We offer a range of adventure activities mostly on water (open canoeing river and sea kayaking and surf kayaking) but also on the rocks (single pitch rock climbing) and trails (mountain biking and hill walking) of North Northumberland and work with clients elsewhere in the UK, the West coast of Scotland is a favourite of ours.

As a long established provider we have bags of experience and lots of qualifications and also hold a three year Adventure Activity License that allows us to provide adventure activities to unaccompanied under 18’s. We can ensure you get a safe, enjoyable learning experience suited to your specific needs.

The next Sea Kayak Gang (SKG) Trip is going to be on Sun 26th June. This is a guided trip somewhere suitable on the North Northumberland coast or Southern Scottish Borders coast. We look at planning and running a safe day trip based on those signed up and it is an opportunity for anyone who want to improve their independence on the sea. Please email for further information and give us a brief summary of your paddling history so we can let you know if it will be suitable. The June 26th, Aug 28th and Sep 25th trips are more suited to paddlers with less experience although you should be happy being rescued and put back in your kayak and be happy to continue with the trip so some experinece of rescues required. We run trips for more experienced paddlers in the Autumn and winter months.

Please feel free to browse the website by hovering your cursor over the headings along the top or in the top right corner to get other drop down menus that you just need to click on to get the information you need before deciding if we are the right people for you to come to. If you do want to contact us to book an adventure or for further information please use the contact form (not always working unfortunately) or email directly or go through Facebook messager if that suits you better. We will try to respond as soon as possible but I do head away to work occasionally in remote places with no signal or connection.
