Sea Kayaking - Sugar Sands

Sea Kayaking runs from the Beach at Sugar Sands, near Longhoughton. The beach and the neighbouring bays coves and gullies are one of Northumberland's Hidden Gems.

We will meet you in the car park, kit you with wetsuit and safety equipment before going onto the water, where we show you how to handle your kayak. From there its out of the bay and time to explore the Northumberland Coast. We will be on the water for about 2 hours, but please allow 3 hours to get in and out of kit. We get to see lots of birdlife on this trip and from time to time see Seals and Dolphins.
