Kayaking in Fowey

Vertical Descents offers Kayaking in Fowey River estuary. Take a nice mellow paddle up the river or down the estuary with one of our kayaking guides. 

Our sit-on-top kayaks can be used for scenic wildlife estuary tours or for riding the waves. We have single and two person, rigid, highly manoeuvrable sit-on-top kayaks.

We will teach you how to enjoy them on flat water and progress you out into the open water of the Fowey River.
