The family coasteering route is right on our doorstep in Croyde at Baggy Point. Beginners and families will enjoy this route. It has something for everyone. Explore large jumps and small jumps, as well as exciting caves and gullies.

Family stand up paddle boarding is avilable on our inland lake, on the Crow Point estuary and when sea conditions allow on Croyde Bay itself. 

You will learn to stand up and use your own personal water craft.

It’s a fantastic activity for younger children that gives them a sense of independent adventure and control over their SUP.
