Roseland Sailing and Water Sports
With more coastline than any other county, it's not surprising that sailing and watersports are in huge demand in Cornwall. Roundhouse Barns are ideally placed for you to enjoy the best sailing and other water sports that Cornwall has to offer.
if you're looking to explore the coastal waters of the area and perhaps combine this with some fishing, Fish & Trips of St Mawes is well worth looking at.
Four miles away, the Mylor Sailing School offers courses ranging from 1/2 day to 1 week for all levels of sailor. There's also the Loe Beach Watersports Centre that offers sailing, power boating, windsurfing and kayaking tuition and hire. Close to home (in Percuil), there's also Roseland Paddle & Sail. As their web site right says "The best way to experience the beauty of this peninsula is by water and it provides some of the best sailing and canoeing areas in the country".
For those seeking a few more high speed thrills, you can either share with other couples or enjoy a private charter on a luxury power boat cruiser.
If seeing dolphins, seals, basking sharks and sea birds close up interests you, a 2-3 hour trip with Orca Sea Safaris is a must - we've been and thoroughly enjoyed our trip!
For something a little more sedate, you can always hire a sea kayak for 2-3 hours. Look no further than St Mawes Sit On Kayaks. Mark, who runs the business has recently purchased a brand new purpose built RIB licensed for 8 passengers. This can be chartered for mini-cruises or as a water taxi, dropping you off and picking you up from secluded beaches or pubs/restaurants on the shoreline.
For more extreme water sports, head to Watergate Bay and book into the Extreme Academy for some pulse racing activities like traction kiting, kite surfing and wave skiing.
Finally, for a gentle cruise up the Fal River, Enterprise Boats linking Falmouth, Truro and St Mawes, is an ideal way to enjoy a great day out. You can also combine this with a visit to the gardens, gallery and restaurant at the National Trust's Trelissick Garden. Alternatively, why not disembark at Tolverne and grab a bite to eat at the famous Smuggler's Cottage with its D-Day memorabilia. Fal River Links also provide a host of local river trips as well.
