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 or no experience and takes place on the River Coquet from our base at The Braid.

The session includes instruction, we look at how to move safetly 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 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 in any one day where we have sufficient water to operate in.

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


Equipment

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 for under your wetsuit and a towel to dry off afterward.


Conditions

The minimum age for this activity is 8 yrs old and we can take children without parents, but find 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.
