Glide with the Tide Experience

Join us for a luxury experience like no other & Glide with the tide!

Glide with the Tide Experience, sea kayaking and food tour on Strangford Lough

Glide with the Tide is the ultimate luxury experience and is a unique way to discover a beautiful marine environment and its riches whilst having a bespoke food tour. Taking out a kayak is an amazing way to explore Strangford Lough. Down at water level, you are in tune with the tides, the outdoors, the sea.

Gliding softly along brings you closer to the lough’s wildlife, including seals and wild geese. If you are lucky in the morning you may encounter otters. Beginners are in safe hands with John Hubbucks, a kayak expert who has taught many people, of all abilities, to paddle.

He also knows Strangford Lough intimately and can help you explore its crystal-clear water, islands and inlets. To top it all, he is a trained chef and, if the tide and season is right, he will take you foraging for mussels which you can cook together and enjoy with a local Irish whiskey cream sauce completing this luxury experience with a food tour of the best of Strangford Lough’s produce.

Don’t miss out on the amazing Irish Smorgasbord with some of the finest foods from local Strangford producers.
