The kayak tours start with the one-hour mini-tour, great for beginners and families with younger children. 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, Oyster catchers 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 later free of charge.

Before your kayak tour starts you will arrive at the Surfside shop in Combe Martin, where you will be shown into our adjacent changing facility, here you will be fitted with your wetsuit and buoyancy aid. From there it is a 2 minute walk to the beach where your kayaks will be ready for you. After a short safety brief and introduction to the kayak you will then set off on your tour.

We had a lovely afternoon paddling up the rocky coastline with Gary. He was a brilliant guide with loads of great stories and information about the area and very calm and patient when explaining how to paddle and where to go. A brilliant way to see the hidden beaches and wildlife of north Devon. Highly recommended! Thanks guys!

We are a family with three children and this was our first time Kayaking on the sea. We were taken out by Gary and Robin who were both really friendly, knowledgable and put us all at ease and made us feel completely safe during the whole tour. They even accommodated our dog in their yard while we were on the sea. If you are in North Devon and want to try Kayaking, then make sure you use Surfside. We will definitely be going back, hopefully before the end of the summer.
