There's something for everyone at this activity centre at Swanpool, for all ages and abilities.
Our daughter (6) joined in the kids club in the Easter holidays and loved it. Even when she felt a little challenged to kayak on her own, the staff found an alternative for her, enabling her to join in. The staff are super, very knowledgeable, approachable and fantastic with the kids. Safety is a priority and the equipment is good quality. We also went on a family kayaking tour with an instructor. Simon was very reassuring, great fun and gave us a fabulous morning. Highly recommended.

ps: don't make the mistake of hiring from 'grumpy Pete' who hires out Kayaks from the outlet next to the bouncy castle on the beach - he's nothing to do with Elemental and has sub-standard equipment and an unfortunate manner!

We researched a number of watersports activities available locally and are so glad we chose Elemental UK Watersports, Swanpool, Falmouth.
Did a morning Kids Club initially in case the 7 and 12 year old weren't that struck; however they were soooo wanting to go back and do a full day, we paid the £30 each as we were confident they would be happy and safe with the friendly, competent and fully qualified staff.
All queries by email were answered promptly and the staff were very patient with my numerous additional questions (I take my guardianship duties very seriously).
The boys want to do full days next year and we will be delighted to take them. Coasteering was probably their favourite activity; they did it twice which is no problem (we were offered to request an alternative on the 2nd attendance) but the boys were happy to take pot luck on activities which are inevitably determined by weather conditions, numbers attending and staff available - ratio is one staff to 8 children.
Highly recommended! Great value for money and a break for the grandparents too!

My grandson Oscar, who is staying for his holiday with us near Falmouth, went for a half day kids' club session this morning and loved it. Great instructors, no safety worries AT ALL. Kayaking, beach games and coasteering. His verdict 'Awesome - can I do a full day?'
We'll certainly be booking again, and highly recommend.

My wife booked a day of activities for us with an instructor. We started with sailing with Nikoli who was a great and took us out into the bay for an hour. We then had lunch at the cafe which was good and reasonably priced. In the afternoon, Martin took us coasteering which we reached by kayaking to the cliffs. This was an amazing experience with the cliffs to ourselves throughout. Martin showed us the best and safest way to traverse the cliffs and jump into the water, we felt safe at all times while having a great time. We finally went on paddle boards which was also under instruction from Martin who offered helpful advice throughout. Overall, I would without doubt visit elemental again in swanpool bay and recommend to everyone who wants a fun, safe experience.
