Group Adventures‹ Home
Looking for a fun and memorable experience for a special occasion? We have spent many years perfecting the ultimate weekend for a group of adventurous people who are keen to enjoy each others company in a stunning wild environment.
We take care of all the logistics so you can relax and enjoy a weekend of good wholesome adventure away from the crowds. If you’re planning a stag or hen do and want to do something unique and more meaningful than a bog-standard bar crawl then you’re going to love this!
The aim is to enjoy being in the wild in comfort and our camps are fully catered with lots of delicious food.
A typical program…
Arrive at our fantastic woodland base camp (click here for more details) at a time that works for you; most groups aim to get to us for about 17:00 or 18:00 but if some of your party can’t make it until later that’s no problem at all. From the parking it’s a 10 min walk through the woods to the camp and your nearest neighbour is a farmhouse over 2 miles away. This is the perfect location for a group who wants to have their own private gathering and you can sing songs around a roaring campfire late into the night.
After a filling hot breakfast, you’ll pack all your supplies into your Sea Kayak and head out on a journey along one of the UK’s most spectacular coastlines. You’ll find a remote beach for the camp where you can watch the sunset over the sea and enjoy another campfire.
Wake up for a swim in the sun and then paddle back along the coast to Dartmouth. You can finish at whatever time works for you but most groups aim to be off the water by mid-afternoon.
We provide everything you could need to be very comfortable for the 2 days. As well as your kayaking kit we also give you all the camping gear that you’ll need: tents, inflatable camp mattresses, head torches, cooking equipment. We give you as many dry bags as you need to store your personal evening clothing and any other gear you want to bring.
FOOD AND THE MENU
One of the highlights of your trip will be the delicious food. It’s all prepared by Kay who before joining the Sea Kayak Devon team spent many years working as head chef at an exclusive wilderness expedition centre. Everything is homemade to order and to the highest quality. Putting together a feast on a beach is great fun and our kayak guides are all experienced expedition cooks. They’ll be there to help organise the cooking and the setting up of the camp; they will also help you learn new tricks for living in style in the wild!

WHAT DO I NEED?
You can turn up in shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops and we’ll sort the rest!
However to get the most out of your trip please bring a warm set of outdoor clothing for the evening, a pair of shoes or sandals that you don’t mind getting wet, a sleeping bag (we can lend you one if you don’t have your own) and a bottle of your favourite wine or beer!
We provide all the camping gear but you are very welcome to bring any cool gadgets, penknives etc. of your own.

HOW MUCH CAN THE KAYAK CARRY?
The beauty of travelling by kayak is that weight does not matter, in fact, it can often make it feel easier and more stable!
There are approximately 120 litres of dry storage in each kayak (a big expedition rucksack is about 90 litres). In addition to this, there is about 50 litres of non-watertight storage on your deck and in the kayak cockpit. Remember the hatches to the dry storage compartment are not big so you can’t put a big rucksack directly into the kayak. We provide you with as many dry bags as you need for your personal gear.
