Sea Shanties and Cave Access
« on: January 31, 2021, 02:21:06 am »
Was wondering what sea caves are generally accessible, easy to reach and so on, whether by boat or beach and without a 999 call if the tide gets you later
Due to some bug that's going around my inflatable kayak is stuck in Cornwall at a relative's house and I'm not, so there we are. I don't even have bottle of rum in stock, so pretty dire!
When the bug goes away more boaty stuff around the South West (and South East) might be a possibility (not necessarily kayak) and sea caves investigation seems like an idea, but I'm not up to speed in what's out there cave wise. (I do have a few RYA certs so I'm not a complete loony).
Anyway to set the mood I'll start with:

There are lots of mines that are accessible by kayak around these parts (west Cornwall). I think Wheal Devonshire would be a fun exchange trip - one party abseiling in and the other meeting them in the sea cave with the boat! It'd need to be relatively calm though, and timed sensibly with the tide for maximum explorable sea cave.

Not a shanty, but an old favourite from Cornwall ...

Old ... but not old enough to know any better
