Stand up Paddle Boarding In Northern Ireland

Have you been looking to try Stand Up Paddle Boarding while in Northern Ireland? Then you need look no further than Islandmagee SUP. They are situated on a beautiful part of the coast in Islandmagee only about 20 minutes drive from Ballygally Apartments. Islandmagee SUP offers Stand Up Paddle lessons and guided tours in Portmuck, Browns Bay and Whitehead.

What you will see

There are many great beauty spots to be seem on your paddles and some of the views are simply breathtaking. For example the beautiful Isle of Muck which is situated just off the coast of Islandmagee. Thousands of seabirds nest on the Isle of Muck such as fulmar, shag, razorbill, guillemot, black guillemot, and kittiwake. Most of the breeding birds nest on the seaward side of the island, so are difficult to observe from the shore. But, with a bit of patience and luck, you should be able to see all of the birds that nest here as they fly to and from the colony. The waters offshore are also one of the best places in Northern Ireland to spot harbour porpoise and dolphins. Common and grey seal are also regularly sighted.

Many people who start Stand Up Paddle Boarding simply want to try something that bit different and very quickly become hooked. You can progress from the Beginners Course to the SUP Cruiser Course after some practice and of course all the Stand Up Paddle Board Tours are extremely popular. Tours include:

  • Lighthouse SUP & Supper
  • Guided SUP Tour – Portmuck & Browns Bay
  • SUP Guided Tour – Blackhead Lighthouse
  • Guided SUP Tour – The Gobbins
