Watersports

You will discover that South Devon is the perfect location for the water sports enthusiast. For the energetic why not try your hand at surfing, kayaking or paddle boarding at Bantham or Bigbury. Salcombe offers boat hire for the experienced sailor and tuition is available for beginners. For a leisurely day sit back and relax on a scenic cruise from Dartmouth and enjoy the wildlife on the River Dart, explore Sharpham Vineyard, or Agatha Christies ‘Greenway’, you can even venture out to sea and discover the stunning South Devon coastline. Fishing trips can also be organised from Salcombe and the area has many private fisheries, alternatively tranquil fishing is available on the River Avon.
