Discover Salcombe (Guided SUP Day Trip)


Discover Britain’s spectacular coastline by paddleboard. The perfect introduction to tidal paddling, with the chance to experience more exposed coastal paddling towards the end of the day.

Starting in Kingsbridge we’ll use the tide to help us on our route to Salcombe. We’ll share the sheltered estuary with a vast array of bird life (Herring Gull and Black-Headed Gull inhabit the lower shores and Gannets can be seen diving for fish beyond the sand bar at the mouth of the estuary) and if we’re lucky there’s the chance to spot seals or even dolphins.

We’ll pull our boards into one of many secluded coves for lunch before finishing our journey on one of Salcombe’s yellow sandy beaches. From there, if the weather is suitable and and you’re keen, there’s the chance to leave the shelter of the estuary and experience a short taste of more exposed coastal paddling.
