About the tour
City Paddle Boards
From: £40 to £100
Our 2 hour City Paddle Boards tour is a superb way to unwind. Catch top tips on the sweet art of SUP on the way. The activity is suitable for individuals or small groups up to 10 people aged 16 yrs and above.
Of course the tidal estuary of the famous Feabhail (pronounced fyauil) or Foyle River flows through the city. To the north is the Atlantic Ocean and to the south, the heart of Donegal in historic Ulster. Your tour goes upstream or down with the flowing tide.
We provide all the gear you require for this tour. We even arrange for you to change into our wetsuit in your hotel accommodation if city-centre based. Take a 5 minute walk from the city centre to the river’s edge. Take a 2 minute taxi ride back. Contact us in advance to arrange a shuttle service or hotel changing into and out of your wet-suit!
Once on the water, you notice the silence immediately. Calmness emanates from the blue-way through the city. Paddle Boards are an ideal platform to experience this hush. You view nature up close in the middle of the urban centre.
The icing on the cake is a stop-off at Pyke N’ Pommes Street Outlet when you come off the water for a yummy taco (additional to tour cost).
Special twist: Take the Paddle Boards tour at night and experience the calmness of the city from a truly unique perspective.
Meet Our Instructors
I have been making the outdoors both my work and passion for over 10 years now- and every activity brings new people, new places, and new discoveries. What keeps me smiling is discovering the depth of Ireland’s natural heritage- and how people take to it so positively. I have been working with community leaders in Aotearoa/New Zealand for years to understand our own indigenous identity.
Robin is a director of the company and experienced outdoor leader. Specialising in environmental education, Robin is a proud home-schooler and spends a lot of time exploring the outdoors on a daily basis with his young family. He loves climbing and canoeing, always including some foraged food en route!
Shayne has a versatile and with a buoyant sense of humour, a people-person equally comfortable on the water, the hill-side or on a mountain-bike.
