Kayak Guided Tours
Please note: We are the only company operating from Combe Martin that are AALA licensed (A legal requirement if taking under 18's). We are also the only company that has qualified sea kayak leaders (required for sea kayak tours and guided trips). We are not associated with any other company offering these services.
Paddle & explore all what Combe Martin bay has to offer with the reassurance of being accompanied by fully qualified & highly experienced local guides. Our tours start at our centre where you will be introduced to your guide along with being kitted out with all the required equipment including wetsuits. Our centre is just 50m from the beach, all kayaks will be on the beach waiting for you at the waters edge. Your tour will begin with some basic paddling instruction & safety information. Your guide will then take you to various locations around the bay including private & idyllic beaches, caves & local spots where dolphins, porpoise & seals are sometimes spotted.
Our tours normally last around 2hrs & are well suited to any capability. We are able to cater for small groups (minimum 2) or larger groups of 20+. We generally only run a maximum of 2 tours per day owing to tidal conditions & to ensure you have the best possible experience. We are the longest established kayak tour operator in Combe Martin along with being the most qualified & experienced. We are also able to offer "mini tours" lasting 1hr. Please feel free to contact us for pricing & further information.

My husband, son and I booked a two hour guided tour. We were met by Vince who took us through all we needed to know, then out on the water with Mike. We had not done any kayaking for years, but straight away felt confident in our double and single kayaks. We had a great time, benefiting from Mike's superb local knowledge and interesting stories. The scenery was beautiful and a two hour session was plenty for a first time out. We will be back! Happy to recommend to all.

Great paddling around Combe Martin. Tried two other centres but neither would let me hire a kayak for my under 15 to paddle on his own, even though he is not a novice paddler. The Outdoor shop and kayak centre saved the day as both kids wanted to paddle and I wanted my 8 year old on a double with me. Quick safety check and briefing and we were off into the sheltered waters of Combe Martin Bay.

Great family kayak tour last weekend. Having previously had to cancel due to poor weather it was well worth the wait! Perfect weather and a knowledgeable guide who recounted interesting and entertaining local stories. In spite of little previous experience we all felt well looked after. Thanks to Mike and Vince.

We had a great time on our guided Kayak Trip. Vince was a super guide. Lots of passion, information and he also took some pictures during the trip so we could remember the lovely morning.
