Paddle along Pembrokeshire's secluded coves and sandy beaches with our guided tours.


Both a listed designed landscape and an internationally important nature reserve, Stackpole is a stunning place to canoe and kayak. It’s located on Pembrokeshire’s coastline so you’ll be paddling along its secluded coves and historic quays. Hire a kayak and take one of our guided tours or bring your own if you like.
