Pleased to say that I have been awarded a 2021 Travellers’ Choice Award from Trip Advisor.
Apparently that puts St Mawes Kayaks in the top 10% of attractions worldwide! I had no idea I was so popular…
Thanks to all who have taken the time to post a review.

Enjoy September and October, a welcome and a quieter time of the season-
You can’t get much more outdoors and in the fresh air than a paddle up the Percuil!
As always, email to book in advance. Any payments will be fully refunded should restrictions be re-imposed (heaven forbid). Have a good look at all the info. here on the site, and put as much detail into your enquiry as possible. Although this is generally a quieter time, it can be busy on some days in good weather. So it’s still a good idea to book, even just to check I’m operating a day or two before you plan on coming, just in case I’m taking a sneaky day off…
I look forward to seeing you soon, Mark.

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 the 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!
