Stunning Kayak tours

Come and try one of the fastest growing water sports in a stunning and easy access location. 

What can you expect? 
Your fully qualified kayak instructor at our Alive hub situated at the West Strand beach, Portrush. You will be fully equipped with all necessary safety equipment whilst working in-line with social distancing protocol.
Once geared up we will then make a short (approx. 5-minute) walk from our Alive base around to Portrush Harbour where you will be fitted to a specific kayak for the duration of the session. After a quick warmup and familiarisation with all of your new equipment, your instructor will detail an important and necessary safety brief to ensure a fun, safe session is had by all.
Then it’s time to hit the water! Once afloat your instructor will coach you in a few of the basic strokes to keep you moving in the right direction. As your water confidence grows, we will look to play games and set lots of optional challenges for you to have a go at in order to refine your new skills, whilst staying close to shore. To finish, (weather permitting) we will end with a short journey around Portrush Harbour/West Bay to put those new paddling skills to the test and continue the fun!
What do I need to bring with me?
All specialist equipment for the activity is provided but we do ask that participants bring the following…
Change of clothes
Extra footwear that can get wet, for example trainers or wetsuit boots. Please no flip flops as we want something that covers the whole foot.
