Rock sailing & Water Ski Club are situated on the Quay at Rock and there is a thriving sailing school and ski school both operating from further along the each near the pontoon; boats can be hired for all water sports, as well as for fishing and bird watching.
The Black Tor ferry runs from Rock to Padstow all year round during daylight hours and there is a Water Taxi available. Out of the water Rock offers a range of shops for all your holiday needs.
