Welcome to Surfside Kayak Hire and Tours - the number one activity on Trip Advisor in Devon with 600+ 5-star reviews, 2021 Travellers Award and 7 Certificates of Excellence!
Our kayak tours start with the one-hour guided mini tour. Suitable for everyone regardless of age or experience. Great for beginners and families with younger children. We have discovered through years of experience that for most young children one hour on the water is enough for them. Your kayaking adventure will begin at our shop where you will be introduced to your guide. After a short safety brief you will be fitted with your buoyancy aid and walk to the beach - which is 80 metres from our shop - where your kayaks will be waiting at the waters edge.
You will paddle out along the coastline heading to Mermaid Cove and onto Pirate Bay. We will point out all the points of interest along the way and bring you safely back to Combe Martin. Surfside tour guides are all experienced British Canoeing Qualified Paddlesport Leaders and full-time kayak guides. We are experienced at guiding families on the water, ensuring your safety and enjoyment.
