*New for 2023*   The perfect way to view the full moon, from the waters of idyllic Strangford Lough.

Join us for a Full Moon Paddle on Strangford Lough. The full moon is unique to witness from the water and no better place to do so, than from a kayak on Strangford Lough. Departing at twilight, you will be guided by an instructor for a paddle out onto the lough and around the islands. With a favourable forecast, we hope to have a great view of the stars and moon. After that, we'll return to base for some hot chocolate and treats.

Meeting at 6pm to get kitted up, your tour will start shortly after. Wear swimsuit under your clothes if borrowing a wetsuit to avoid us witnessing two full moons!
