Cornwall Tourism Award winner Encounter Cornwall has been running guided canoe trips and kayak hire since 2006 from their quiet, safe and sheltered village base in Golant at the heart of the Fowey Estuary.

Their kayak trips are an ideal introduction to the Fowey’s tidal waters, and are suitable for both families and those new to kayaking. Explore its Creeks & Backwaters on the high tide – or on the low tide venture down to view it's Wildlife and historic Waterfronts.  On both trips you will be paddling through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Marine Conservation Area teeming with wildlife that includes kingfishers, herons, egrets, cormorants, various waders and if you’re lucky a seal or dolphin.

Prices include all necessary equipment, leaving you free to enjoy an experience which for many is the highlight of their holiday in Cornwall. They operate throughout the year and only need a minimum of two people to run a trip. 

With options for everyone from the complete beginner to those who want to be challenged - set sail for Fowey and "go with the flow"!
