Mai Adventures operates from the Tamar Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty straddling the county border of Devon and Cornwall. We love our adventures out on the river and along the coasts, and enjoy having the freedom to explore these beautiful waterways on our paddleboards.
Paddleboarding is accessible to everyone and is the perfect way to escape from the stress of everyday life. We would like to help you experience the same natural high and enjoy time on the water.
Our founder Mel is an experienced Paddleboarder and a qualified WSA instructor, and holds the SLSGB Surf Coach Safety and Rescue Award.

SUP promotes a holistic approach to health and fitness; it is calming and soothing to the soul whilst providing a workout that increases core strength and improved balance.
Paddleboarding is for everyone and is an excellent way to get fit, tone up and feel great.
