About

Taking out a kayak is a beautiful way to explore Strangford Lough. Down at water level, you are in tune with the tides, time of day and weather conditions. Gliding softly along brings you closer to the lough’s wildlife, including seals and wild geese. If you are lucky in the morning or late evening you may encounter otters.

Beginners are in safe hands with guide 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.

Don't miss out on the amazing Irish smorgasbord with some of the finest foods from local Strangford producers.
