Stunning Guided Kayak Adventures

Guided Kayak Adventures in Cornwall


Cornwall is without doubt one of the most impressive counties in the United Kingdom from the dramatic coastline to the beautiful in-land waterways.  Kayaking in Cornwall on one of our guided kayak tours is the ultimate way to discover the remote beauty this county has to offer.  We offer two hour tours with an experienced guide using sit on kayaks.  The two kayak adventures we offer are:

St Agnes Kayak Adventure from Trevaunance Cove, St Agnes which is half way between Newquay and St Ives. Affectionately named Poldark Country this coastline was the inspiration for Winston Graham’s Poldark series and

The Helford & Frenchman’s Creek Kayak Adventure launches from the private beach of the Budock Vean Hotel near Falmouth and the creek was the inspiration for Daphne Du Maurier’s famous novel.

Discover World Heritage Cornwall


Kayaking in Cornwall with Koru Kayaking is a great family activity. A guided kayak adventure is a great team building activity whether it is an office outing, a stag or hen do or a birthday party.  We run kayak adventures through out most of the year and kayaking is just as fun on a rainy day as it is on a sunny day.  The kayak adventure lasts approximately 2 hours and on hot days will include a swim off a secluded beach.  In the summer we run 3 tours per day and can accommodate 8 people (on 4 tandem kayaks) on the St Agnes Adventure from Trevaunance Cove and 8 (possibly more) on 4 tandem kayaks on The Helford & Frenchman’s Creek tour from Budock Vean Hotel, Port Navas Creek. We do have single kayaks to accommodate solo kayakers and parties with an odd number of participants.

Great Family Activity


Whether it is the dramatic cliffs, coves and World Heritage Mining on the St Agnes Adventure or the ship wreck and oak woodland on The Helford Kayak Adventure the scenery is unforgettable.  Kayaking is a great way to see the best of Cornwall while keeping fit.  No experience is necessary and our experienced guides will show you kayaking techniques and go through a detailed safety briefing.  Koru Kayaking works closely with the RNLI Lifeguards at St Agnes and your safety is our number one priority.  Buoyancy aids are provided for all participants and it is our policy that everyone should wear one. Children have to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and the guide will determine if the conditions are suitable for children.  Locations of our tours can change on a daily basis due to weather and sea conditions.  We advise that you book in advance to avoid disappointment and we look forward to welcoming you on a Koru Kayaking Adventure.

Experience The Helford by Stand Up Paddleboard


Stand Up Paddleboarding is an amazing way to experience the beautiful Helford River. The 2 hour SUP adventure starts from the stunning Budock Vean Hotel private beach where our guide will give tuition and provide you with all the equipment.  The stunning surroundings on calm waters are amazing with incredible history and wildlife in an area of outstanding natural beauty. On sunny days there is an opportunity to swim in the soft waters of the creeks, before paddling back to Budock Vean.
