Trip Description


 

Northumberland offers world class sea kayaking in one of Britain’s best kept secrets, a truly magical county offering rugged coastlines, hidden history and incredible wildlife. We have sea kayaked there for many years exploring caves, circumnavigating Holy Island and surfing North Sea Swells. With the Farne Islands located just off shore home to a large seal colony, puffins and guillemots and plenty of other bird life.

Northumberland and the coast of Berwick Upon Tweed is famous for the artist Lowry to visit and capture stunning coastline and remnants of the industrial era. We will aim to explore a series of stunning paddling locations including:

  • Holy island and Lindisfarne – on previous trips we have enjoyed sharing the sea with Dolphin
  • The Inner Farne Islands – home of the resident seal community, puffins and guillemots
  • Caves and Arches – off the North Berwick Coast
  • Castles and history with the Tweed Mouth viaducts, Bambergh Castle and other historic locations

Our qualified and experienced coaches will provide plenty of help to improve your paddling skills, keep you safe and make sure you experience this beautiful part of the world as fully as you can.

  • Paddling tuition and guiding from experienced professional instructors
  • Sea kayaks – single and doubles
  • All paddling equipment
  • Breakfast and evening meals in camp
  • Camping fees

  • Lunch for each day

Trip Itinerary

The trip will be based from a local campsite and we will pick paddling locations to fit with the weather and conditions to maximise our adventure.

No experience necessary however we will move participants subject to conditions and experience including selecting the best location for the weather, using double kayaks to provide a more stable ride and also spending time coaching the basics of sea kayaking.

This is without doubt one of our favourite locations to sea kayak around the UK with clear and stunning waters, majestic wildlife and plenty of history to enjoy. This is your chance to join our instructor team on a bucket list trip of a lifetime.

Meeting Place – Berwick Upon Tweed, Tweedmouth
