Stand up Paddle Boarding - River Coquet

We introduced Stand-up Paddle Boarding on the River Coquet in 2017, and have seen it grow to one of our most popular activities.

This trip is better suited to those who have little experience and takes place on the River Coquet from our base at The Braid Car Park.

The session includes instruction, we look at how to move safely and play games as we explore the river and estuary.

We will be on the water for about 2 hours, but please allow 3 hours to get in and out of the kit.

When do we offer Stand-up Paddle Boarding?

Our season runs from May to the end of October. As we now operate in a wider part of the river, the tide has an effect on when we run sessions. These are around high water, which varies every day. The calendar will show those sessions on any one day where we have sufficient water to operate in.

If you wish to book outside, this time, please contact us to discuss.


We will supply the boards and your wetsuit as well as safety equipment. In warm weather, you may wish to wear your own clothes, shorts & T-Shirts.

We suggest you bring footwear that you are happy to get wet wetsuit type shoes are ideal, and some snacks.

You will need a swimsuit under your wetsuit and a towel to dry off afterward.


The minimum age for this activity is 16 yrs old, but don't let the youngsters have all the fun, join in, it’s more fun if everyone enjoys the experience together.

We need a minimum of 2 to run a session if you are wanting to book only 1 person, please call the office so we can add you to a group that will run.
