Sea Life Explorer
Lasting an hour we stay within the headlands of Carbis Bay and is more an aquatic nature trail suited for everyone but best tailored to family groups and tiny tots. The super stable Hawaiian canoe is the craft of choice for this tour, providing a perfect platform to lean over the side and search for hidden treasures with tiny tots who can actually walk around in the canoe! Using our bathyscopes enable you to see clearly under water without even getting wet.
The Coastal Explorer lasts for approximately two hours which allows us to go beyound the point exploring the local coastline toward the bustling harbour of St. Ives taking in Bamaluz beach, Porthgwidden and even Porthmeor beach (dependent upon conditions). We often see Grey Seals, Mola Mola (Sunfish to you and me – check our YouTube channel out to see what they are) and it is not uncommon to see pods of Dolphin buzzing the local fishing boats off the ‘Island’. We have the option of using our Hawaiian Canoe’s, stand up paddle boards and our fleet of single and double sit on kayaks.
Our guided tours run throughout the season at regular intervals during peak season (English School Summer holidays), booking in advance is required ideally via the website but can also be done over the phone, particularly if you have a few questions you would like answered. All of our instructors work closely with the RNLI and are beach lifeguard qualified, hold current instructor and or guiding qualifications recognised both by British Canoeing, the Association of Surfing Instructors (SUP) and undergo rigorous, AALS (Adventurous Activities Licensing Service) endorsed, in-house training with our Internationally recognised Master Trainer, Glenn Eldridge.
