If your greatest water-based excitement involved Mr Matey mounting a sneak attack on Rubber Duckie then this Big Deal will be an eye-opener.
Brought to you by Action Adventure Activities near Stirling, this paddle sports experience would make an outstanding gift.
Lasting approximately one hour on the water, it is available for one person, two people or a family (one adult and three children or two adults and two children), meaning it could be a group present too.
A great introduction to kayaking, canoeing and the very hip sport of paddle boarding, your trip is based out of Action Adventure Activities’ farm at Ardmore.
The area’s spectacular landscape of mountains and lochs provides an atmospheric backdrop for this experience.
You will be shown the basics of the different sports, with guidance from an expert instructor.
Based deep in Braveheart country on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Action Adventure Activities have spent over 30 years in the Scottish hospitality industry and the staff have a wealth of experience in numerous outdoor pursuits.
Safety is their prime concern so, when you take to the water, you know you are in good hands.
Paddle boarding is a variation on the traditional Pacific sport of surfing. In this sport, stand up paddle boarders remain upright on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water.
The sport is on the crest of a wave in the States, where this traditional Hawaiian activity has become an outdoor pursuit as popular with hipsters as it is with families.
With this offer, you will be able to learn canoeing and kayaking skills from the experienced instructors while enjoying the scenery from a new perspective.
There is a minimum age of eight for this Big Deal. All under eighteens must be accompanied by a participating adult.
All craft, wetsuits, buoyancy aids provided.
