We introduced Stand-up Paddle Boarding on the River Coquet in 2017, and it quickly became one of our most popular activities. Now we are excited to be able to offer it from a new venue at Craster, where we meet in our new changing rooms before heading out from the harbour and exploring the shoreline.
Who is this trip for? - Whether you've been on a paddle board before, looking to start paddleboarding, or are just looking for a fun activity for the day, this trip is perfect for you. The session will begin with Introductions with your guide, a chat about the board and equipment supplied.
Expect to be on the water for about two hours and allow an hour for getting in and out of equipment.
When do we offer Stand-up Paddle Boarding?
Our season runs from May to the end of October. Sessions at Craster will run on weekdays during school holidays with two sessions per day.
If you wish to book as an individual or a large group, or a date not shown, then 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.
Bring footwear that you are happy to get wet. wetsuit type shoes are ideal. We would also suggest a drink and some snacks.
You will need a swimsuit under your wetsuit and a towel to dry off afterward.
