Attraction Information

Both beginner and experienced kayakers are welcome at The Outdoor Shop and Kayak Hire. With kayaks available to hire from an hour to as long as a full week, whatever kind of adventure you want can be yours!
Don't panic if you've never set foot in a kayak or on a stand-up paddleboard before. With an ex-HM Coastguard trainer and a fully qualified paddlesport instructor on staff to give you tips and guidance before you set off, you'll be well-prepared.
With a choice of single or double kayaks, older children can kayak in a separate boat and younger children can sit safely with parents as you paddle around the gentle waves of Combe Martin bay. There are plenty of hidden coves to explore and secluded beaches to discover!
Wetsuits can be hired so you don't need to worry about buying any essentials before setting out into the water. If you enjoy the taste of kayaking so much you want to learn more, The Outdoor Shop and Kayak Hire also run lessons, tasters and guided tours suitable for children, families and larger groups.
Located just 50m from Combe Martin beach, and with incredible expertise available, this is a fantastic place to start your kayaking adventure.
