Hop on this 2-hour kayak excursion and discover the Frenchman's Creek, inspiration for Daphne Du Maurier’s famous novel.
Frenchman’s Creek is a peaceful and stunning inlet off the Helford River, which offers a rich array of sights from the kayak.
Your adventure starts from Budock Vean Hotel private beach, from where you Guide will lead you towards the Helford Passage, passing sailing boats and banks of ancient oak forest. Paddling across the The Helford you enter Frenchman’s Creek, the inspiration for Daphne du Marier’s novel ‘Frenchman’s Creek’. The serene surroundings on calm waters are amazing with shipwrecks and secluded beaches situated on the creek. On sunny days there is an opportunity to swim in the soft waters of the creek, before paddling back to Budock Vean.
All equipment is provided including wetsuits, buoyancy aids, water, kayaks and paddles.
