You can use a variety of open Canadian canoes that you paddle tandem or solo to give you a real taste of adventure you will be taught the vital strokes needed to control the canoe so you can fully enjoy the scenery and relaxing atmosphere of the quarry.

For the slightly nervous or more team orientated groups two Canadian canoes can be rafted together to create a boat suitable for 4-6 people to paddle, these cannot be capsized and are ideal for races, moving around and playing games in and generally having fun if you fancy a wilder session!

All Canadian canoeing sessions can be tailored to meet your needs whether you would like to learn skills and techniques that can be progressed in the future, possibly to one of our open water adventures or weather you simply want to splash around, play games and get wet!!

Raft Building

Raft building is a technical challenge as well as a challenging team building activity; test your construction skills as you tie knots, lash barrels and wood together.

Work together to create a raft to accommodate all of your team and that is strong enough to face the challenges ahead!

Once your raft is launched onto the quarry, watch as the other team’s raft disintegrates while the teams paddle to reach their destination. Rescue that ‘damsel in distress’ and race back to victory. Will anyone stay dry? Will your raft stay in one piece? Are you up for the ultimate team challenge in Cornwall?


Windsurfing is a sport of fun and enjoyment. Once you can master the basic skills after successfully completing basic training, you will be able to do windsurfing on your own.

You will enjoy the freedom when gliding on the surface of water and the romance of "flying" alongside with seagulls. It will also give you lots of excitement and challenge. When you are blasting on the water, the speed will pick up with the wind and the feeling is so wonderful that you cannot beat it.

Various courses are available from a full day learning to windsurf for groups or families. Spend the morning learning the basics and the afternoon enjoying new-found skills.

All kit is provided but suitable footwear is required.
