity of the marine inhabitants in Carbis Bay never ceases to amaze. Our four and six man Outrigger Canoes, also known as Hawaiian canoes, provide stable viewing platforms as we take you on a magical exploration of the local coastline within the bay or extend further out toward the bustling harbour of St. Ives taking in Bamaluz beach, Porthgwidden and even Porthmeor beach (dependent upon conditions). We often see Scholes of Mola Mola or Sunfish to you and me – it is not uncommon to see pods of dolphin buzzing the local fishing boats off the ‘Island’.

The Coastal Explorer lasts for approximately 1hr 30mins

From £20.00 Per Person

  • Fully qualified guide to steer your boat
  • Outrigger paddle
