Paddle boarding at Porthdinllaen

Unfortunately we will not be offering paddle boarding sessions in Porthdinllaen in 2020 due to the current Covid-19 situation.

Every Thursday and Saturday during Whitsun and the summer holidays we’ll be offering stand up paddle boarding sessions at Porthdinllaen. 

This is a great opportunity to experience this iconic location in a different way. The fun 1 ½ hour sessions will give participants the chance to get out onto the waters and paddle across part of the largest seagrass beds in North Wales, covering an area of 46 football pitches.

Learn about this fascinating habitat and the interesting wildlife it supports as you paddle. As well as spotting some signs of the rich history of this bay, which was once a bustling port welcoming ships from far and wide.

Sessions will run on Thursdays and Saturdays during Whitsun and the summer holidays at 11am, 1.15pm and 3.30pm. A session lasts 1 ½ hours and costs £30 per person, (there's a £5 discount for National Trust members).

During the session a qualified paddle boarding coach will provide all the necessary equipment including a Red Paddle Co boards which are really versatile and provide an excellent experience for beginners as well as the more experienced.
