It really is a question of looking before you leap on the Lizard, though. The world is fast learning that high-octane exploration is not always compatible with protecting the wilderness. It’s now well documented that motorised sports like jet-skiing are contributors to marine pollution, but did you know even an excited scream or a careless trample can significantly disrupt precious ecosystems?
Adventure, and without harming nature
Worry not. A spot of adrenaline-fuelled fun is even headier when it is guilt-free, so with the core belief that the best way to get the most out of nature is to impact upon it the least, we work alongside outdoor activity providers to allow you to go wild in the wild.
Every activity offered by Lizard Adventure
, from coasteering to learning survival skills, works with and not against the rich and rare landscape so that the flora and fauna can continue to thrive uninterrupted.
Kayaking on the Lizard
So, you want to know what a respectful but riotous time on the Lizard looks like? Let’s start with kayaking. Claire, a qualified marine biologist, will meet you at the tiny Mullion Harbour – which still supports a small fishing community - and kit you out with helmets, buoyancy aids and sit-on kayaks. Once suited and booted, the sheltered waters of the historic cove are the perfect introduction to sea kayak safety. Hand signals and man-overboard procedures addressed, the wider sea awaits. Scalloping the cliff edge, Claire will teach you how to navigate narrow rocky passages and catch a gentle wave.
