Glide with the Tide

A unique way to discover a beautiful marine environment and its riches - taking out a kayak is an amazing way to explore Strangford Lough. Down at water level, you are in tune with the tides, the outdoors, the sea.

Dates are available to book online with no minimum number at £89 per person or you can book you own private sea kayaking and food tour (3hrs) at a time to suit you for a minimum two people. If the pre-arranged dates don't suit and you want to join a group (maximum six people) let us know - we hope to add more dates if there is enough demand.

Gliding softly along brings you closer to the lough’s wildlife, including seals and wild geese. If you are lucky in the morning you may encounter otters. Beginners are in safe hands with John Hubbucks, a kayak expert who has taught many people, of all abilities, to paddle. He also knows Strangford Lough intimately and can help you explore its crystal-clear water, islands and inlets. To top it all, he is a trained chef and, if the tide and season is right, he will take you foraging for mussels which you can cook together and enjoy with a local Irish whiskey cream sauce.  In summer months when you can't gather mussels you can still enjoy an amazing Irish Smorgasbord with some of the finest foods from local Strangford producers.  Please note we are using traditional Northern Ireland foods and it really isn't vegetarian friendly.  If you have special dietary needs, please do contact John before booking and he will discuss options.

Suitable for all abilities, incuding beginners - aimed at adults but 16 or 17 year olds may join in if accompanied by a responsible adult.  If you want to bring younger children please contact us to arrange a private booking at info@mobileteamadventure.co.uk

 

What to expect

Meet at The Lightship at Ballydorn, (at the Down Cruising Club, near Whiterock, Killinchy), and enjoy a relaxing paddle on the beautiful Strangford Lough for roughly 3 hours of paddling depending on weather conditions. You will stop off on the way on the island to enjoy a range of Northern Ireland speciality foods, which might include foraging for and cooking mussels if it's the right time of year.  You will be looked after by John - a very experienced instructor who greatly enjoys sharing his love of sea kayaking and knowledge of Strangford Lough.

Wear warm comfortable clothing, and bring a change with you, just in case. A waterproof jacket is recommended to keep you comfortable if you are splashing.  Social distancing will be maintained, though I'm sure you will appreciate that if you need someone to give you a hand they may need to be closer than 2m to help.  We ask that anyone who has symptoms of Covid-19, or lives with someone who does, stays at home.  Vouchers will be issued for use on another occasion if necessary.  Equipment that cannot be easlly cleaned down will be set aside for at least 72 hours between users.
