LOCATION:River Foyle, Derry~Londonderry
Your adventure experience will begin on the banks of the River Foyle, where your local guide and experienced instructor will teach you the basics of paddling and kit you out with everything you need to get out on the water.
Travel with the water along the tidal section of the River Foyle (Feabhail in Irish) moving up or down river depending on the time of day and the tide. This experience will provide a full flavour of the maritime history of the area and includes a fresh seafood lunch from the award-winning street food outlet Pyke N’ Pommes.
Your local guide will lead you below three dramatic bridges each with its own story dating as far back as 1790. Right until today, the story of the river re-uniting a city by a Peace Bridge remains a significant tale. There is lots of sea-life to spot along the way and it’s not uncommon to spot a friendly seal at a safe distance enjoying a bask in the sunshine. For those out on the water at sunset (the golden hour) you will experience a truly magical moment as the light reflects off the still water before returning to the river bank.
