Here’s some feedback from our customers about their experiences out on the water.

Boys in kayaks

The best experience in Scilly. We were so well looked after. We will be back! next year for sure. Loved it.

I had a fabulous day kayaking at St Martins. Great service from St Martins Watersports who made sure I came on the best weather day of the week.

Kayak on Ganilly sandbar

Wow, we had the most beautiful morning. The whole experience was brilliant. We kayaked to a stunning sandbank and around some of the east islands. Will definitely do this again when we return and would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you for a fantastic experience.

We hired a double kayak for me and my partner for 3 hours when we visited St Martins. It was one of the best experiences we have had. We had a lovely welcome from Adam who was very accommodating and friendly. I could not recommend St Martins Water sports more - they were very safety minded, giving out maps, safety equipment and reassurances to us as visitors to the Islands.


We were very impressed and felt very safe, looked after and cared for. The kayaking experience was just magical - kayaking out to the Eastern Isles is a must - we had the opportunity of remote islands all to ourself and encounters with seals in abundance that will last a life time. Thank you SO much for making our holiday so special - would whole heartedly recommend. Keep up the good work you are doing with safety and ecological considerations to ensure continued enjoyment for locals and your visitors alike.

What a perfect day! We hired two kayaks and paddled out to Little Arthur where we had a picnic with only three Atlantic Grey seals for company, watching from a distance. As the tide dropped we paddled to an exposed sand bar and felt as if we were on a desert island. It was magical. 

If you’re visiting St Martins and want to get out onto the water I would highly recommend hiring from St Martin’s Watersports. This fantastic company is run by Anna and her friendly and helpful team. They are super organised, with great communication, and based in the most magical location at St Martin’s Bay. This is a beautiful part of the Scillies to explore.

We had an incredible day SUPing on St. Martin's. Really good communication from Anna who called us the day before with a weather update. She gave us some options for making changes if we wanted to due to the weather, so the flexibility was great. Overall the day was amazing. Weather was super warm but a little windy so we had to stay in the bay, which was not a problem at all for us first timers and we spent the full 3 hours on the water having the best time. I'd recommend a wet suit if you are pathetic like me!

We hired double kayaks and paddled out from the beautiful Par Beach on St Martins and around the eastern isles. We landed on Nornour and walked to the top of the hill, from where there is the most glorious view. As we paddled, seals appeared and watched our progress - it was amazing.

Everything about this was great. The online booking is easy, the welcome on the beach and explanations of the area and the equipment were clear and friendly.
We will be back to do some more next year!

Excellent service and very enjoyable kayak trip. We hired them for 2 hours which gave us long enough to briefly land on the eastern isles and then head over to the sand bar (only there at low tide) and have lunch. Would have been good to have longer and spent more time exploring the other islands. Beautiful day and beautiful place to explore.
