Well, that’s it for 2020- It has certainly been a strange old year; with absolutely nothing for the first three months of the season, to then having six months crammed into July, August and September! I realise that I have been a good deal luckier than some this year, and I am extremely grateful that we did get a summer season in the end and for everyone’s support- thank you.
Thanks to Will also, for running the kayaks during the summer for the last seven seasons, and never once letting me down- all the best in your first “proper job”! Or back at uni???
Next year will be very different, let’s hope we’re not still suffering restrictions by then??? Whatever happens I will be running the kayaks only from next season, so it will feel very different for me; I will miss taking passengers for a whizz aboard “Paramour 2”, but I won’t miss fueling up at 2330, and some of the numpties that have appeared on the water this year.
I hope to see you all again next season for a paddle, until then keep well,

As much as I hate mentioning the “C” word before December… I am going to, as perhaps you’re wondering what to buy the person who has everything this Christmas?
Have they been paddling from St. Mawes before? Would you like to send them “Up the creek… with a paddle”? Why not buy them a Paddling Voucher to start them on their paddling adventure?
Email or use the bookings / enquiries form with the amount you’d like on the voucher (click here for prices), I’ll send you bank details, you transfer said amount and I’ll send you the voucher, so that you can make your recipient’s year on the day!

Paramour 2 has been sold!

For various reasons I have decided to stop running RIB Trips and Water Taxi trips.

The kayaks… will continue!

Over the last few years the RNLI has seen a huge increase in the number of call-outs to rescue inexperienced kayakers and paddle-boarders. So please listen to our advice on the day, paddle within your limits, stay close to the shore, think about the paddle back (it will be more difficult against wind and / or tide), and be aware of changing conditions.
We have never had any serious incidents, and I would very much like to keep it that way!
