Sea Kayaking - Sugar Sands

Sea Kayaking - This is year on year favourite, we meet on the beach, get you kitted into a nice warm wet suit before heading off to explore the cove reefs and caves that this stretch of coast line has to offer. if you feel adventurous there are some jumps to enjoy and there is usually plenty of marine life around. Its not unusual to see seals or dolphins as well as sea birds diving and fishing.

This takes place at Sugar Sands, one of Northumberland's best kept secrets, near Longhoughton. We meet near the gate as you come onto the seafront. We will introduce you to the kayaks, most are tandems and all are sit-on top, making them safe and easy to use. Then is down to the watersedge for a quick lesson on how to paddle and information about the trip. We will be on the water for about 2 hours, but please allow 3 hours to get in and out of kit.

Our season starts on the 1st March and finished on 31st October.
