Water Sports in Torquay
Water sport activities for all the family in and around Torbay. Water sports to suit everyone are available throughout Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. Watersports are the perfect activity for an active birthday party for any age. The calm waters and gentle currents of Torquay’s beautiful bay make it one of the best water sport locations in the UK, particularly for beginners.
Sailing is particularly popular, as Torquay has one of the best bays in the UK for learners and salty sea dogs alike. August is a busy month in the boating calendar, with the Fastnet race and the week-long Dartmouth Regatta drawing in sailing boats from all over the world.
Let a scuba diving instructor take you out to the deep blue sea so you can swim with the fish. You can also give some extreme sports a go including kite-surfing, wind-surfing and water-skiing. If you’re a beginner surfer, the calm waters of Torquay are perfect for finding your feet on a board.
If you prefer a gentler pace of life, hire a pedalo and go for a gentle bob in the ocean, or you could even hop on an organised boat trip and try your luck at fishing. Even if your love of water sports is limited to a quick paddle in the waves, you can swim safely in Torquay.
