From the basic need for drinking water through to the strategic potential of bridges and water travel, rivers have been of vital importance to humans throughout history. With CBK Adventures you can experience the human love of water up close on many of the North East of England’s waterways, and even the mighty river Tyne.

CBK provides adventure experiences throughout the North East, with kayaking at sea and on the river and stand-up paddleboarding experiences being highly popular. If you prefer exploring the coasts, they also offer coasteering – like orienteering, but on the coast. This is a full-spectrum experience of rock hopping, shore scrambling, cave exploring and cliff jumping for the adventurous.
