A splashing time with Coquet Shorebase Trust

Why not get afloat on the lake at Druridge Bay Country Park?  Thanks to a grant from the  Banks Community Fund, we will have stand-up-paddleboards available for hire this summer, as well as the sit on top kayaks and Open Canoes.  This includes a couple of extra large ones, which take six people!

We hire out wetsuits as well, so it doesn’t matter if you fall in.    It’s always best to contact us by email or phone first to check availability.

The Junior summer holiday programme runs at the lake throughout August, with sailing, paddling and windsurfing on offer – either half a day (£25) or a full day (£40).   Adult windsurfing tuition is also  available.

Wildlife tours of the Coquet Estuary

At Amble we are running regular tours of the Coquet Estuary – there is a wide choice of canoes/ kayaks / sit-on-tops  (singles and doubles) to suit anyone from a complete beginner to the more experienced.   Your guide will lead the group up past Warkworth to the Hermitage (with the rising tide), and then we float back on the ebb.  There is wildlife to spot and we talk about the history of the river and how it has changed over the centuries.

Special events;

Sat August  6th  Paddleabilty at the Lake (Druridge Bay Country Park)  – an opportunity for people with disabilities to enjoy going afloat in specially adapted canoes/ kayaks.

Ask us about booking a group session, private tuition  or joining the Canoe Club / Windsurfing Club or Sailing Club for regular activity at affordable prices!  All ages from 8 to 80 (or older!!)
