The sit-on kayaks are a colourful way to explore the delightful waterways from ethnic harbour of St Mawes. Mark and his team are friendly and helpful. We had a great day paddling up Percuil Creek.

Always a highlight of our trip to the area is going out for a 'blast' with Mark on his Rib. The children (3 and 6) love it and we do too. Highly recommended.
