One could not wish for a more perfect morning to launch the boats today. It isn’t always a low tide for launching, it requires a little more effort to prepare. For some reason today, the extra effort required by the guides just melted away when the sun warmed the beach.
And the reward really came later, when the perfect launch was met with another wonderful paddle along the Mevagissey coastline.
Everyone likes something new on their summer holidays. Well, book your Mevagissey guided kayak tour now and be the first to paddle our brand new fleet of kayaks. We’ve got doubles, singles, blues, oranges, reds, greens and yellows. How very stylish your summer holiday photos will be this year.
Canoe Cornwall is expanding it’s business this summer 2021. The Mevagissey guided kayak tours office will be opening it’s fleet of sit-on-top kayaks to families, friends and corporate bookings from 2nd August 2021.
What a great set of lads we had this weekend on an awesome stag celebration, full of high jinks and humour throughout the day. Everyone has to have a taste of the wildlife before they get married and for this lucky chap the boys decided to treat the groom to an epic day of Archery, Axes and Canoes fun in the forest and creeks of the River Fal.
A big thank you to all those who attended our fun and rewarding canoe day picking rubbish from the banks of the Fal, and to all those unrecognised others who do this every time they go out.
Of course our once a year Fal litter pick isn’t enough to keep the pristine environment of the River Fal free from rubbish. Our aim however is to win the hearts and minds of other water users and visitors to not let that crisp bag fall out of the pocket or drinks can to float away with the tide.
Our latest activity ‘Spear-throwing’ will be unveiled at the Port Eliot festival in July. Below you can see the specially made spear heads made by the very talented @studiogimli. They’ve fashioned the first batch of spearheads to compliment the axe throwing sessions @porteliotfestival this year.
He has created some superb arrow heads in the past but these are truely wonderful! Can’t wait to attach some Ash to these and give them a go! Thanks Daniel! #spear#blacksmith#ancientweapons
And of course no spear head at Canoe Cornwall is complete without an Ash stave. Below is our first hand-whittled stave that will again feature at the Port Eliot festival, alongside axe-throwing and archery.
Port Elliot festival had its highlights, and here is a cherished one, shared to us from the Port Elliot website from our 2018. The creek on the Anthony House grounds is quite marvelous when the tide is in.
The scorched banks amd people swimming serve as a reminder of what a wonderfully warm summer 2018 was. Thank you Lisa for sending this to us.
What an adventure the Vikings were at the Port Elliot festival. Along with their Viking ways came Axe-throwing. It has to be the most satisfyng feeling in the world to see your axe spin through the air and embed into the solid Oak target board.
If you are interested in having a go, ask before booking your next Archery session and we can bring them along for a spin. If you have a party or stag/hen do coming up, get in touch about our mobile axe throwing activity.
Off to the Port Elliot festival again. This time I’m going to advertise properly, except I didn’t get down to the printers in time. Who needs expensive advertising when you can DIY! Lol. Should of paid more attention in art classes!
