I did look at this list and wondered what I would like to take part in and being a beach lover and enjoying anything to do with the sea such as Kayaking and surfing then it would have to be the Snorkeling and the low tide walk. I have done a little bit of snorkeling and found it quite a weird experience but really enjoyed it and will persevere with it.

Another very well known and followed event in Looe is the famous Duck Race which is taking place on Sunday August 21st where around 5000 ducks are floated down the Looe river from the Bridge to the lower ferry steps.

Throughout the year they have been selling the numbers on the ducks to raise money for charity and it a great spectacle watching them jostle and swim down the river with lots of cheering and shouting.

Maybe you would like to organise one of your own or if its just a duck for the bath then I think you will find all kinds of ducks you would like in our shops or on our site, from our Giant Duck to the very funny Creature Rubber Ducks.
