Improving surfing and Learning English

Adventurous Activities

Improve your English Language and enjoy adventurous activities. At Babel Fish we discovered that learning English doesn’t have to be limited to the classroom. Learning is immersive.


At Babel Fish we specialise in surfing. Alex has been instructing and coaching for over 15 years, working with both complete beginners and intermediate surfers who wish to improve. Cornwall is blessed with a variety of quality beaches, so we can usually find somewhere to get in the sea regardless of the conditions! All equipment is provided.


An exhilarating way to see the coastline. Students meet with our professional guides who kit them out with all the equipment needed, give them a safety brief and take them off to traverse and jump! We go Coasteering along the Gannel Estuary and near Towan Beach, it’s great fun.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP)

SUPing is another great way to see the coastline. Sometimes we go out from Crantock beach and paddle around the headlands, often seeing seals and other sea-life; other times we head down the Gannel Estuary for a more tranquil experience. Alternatively we will Sup from Towan Beach to Porth Island, taking in the the beautiful coastal scenery on the way.

Beach Games

Compete with other nationalities on Towan or Fistral Beach. Volleyball, football or tug of war.


The ten-pin bowling alley is situated at The Hotel California, overlooking the Gannel River. Discover who is Lord of the Pins.
