1. Kayak Adventure from Budock Vean

Kayak Adventure from Budock Vean

Frenchman’s Creek is peaceful and stunning inlet off the Helford River which offers a rich array of sights from the kayak. The Kayak adventure starts from Budock Vean Hotel private beach where we head towards the Helford Passage passing sailing boats and banks of ancient oak forest. Paddling across the Helford River we enter Frenchman’s Creek, the inspiration for Daphne du Marier’s novel ‘Frenchman’s Creek’. The serene surroundings on calm waters are amazing with shipwrecks and secluded beaches situated on the creek. On sunny days there is an opportunity to swim in the soft waters of the creek, before paddling back to Budock Vean. The kayak adventure lasts approximately 2 hours and on sunny day includes a swim on secluded beaches. In the summer we run 4 tours per day and can accommodate 8 people per tour. Before we start the kayak adventure the guide will go through a detailed safety briefing with all participants and a health questionnaire will also have to be filled out. Children have to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and the guide will determine whether the sea conditions are suitable for children. PRICE INCLUDES: - 2 hour Kayak Adventure - Tour Guide - Kayak, Paddle, Buoyancy Aid - Instruction & Safety Briefing - Bottle of Water - £35 per person - £7 Wetsuit hire
