Experience the winter night sky with a hot chocolate to hand
We are offering a Moonlight tour by kayak as a season opener in collaboration with superb The Causeway Lass Tour boat.
On Saturday 3rd March we will lead a kayak trip on the Lower Bank River under the night sky. The Causeway Lass will be on hand to provide warm drinks, craic and TLC to give this winter paddling experience a cosy lining.
The night sky over the winter months can be dramatic, especially seen from the perspective of a river like the Lower Bann. Our kayak tour typically starts around dusk and includes the passage through twilight and often a beautiful sunset.
As the sun sets, the moon rises, and catching the large rising moon in winter can be an awesome sight. Recently a customer on one of our night-time kayak tours commented:
“The nature surrounding us – from the sunset in the sky, to the river, the estuary and the night sky – they were the real highlights. It was utterly unforgettable”
The moonlight kayak tour takes place in a stable double sea kayak which you can share with a partner or friend, with enough room to relax and take in the night sky. The journey is approximately 4km in length between Coleraine and the bar-mouth near Castlerock.
The tour has been rated 5 *s on our Trip Advisor and Facebook pages. Our regular Moonlight Kayak tour goes out once every month. You can look forward to a cosy reception on The Causeway Lass, providing support and comfort to our kayaking group on board their vessel. A hot chocolate, blanket and warm welcome is waiting for everyone on the tour where the moon and star gazing can continue.
The Lower Bank provides a sheltered tidal environment perfect for a riverine tour under the night sky. The area contains abundant wild-life, some of which come out after dark and if we are lucky will embellish the experience of the tour.
