There is a Guided kayak tour to suit everyone whether you are an expert paddler or total novice we will endeavour to make your kayaking adventure as safe and enjoyable as possible. Our kayak tours start with the one-hour mini-tour, great for beginners and families with younger children. We have discovered through years of experience that for most young children one hour on the water is enough for them.
Then on to our most popular Sea kayak tour, a two-hour scenic paddle to explore the stunning scenery and coastline of Combe Martin Bay and Exmoor national park viewing the Hangman hills the highest sea cliffs in mainland Britain along the way. There is ample time to look out for the local wildlife including various seabirds such as Fulmars, Oystercatchers and Cormorants. There are Peregrine falcons nesting in the sea cliffs and in the water we have regular sightings of, Dolphins, Porpoise, Sunfish, and Seals.
There is also uniquely from Surfside kayak hire, an evening kayak tour available, Combe Martin has the most stunning sunsets from May to August and to be out kayaking in the evening is an amazing experience. We are also now offering a longer three-hour tour aimed at the more experienced kayaker or for some of our customers that have been on the two-hour tour and would like to go that bit further afield. Our Kayak Tours are tailored to the customer’s requirements and abilities; we take individuals and groups of up to twenty plus.
You will get to visit small secluded Beaches, Coves, Secret inlets, and Hidden Caves many of which can only be reached by kayak. You will have photographs taken by your guide and emailed to you free of charge.
