Activities & Venues

Our range of activities take advantage of the great venues we operate in. Our home base is just 80m from Cullercoats Bay. If you've never been here before, it's a stunning little half-moon cove providing a great place to master many of our activities. Surf awaits just around the point on our neighbouring beach, Longsands. Souter Lighthouse offers access to dramatic cliffs and coastline, whilst the lakes at Bolam Country Park and Cragside offer fantastic sheltered water in the heart of Northumberland.
