A holiday is the perfect time to try your hand at something new.

We are bringing suggestions to you that you may not have previously thought about but which are possible during your stay with us.

Flight Experience in Cornwall

This Trial Flight Experience (or Air Experience Flight) at FlyNQY provides an amazing opportunity to take to the skies and see the world from a different perspective. Discover the stunning sights of Cornwall – from its unique coastlines, cliffs and beaches to its rural villages and towns.

This personal trial flying lesson starts with a full pre-flight briefing from a highly qualified and experienced instructor before being taken to your aircraft. During each air experience, you will be given the chance totake the controls of our aircraft, sitting in the captain’s seat in the cockpit. Under the supervision of your flight instructor, you will assist with the take-off and landing of the plane, as well as having the opportunity to experience handling and flying the aircraft – all whilst admiring Cornwall from this unusual vantage point. On completion of your flying lesson you will receive a personalised certificate providing the details of your flight.

Any time flown during a trial flying lesson can be logged towards both the EASA Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL) and the EASA Private Pilot Licence (PPL) – making it the perfect starting point for anyone interested in learning to fly!

Wildlife Boat Safari

Join Marine Discovery on their sailing catamaran, Shearwater II, for a unique marine wildlife watching adventure.

In 2013 Marine Discovery won the Responsible Whale and Dolphin Watch Operator of the year.

The diversity of the wildlife found in West Cornwall is what makes it special. Trips could encounter grey seals, various seabirds, or different species of dolphins and porpoises, enigmatic ocean sunfish or even giants such as minke whales, humpback whales, basking sharks and leatherback turtles!

Sailing gives you the most special encounter possible, the quiet meaning you can hear the splashes of the gannets as they dive and the whistles of the dolphins as they bow ride alongside us (check the videos).

Duncan, Hannah and their small team are completely dedicated to giving the best experience possible and are looking forward to welcoming you to Marine Discovery.
