Bday party & just for fun!

 Amie's Birthday Party was a Sea Kayak Trip from Laxey Beach - beautiful calm conditions : )

"Ah brill cant wait to look through these pictures! Had a brilliant day - everyone loved it!
we all have the kayak bug now so we will probably see you soon :)

The groups who went Coasteering, just for fun also explored on the East Coast of the Isle of Man...
The water has been lovely and warm - feeling even more so as its matching the air temperature today! : )  Keirron

Basking Shark off Peel...

We sea kayaked from Laxey Beach on Sunday, leaving the West coast for a couple of days...
sheltered from the NW wind and some ideal rock hopping opportunities. Pasties are pretty tasty at lunch time too! Cloud formations on the East Coast are very photogenic, an ideal backdrop to the rocky coves.
Congratulations to the Adventure Club members who passed their BCU 1* Award!
we used one of our sheltered Coasteering routes as well yesterday...

... getting a different perspective of the Isle of Man! Good to see things from different angles.
The folks loved it, and were asking about ages for family groups - our Coasteering sessions are tailored to the group's ability and desire : ) Our 'Caves n' Coast' family sessions have been very popular this summer. The sea is at 15 degrees at present, and holds its temperature well into autumn...

ps. Got a message from Dee, who had been Coasteering the previous day;
"Amazing day Keirron thanks a million, look forward to the next one!!"
"...Basking Shark by the Castle if your around keep an eye out for it.."

Sunset Corporate Evening Paddle

Coach Development earlier in the afternoon used the bay to analyse strokes and soak up the inspirational surroundings, and then...
As the 400th Blog posting since starting the Adventurous Experiences Blog, its fitting that it should be capturing a stunning evening paddle off Niarbyl Beach - with a fresh wind and great company : )
Katia's famous flapjacks made the break on the beach even more special...

Double training round the Calf

We took Katia and Alice out with us in the 'Mighty Triton' double kayaks this afternoon, round the Calf of Man, so many seals about at the moment.... finding a few waves to play in along the way. A few shrieks were emitted, and then "can we do it again"?!! 
Got back in time for Outdoor Circuit Training at Ballabrooie - running Thursday evenings at 6:30pm every week : ) The girls joined in with the session, and will be regularly attending form now on...
Gearing up for a mighty double adventure in the near future...
