Looking for adventure activities with a low-risk factor? Try paddleboarding in Cornwall. Begin a two-hour paddleboard adventure from Blue Flag Gyllyngvase beach and sail past caves and gullies and investigate mysterious shipwrecks.

Falmouth’s biggest attraction is its deep, sheltered harbours which have historically been a shelter for transatlantic ships. Your trip will start from the Greenbank Hotel Pontoon past the picturesque village of Flushing and the Maritime Museum. Enjoy sighting a wide variety of seabirds. The river Helford is another major attraction for tourists and has evoked special scientific interest. Paddling under beautiful oak canopies adds an aura of mysticism to the trip.
