  • An absolute gem. Karen and Dave are such fabulous and knowledgeable hosts, and there were some great facts along the way. They genuinely care about the estuary and are passionate about its conservation, running a bi-annual 'River Clean Up' event. To top it all off, a nice cup of tea and one of Carol's scones in the Boatshed makes it one of my favourite things to do in Cornwall. Highly recommended.
  • Booked a last minute river tour with encounter Cornwall and were very well looked after by our guides, sharing there local knowledge of the area,it's history and the delights of the village shop halfway round. Thoroughly enjoyable would recommend to both experienced and novice kayakers. Thanks for a great morning.
  • We had a fantastic afternoon with Encounter. Instructors were helpful and did everything they could to ensure everyone had an enjoyable day. We went as a family of four with another couple. They had single kayaks and we had a couple of doubles. After a good briefing we headed out on the water and down toward Fowey. We saw oysters, mussel beds, egrets, herons, oyster catchers, but our day was topped off by a visit with the local harbour seal - Serena. However, for me this was topped by the delicious home baked cakes for sale in the cafe. I recommend trying their cream tea picnic. This is a 'must do' activity if in the area. Our kids (8 & 10) thought this was the highlight of their holiday, desperate to go back soon.
  • Lovely place to take to the water - and you couldn't be in better hands. We were novices - and left wanting to do it all over again.
  • The REAL Encouter Cornwall, this is the company you want for an amazing experience from a reputable company. Look out for imposter companies that don't provide the same high levels of care and consideration
