Salcombe Paddle Boarding - Stand Up Paddle Boarding - Tuition - Estuary tours - Kayak hire - Families welcome
At Salcombe Paddle Boarding, we offer tuition, estuary tours and equipment hire from our boathouse base at Port Waterhouse near East Portlemouth. We believe we have one of the best locations for paddle boarding in the South Hams. We’re easily accessed by car from Kingsbridge (parking next door) and passenger ferry from Salcombe (10 minutes’ walk away). We can also arrange to collect you by boat from Salcombe.
Most importantly, we provide tuition in some of the most sheltered waters locally that you’re likely to find.
During your time with us, we can show you some of the hidden gems of the Kingsbridge ria, many of which are only visible and accessible from the water – inlets, creeks and private beaches away from the crowds and home to many varieties of plants, birds and other wildlife. It is a magical world just waiting to be discovered.
Tuition and fees
Groups of 2 to 4: £40 per person per two-hour session
Families and groups of 4 plus: £35 per person per two-hour session
1-2- 1 tuition: £80 per two-hour session
All lessons include hire of our premium quality Red paddle boards, paddles, buoyancy aids and wetsuits if required
We also offer guided estuary tours which can be customised to your requirements. Please ask us for further details.
We can make special provision for coaching young children; at high tides, the pontoons below the boathouse form an enclosed pool, safe and protected from high winds – the perfect setting for little ones to gain in experience and confidence. If you have any other particular requirements, please let us know.
For more experienced paddle boarders previously coached by us, equipment is available for hire at an hourly, half-daily or daily rate. Please ask us for further details.
Your instructors, Denny and Marcus, are highly experienced in addition to over 20 years’ local lifeguarding experience between them. They have an in-depth knowledge of the local waterways and your safety and welfare is a top priority. Salcombe Paddle Boarding operates a licenced safety rib boat, its instructors are CRB checked, and are members of the International Surfing Association.
