Things to do in Plymouth | Plymouth Hoe Activities


Plymouth Watersports

One of the best ways to appreciate Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City, is from the water. There are plenty of opportunities to dive in and enjoy the sea, from boat trips to paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, and rowing.

Mount Batten Watersports and Activities Centre

You can enjoy a vast range of activities at Mount Batten Plymouth. From sailing to stand-up paddle-boarding and kayaking to multi-adventure days. The Centre also hosts Kayak Tours – explore Plymouth Sound from the water and see the City’s historical and picturesque waterfront from a different perspective. The Kayak Tours last for three hours or five hours and start from just £32.50 per person.

Plymouth and Devon Schools Sailing Association

There are a range of sail, paddle and powerboat activities at the Plymouth and Devon Schools Sailing Association. They can be found near the iconic Mayflower Steps. The Plymouth Sound provides an excellent environment for all levels of ability. Their calendar is full of exciting ways to have fun, learn or try something a little different.

South West Stand Up Paddle-Boarding

Based in Royal Williams Yard, South West Stand Up Paddle-boarding (SUP) offers tuition and paddle-board hire. They are very popular with families, stag and hen groups and for team building activities. They offer two-hour or half-day sessions for beginners to try out this popular activity. It may look relaxing, but it’ll give you a whole-body workout and help improve your balance too. You can even take a Drake’s Island SUP Tour. It is 2km in total to the island and back. 

Aquanauts Dive Centre

The Aquanauts Dive Centre is located at Sutton Harbour. Plymouth's diving is some of the best in the country. There are more wrecks per mile of coastline around Plymouth than anywhere else in the rest of the world, and as such the diving here is extremely varied. From gentle reefs to stark remarkable drop-offs consisting of granite boulders and cliffs falling away to extreme depths.
