Canoeing / Kayaking

Discover new waters
with BAC

Find your Giant Adventure in the heart of Belfast and beyond.


Select from a range of different watercraft and go paddling down the River Lagan. We run our sessions from The BAC Boat House which is at Shaw’s Bridge. 

In Nature

BAC can also deliver canoeing and kayaking in Castlewellan Forest Park or work with you to deliver a longer term programme discovering Northern Ireland’s beautiful water. 


BAC work with groups of all ages and abilities. Whether it is for a longer term programme, a team building session, a tourist visit, or a day out with family and friends, BAC can cater for all of your outdoor adventure needs. We pride ourselves on pouring passion into every session and ensuring that people from all walks of life have the opportunity to reap the benefits of achieving something new in the outdoors.

Personal Development

At BAC, we are deeply passionate about the personal and social development of young people and everyone who visits our outdoor centre. We build in active learning to every session and ensure that whilst having fun, you also have an opportunity to work on building confidence, communication skills and overcoming barriers.


BAC has extensive experience in supporting people with a disability to take part in canoeing and kayaking both at BAC’s Boat House and out in nature.


All BAC instructors who deliver canoeing and kayaking hold industry standard qualifications and have extensive experience. 


The minimum age is 8 years old. 


It is no problem to take photos at BAC, so long as everyone in your group is happy to be in a photo. We would ask that if you are posting to social media that you tag us. If you don’t have a camera, you can request that a member of our team take a photo and send it to you following the session. This will be at the instructor’s discretion.
