Sea kayaking, paddleboarding and coasteering are just a few of the activities on offer from their base in the UK’s most southerly harbour and fishing village of Porthleven in South West Cornwall.

Expeditions play a large part in not only sea kayaking but also any form of adventure activity at Vertical Blue.  With over 12 years of experience working in the Antarctic to draw from which culminated in a winter expedition with Sir Ranulph Fiennes, we can cater for all kinds of trips and requests for exploration and adventure on the water in sunny Kernow and beyond!
