Small groups allow us to view nature without disturbing, displacing or damaging it and even more importantly our aim is to leave the beaches, coves and other marine environments we visit in a better condition than when we arrived. We encouraging our visitors to collect and taking away at least one piece (or more) of plastic pollution every time we land

The coastline of the UK has been described as it’s last great wilderness and South Devon has some of the most spectacular and varied coastline of all.

Torbay has sheltered waters, sandy beaches and rocky coves. If you are interested in wildlife the river estuaries (drowned river valleys known as Rias) of South Devon are the places to visit. Seals, Cormorants, Little Egrets, Kingfishers, Herons and a wide variety of seabirds are seen as you paddle or drift along with the tide in amongst the reed beds and remote side creeks.

The South Hams coastline, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, has a rugged coastline, sea caves, headlands and exposed cliffs for the more adventurous. No doubt you will spot seals and if you are lucky Porpoise, sunfish and dolphins and in recent years humpbacked whales have become welcome visitors to the coastline during the summer months
