Have fun in the water while learning how to canoe
Canoeing is a great fun activity that encompasses many aspects of canoe sport, beach games and pier jumping, and we might even have a belly flop competition at the end! The session can be used as part of an educational programme and is even on the national curriculum for P.E. Paddling skills can be taught to high levels and certificates can also be awarded.
We can run canoe session at different locations around the Mournes such as Carlingford lough, Castlewellen lake, Albert basin – Newry Canal. all fantastic locations with amazing scenery.
A great activity for all types of groups from family, school, youth and sports groups. We can also do canoeing for corporate team building days.
Kayak sunset sessions are back for 2023!!!!!
Each week during the summer months June, July and August we run kayak sunset sessions on the amazing Carlingford Lough. It is run from Rostrevor slipway behind the Pier,
The sunset sessions will be run every Monday and Wednesday evening 6pm – 8pm (weather dependant) and will be £15pp (charges may apply when booking online). The price includes hire of all equipment (kayak and paddle, wetsuit, buoyancy aid). To help speed things up if you can arrive wearing your swimwear under your clothes to allow quicker changing time so you get more time out on the water.
We encourage people to walk down to the slipway as parking is extremely limited so to try and reduce your carbon footprint, leave the car at home and enjoy the stroll OR if you park in Kilbroney Park at the forestry building (red building on the right hand side as you dive up into the park) it is only a 4 minute walk down to the slipway.
Each session will be run by fully Qualified staff and we will also have a safety boat on the water for each session. Ages from 8+ under 16 to be accompanied by an adult.
Booking is essential for each evening and we will operate on a online booking system. To book your slot please follow the link below and select your date.
