Why not organise a team building day with a difference, the best school day out ever, a stag/hen/birthday party to remember or a getaway with family/friends?

Stand up paddleboarding or SUPing is a great way to explore the ocean and surrounding areas with a completely different perspective to swimming or kayaking. Think of it as a surf board that comes with a paddle for the best of both worlds! SUPing is a great workout from toes to shoulders, testing your balance and coordination in a way that connects you with the water like nothing else. Take in the scenery and have a relaxing float in calm waters or test your skill amongst the waves and stunning geology on the most versatile, rewarding and addictive craft around. It is a skill you’ll want to work on again and agai

What could possibly be better than going for a SUP? Grabbing a group of your mates or joining a new crew and having the craic on our GIANT 18ft SUP that’s what! We are stoked to introduce our latest addition, the MAMMOTH SUP, designed for up to 8 people it’s perfect for group days out, stags/hens, birthday parties, fundraisers or any old excuse for some fun.  There are various themed options and locations available: River journeys, GIANT surf, Coastal tours, Party Paddles, Summer Schemes and more.

What better way to get your dose of “Vitamin Sea” than a Coasteering Adventure with us, we deliver you the best coasteering NI has to offer. Our Coasteering trips offer a bit of climbing, scrambling, swimming, jumping, sea level traversing in an eco-adventure playground. It can about rock-hopping, shore-scrambling, swell-riding, cave-exploring and, yes, cliff-jumping. But it’s as much about discovering our wildlife and coastline at close-quarters; an intimacy that walkers never experience.

Our flagship and most popular Kayaking tour to Elephant Rock comprises a short lesson on the basic skills of paddling within the safe confines of the harbour or beach. We will then head out as a group, hopping along the coastline, through channels, lagoons, a cave and pass by our Coasteering course as we head towards the famous Elephant Rock. Here you can relax and soak in the sights and sounds of the environment. Yu may even spy the cows on White Park Bay.

Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge Kayak Tour - Do you want to experience the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge like never before? You may have looked down from above, but how about looking up from below? How about checking out some sea caves or maybe even catch a wave? Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife with dolphins, porpoise, seals, sea birds and even basking sharks spotted in the area.  Our 3 hour kayaking tour is an experience like no other. Come for a paddle with our fully qualified and experienced guides who will show you beaches, caves, cliffs, islands and the main attraction from a different perspective. Learn about the history and heritage along the way.
