Visited this as part of the Adventureland weekend and would be quite happy to take a return trip and recommend it as the lough can be so changeable with the tide and the seasons. Nice to see the tidal turbine at close range as well. The trip would make a great combination for families along with a visit to Castle... More

This was the best 45 minutes I have had in ages. The speedboat ride around Strangford was fun, exhiliarating and very informative. We saw whirlpoos and seals which added to the whole thing. My family, including my 2 children, loved the whole experience. Andrew from Clearsky has to get a special mention as he was brilliant - friendly and fun... More

Had a great time on the sea safari. Thankfully the weather was absolutely amazing so this made it even more enjoyable. Saw some seals and plenty of birds. Got a great introduction to the water of Strangford Lough and would recommend this to anyone wanting a short (about an hour) activity to pass an afternoon. Plenty of other nice things... More

Also included was bike hire and archey. The pricing was reasonable and the accommodation was great. I have to admit I was dubious when we set off for our activities as I never... More

We booked in for a full activity day for my sister's 30th. I've been once before and enjoyed my days kayaking, so I was interested to try out the other activities. I was a tad underwhelmed to hear that our canoeing had been cancelled due to poor weather and substituted for mountain biking! However, it turned out that this was... More

The centre has a variety of acticities to offer, we decided to do a half day mountain biking. The bikes were great, and the trails were nicely varied, well sign posted and reasonably accessible. The staff were very helpful and friendly and it is a beautiful location to pass a day in the fresh air.
