Sea Kayaking in Devon

Sea Kayaking in Devon

Our bases - Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth

Budleigh Salterton (above) is a small town on the coast of East Devon, 15 miles south-east of Exeter. It is situated within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and lies at the mouth of the River Otter, where the estuary forms an area of reed bed and grazing marsh which is an important haven for migratory birds and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Budleigh Salterton lies on the South West Coast Path, with cliff top routes eastwards to Sidmouth and westwards to Exmouth. The pebble beach and cliffs are part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. There is easy access to the M5 and mainline rail links.The picturesque town has a two mile pebble beach and safe, clean waters - a perfect location for our morning tuition sessions and the starting point for one of our day trips.

Exmouth is where the River Exe joins the sea. Known as the "Duckpond" by locals, it provides flat to choppy water where, in most cases, you will always be within your depth, thus making it another great place to learn and improve your kayaking. There are plenty of ammenities around Exmouth, including ample parking on the waterfront. The resort itself boasts fine gardens and parks, some dating from the town's Victorian heyday. A sea wall backs Exmouth's long sandy beach, behind which there is a wide promenade lined with shops, restaurants and pubs. In addition to Exmouth's suitabiity for watersports, it is a gateway for walking along the Dorset and East Devon World Heritage Coast.
