Ready for something a bit different? Hotel meeting rooms and sandwich buffets have their place, but not at Cullercoats Bike & Kayak. Make your next away day or team building event a day to remember with our top-notch outdoor activities. Our professional and qualified guides will encourage you to work together to learn new skills on the water, take a short journey on the sea and club together to complete challenges and games that will test your team-working, communication and management skills. You can take part in kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, coasteering or a mix.
Ready to give it a go?
Our two-hour flat-water kayak session is the original CBK experience. Our guides will show you a few skills in Cullercoats Harbour and take you on a journey along the coast, exploring bays, harbours and caves. Then it's time for a challenge or two if you're game. Stand on your kayak and practice your gondolier, try a bit of improv kayak raft building or see if you can 'portage' from boat to boat.
Ready for something a little more extreme? Get into the white-water and surf the waves on one of the UK's top 10 destination beaches for surfers. Our qualified surf guides will show you the ropes, catching waves, top turning, bottom turning, edging and more. Before you know it you'll be taking off and riding the green waves. Surf Kayaking is way more accessible than surfing as you don't have to master the jump-up, just stay seated and hold on!
Stand Up Paddleboard
Get involved in the world's fastest growing water sport. Stand Up Paddleboarding is cool, ridiculously cool 'nuff said. Our expert coaches will have you on your feet in no time, then we'll get you out there exploring, maybe ride a wave or two and throw a few team games, races or challenges in too. If you want to mix it up, we have individual boards and our super-stable Team SUP too, so everyone can get involved.
For smaller groups of 6-10, or as a great add-on to any other package, try Stand Up Paddle Boarding on our TEAM SUP! Our Fly XL board is the only one of its kind in NE England. So much fun, this beast of a board is ideal for getting groups pulling together and for team games too.
We have 10 beautiful hybrid bikes that are ideal for a bit of coastal exploration if you're not interested in getting wet. Let our founder and ride leader (Simon), take you on a day trip along the Northumbrian coast, or go it alone if you prefer. We can even bring a picnic too. You can cycle from Cullercoats, or we can head out further afield using our cycle transport partners. Our favourite itinerary is 42 miles from Craster to Cullercoats on National Cycle Network route 1.
All sessions include at least two hours on the water. Our max group size is 16 on a single activity, or 32 if we mix it up a bit. For groups of less than 6, ask about our standard group session rates.

Active Workplace Activities
It is estimated that you will spend one third of your waking life at work, which is why we're supporting local businesses to increase the levels of physical activity within their workforce. The Active Workplace programme is a series of six after-work or weekend sessions, introducing you to the sport of kayaking.
We have worked with clients such as the NHS, Accenture, Proctor & Gamble and Komatsu to deliver Active Work Place programmes that promote healthier lifestyles amongst employees. Programmes are co-ordinated and part funded by local community sport partnership, Tyne & Wear Sport. For more information, visit their website or call us on 0191 251 9412.
We'd love to be part of your employee discounting and incentive scheme. We already offer great deals to residents of Cobalt & Quorum Business Parks and the Department of Work and Pensions (via the HASSRA intranet page).
Typically offers are 15% off during peak season but we often run flash promotions such as buy one get one free on guided sessions and lessons. If you'd like to add us to your employee discount and incentive scheme, contact Simon via 0191 251 9412 or use the contact form below.
