Guided Kayak Tours

Join us on one of our guided Kayak tours exploring the best that South West Cornwall and The Lizard Peninsular can offer.

We have various launch spots and areas we can paddle which means if the conditions are rough on one side of the Lizard its calm on the other, allowing us to run trips year round.

Using the latest and safest kayaks and equipment, no matter your skill level, after some quick instruction you will be away.

Choose your Kayaking experience, all abilities catered for.

Vertical Blue Cornwall, Kayak Day Trips

Sit on Top Adventure

Enjoy the thrill of Kayaking

Single kayaks £45pp

Double Kayaks £30pp (£60 total)

These trips cater for the complete beginner through to advanced paddlers as we challenge your comfort levels along the way.  If you wish for a leisurely paddle along the coast we stick a little further out to sea, while the more adventurous can follow our team of British Canoeing Guides as they explore in and out of the rock gaps, caves and gullies along the way, even with a little surf onto secluded beaches if you would like to get the heart beats racing!

Vertical Blue Cornwall, Kayak Expeditions

Sea Kayak Adventure

Explore the Cornish coast

Half Day £55pp.    Full Day £85pp

If you would like the next step in Ocean Exploration then a Sea Kayak Adventure will be for you.  Using our new fleet of modern Sea Kayaks these much faster craft will have you covering more ground along the way so we can lap up the stunning surroundings from the safety of your kayak seat.

If its just a taster your after then a half day coastal tour is available but the best way to experience a Sea Kayak is to head out on a full day tour, packing your lunch in the boats for a secluded beach stop on one of our full day adventures.

Vertical Blue Cornwall, Kayak Tours


We had a fantastic time sea kayaking with Ian. Great kayaking and local knowledge. We highly recommend a day out with Vertical Blue!


We did a sea kayak tour and had a great day. Equipment including wet suits and helmets was all provided. Our guide Ian explained what to pay attention to when paddling in the open sea and showed us some beautiful little spots along the coast.


What a brilliant session sea kayaking with Ian and Sean! My wife and I took out a double kayak along with another family group. Ian was really professional, great briefing and attention to safety; we felt comfortable throughout. A bonus to learn so much about the coastline and local history too. Would highly recommend Vertical Blue, regardless of prior experience.


We had an amazing time sea kayaking with Vertical Blue Cornwall whilst on our family holiday in Porthleven. Great experience for a young family our son Alfie loved it. Beautiful setting from Porthleven harbour. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an adventure.


A magical overnight kayaking trip... feel more confident kayaking, had fun and we met dolphins! Ian is a warm, trustworthy, knowledgeable and patient guide - we will be back soon I hope for more
