Join SKT for our premier Full Moon Wild Camping Sea Kayak Adventure. You will take to the waters of the English Riviera on a 2 day adventure exploring the wonders of a World Famous Geopark. Working with the tides and winds we will explore in the day using the elements to our advantage and in the night watch the sit out under the stars by our camp fires in the footsteps of our cave dwelling paleolithic ancestors.
The English Riviera Unesco Geopark is peppered with stunning coves throughout its 22 miles of coastline. It offers such a diverse range of beaches, coves and headlands that we do not have to travel far to find ourselves within a different geological period of time. From Arid desert Sandstone cliffs to Limestone folded over and over on itself and studded with ancient fossils.
There is no better way than sharing an experience on the water in South Devon to catch up with friends or spend some quality time with the family. Our national and regional award winning small group tours are becoming increasingly popular. Book now or gift one to your friends or family.

Our two-day tour is another great way to get the most from your visit to Torbay if you wish t relax in your own accommodation and join us each day at a different location in the English Riviera. Exploring the coast by Sea Kayak is the only way to adventure, using the glide of the Kayak as a vehicle to access the gems hidden among remote coves.
We will travel at a snails pace looking at the features of the bay and stopping at the odd good fishing location to try and catch our lunch. We were blessed through 2018 with such great weather that many of our clients enjoyed wild swimming in caves and from secluded beaches.
Each day we will stop at multiple beaches for refreshments, exploration and cooking our lunch on hot stones followed by toasted marshmallows. You will learn about the story of our Rocks and there incredible journey to where they sit today and define this special place.
This tour is perfect if you want to really immerse yourself in something different in an area of outstanding beauty or as others say Englands most beautiful bay.
The 2 day tour can be converted into a wild camp, please contact us as this is not a client bookable tour.
Any 2 days all year round, can be taken together or seperately

Our introductory courses give you a skill set that empowers you to take your kayaking to the next level. This is perfect for those who have their own boats and wish to learn how to handle them more effectively. We will train on the land and sea taking in the holistic nature of Sea Kayaking and the environment that we operate within. You will be able to master easy techniques that allow you to steer the craft with your body. This naturally increases your glide and your ability to easily maneuver your craft. You are able to practise these skills progressively and at your own rate or just come and enjoy the adventure and try something new. Most paddlers find that after the course there paddling ability, knowledge and awareness is significantly increased.
Over the two days we will focus our time in the sheltered areas of the bay, using a journey to find interesting features to play around and practise maneuvering your craft. As we progress we will use these skills to Rockhopp around the Coves and through the Caves. We will launch and land from harbours and beaches creating the opportunity to practise in a range of environments and under different conditions. We will look at a range of equipment, clothing and accessories that can benefit you and your future development in the sport.
We develop your knowledge of trip planning, as well as weather and tidal navigation. You can expect to go rock hopping and paddling through caves with this activity.
