About Coquet Shorebase Trust
Coquet Shorebase Trust is a water activity centre and we aim to make getting involved accessible for everyone. At our main centre at The Braid, Amble you can take part in canoe or kayak tours of the estuary looking at the wildlife, geology and history of the area from the water. We also offer powerboat courses so you can learn to handle a craft safely and receive a qualification. From our base at Druridge Bay Country Park, next to the visitor centre, you can hire kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, windsurfers and sailing dinghies to use on the lake. We are also able to offer dedicated instruction in both adult and children's activities Wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets are all provided and we have hot showers at both locations for when you come off the water. No experience is necessary for most activities but you do need to contact the office by phone or email to book so we can make sure that we can provide the best experience for you We look forward to welcoming you.

We did a tour on sit on kayaks. Andrew was a very friendly and knowledgeable local guide. Such a beautiful scenic river and very quiet. Interesting to learn all about the history of Amble and surrounding area. We were very well looked after. Would definitely go back for another go. Recommended.

We’re recommended to go here by Northeast Kayaks. Did an estuary tour on a double sit on Kayak. Had a nice introduction from Andrew our instructor and got kitted out. It was a fabulous way to spend a couple of hours. We saw some lovely wildlife and saw things from a different perspective from the river. Would thoroughly recommend for anyone to try. Thanks.

Really great instructor! And a very easy run - the river did most of the work. A lovely way of spending a couple of hours.

Eminently enjoyable afternoon out kayaking on the estuary under Leo's expert guidance, giving historic insights and wildlife / nature information along the way. Great experience, we couldn't have asked for more. It was my partner's birthday and to top an already super afternoon, she was even given a present of Leo! Everybody had a great time, we felt looked after and safe throughout.
