Quite possibly the best way to experience the Tyne, the very landmark that Newcastle is famed for, these Quayside kayaking tours launch from the NE1 Newcastle City Marina and take you on a journey down the iconic river! Paddle beneath the bridges, soak up the summer sunshine and snap pictures of the Quayside in a whole new light.
CBK Adventure's Tyne Bridge and Quayside Kayak Tours are the perfect summer experience that offer a totally new perspective of Newcastle!
Tours always start with a quick kayak skills lesson on the water so you get a feel for the boat. Depending on the tide and the flow of the river, you'll head east to the Millennium Bridge and Ouseburn or west towards Dunston Staithes. Your guide will interpret the cityscape as you paddle with occasional stops for tales of the city and to take pictures.
All equipment will be provided (except footwear), so you should consider bringing the following items with you:
Closed toe footwear that you don’t mind getting wet (eg. wetsuit boots or old trainers)
Clothes you would typically wear for fitness activities, appropriate for the day’s temperature and weather
Towel, dry clothes and dry shoes to change into
On warm days, water for hydration and sun cream to protect your skin
