Falmouth Coastcraft

Overview: Release your inner hunter gatherers! Coast craft is bush craft but specifically utilizing natural resources our shoreline can offer. Coast craft with Gylly Adventures is an entertaining and hands on experience, you may even leave confident with skills to at least survive a day the next time your mobile phone runs out of power. You will explore our coastline by kayak, foraging from one of nature’s most abundant larders, investigating the wild foods on offer. You will attempt to catch fish on a hand line, collect edible seaweeds, start a fire by friction and sample your cooked foraged foods. This is not military style survival; our Coast craft is a social activity suitable for everyone.
