Falmouth Bay SUP Tour: This is Gylly Adventures’ most popular SUP tour and it easy to see why. You will explore caves, gullies and stacks, investigate mysterious shipwrecks. Gylly is a ‘Blue Flag’ beach and the perfect venue to learn the basic paddle boarding strokes and gain confidence before setting off. Wildlife encounters are common with jumping fish, friendly seals and soaring sea birds. With such blue water it can be hard to believe you are in the UK. (Please note this tour starts and finishes on Gylly Beach)

Falmouth Harbour SUP Tour: Falmouth’s greatest asset is its deep and sheltered harbour. Mariners throughout the centuries have long regarded Falmouth as the “First and Last Port” for ships crossing the Atlantic seeking shelter. The harbour’s significant history and stunning views make it a fascinating place to go Paddle boarding. It is protected from prevailing SW winds, which means the water is smooth when the surrounding coast is choppy.

Starting from the Greenbank Hotel Pontoon, you will visit the picturesque village of Flushing, the old Falmouth Harbour and the Maritime Museum. You will have the opportunity to paddle alongside huge boats that give you a totally new perspective of scale.  The wildlife is wonderful too, with seals and sea birds a common sight. Anyone below the age of 18 yrs must have a parent / or guardian accompany the child on the activity. Minimum age limits for Paddle boarding is 9 yrs.

Booking onto this trip will give you a 10% discount card for the Greenbank Hotel Restaurant if you fancy some food afterwards.

River Helford Tour: The best way to explore The Helford River is on the water.  A paddle board is the perfect craft to enjoy the serene, un-spoilt estuary that stretches from Falmouth Bay up to the old port of Gweek.

The River Helford is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ancient oak woodlands line its banks and Kingfishers perch on the overhanging branches. Dolphins, seals and oysters can be seen too if you have a keen eye. The Helford River is one of the most sheltered stretches of water anywhere in Cornwall and this makes it a magical venue for paddle boarding. Anyone below the age of 18 yrs must have a parent / or guardian accompany the child on the activity. Minimum age limits for Paddle boarding is 9 yrs.
