Bowman Yacht Chaters

Make a Splash this Summer with Watersports in Cornwall

Got a taste for the wild side? Cornwall offers spectacular watersports ready for you to dive right in and experience exhilarating waves and stunning scenery. Chartering a yacht through Bowman Yacht Charters gives you the freedom to explore this incredible coastline as and when you choose – and act as an ideal diving board to use at your will!

The north coast may hold the bigger surf spots, but the Falmouth area on the south coast has so much to discover, with activities that are perfect for the whole family. If you’re looking to try a new sport, the more sheltered south coast is the perfect place to learn, especially for a family with young children. Watersports in Cornwall are also a fantastic way to see the local wildlife up close, and catch a different view of the coastline.

Here are just some of our favourite activities to make the most of the gorgeous Cornish summer.

Kayaking and Canoeing in Cornwall

Cornwall offers amazing places for kayaking and canoeing, whether you’re into a smooth, gentle explore through the water, or chasing a wave and getting competitive with your friends and family. Discover hidden little caves around Swanpool and race to the buoy and back (but do make sure you’re careful of the current).


The enormously popular stand-up paddleboard is available at many locations on the south coast. As with kayaking, you can choose whether you’re after the adrenaline rush of tearing through the water or a chilled out glide-along by standing, kneeling or sitting on your board. And with waters this clear, you’ll be able to see right down to the seabed, spotting friendly fish and if you’re lucky, some of our resident seals may pop up and say hello.

Raft Building

For the adventurous, creative, and the generally pirate-like those of you who want a proper Cornish experience, give raft building a try. Create your raft using materials and objects supplied and test your raft making skills by racing your friends and seeing who can stay afloat the longest!

Whether you’re after a day trip, or looking to explore for a while longer, we can help you experience the thrill of a lifetime in Cornwall, making those memories that stay with you forever.
