5 Top Stag Do Water Themed Activities

We are going through a very hot spell of weather, and if you're looking for a cool down for a last minute stag do or or for next summer, here are some water based stag do ideas for you to wet your whistle with (I think that means to have a drink, but you know what I mean).


White Water Rafting

An obvious choice but also an incredible one. Travel down the river taking on frothing water, dodging huge boulders and 9 times out of 10, getting chucked in by the raging torrents, so if you can't swim, do not book it.

This is one of our most popular stag do activities in 2017, favoured locations are North Wales and Scotland.




Canoeing Down River Wye


Another very popular stag do activity however this activity lasts the whole weekend. Sleeping under canvass and floating down river with an amazing backdrop of gorgeousness this is canoeing and camping down the River Wye.

How it works:

Friday night; park up and pitch up at your camp site which has a shower block and toilets and is next door to a pub, yes next door to a pub!!

Saturday Morning; you'll get picked up and taken up river to a pebble beach where you'll depart for your campsite, it should take you just about all day with a stop off at several pubs on the way down. You can also stop off at Hay on Wye for lunch!

Sunday Morning; set off in your canoes from your campsite to your agreed meeting point where you'll disembark, call your driver who will take you back to your campsite.

Take down camp and back to normality.

Why don't we depart and pitch up our tents both nights at different campsites on the way down river?

I promise you, I have done both ways and by far, this way works best:
  1. You only have to put your tent up once
  2. You don't have to carry loads of stuff in your canoe each day
  3. You have a campsite with a shower block and a pub!

Canyoning / Coasteering

Canyoning (inland), jumping into deep pools walking behind waterfalls, exploring caves and generally exploring a gorge carved out by a fast flowing stream.

Coasteering (on the coast), jumping off high cliffs into deep rock pools, exploring caves and the rugged UK coastline.

As you can see, both activities are very similar except for where they're done. They are full on and exceptionally exhilarating.

Canyoning can be done North and South Wales, Scotland and the Peak district.

Coasteering can be done in Newquay / Cornwall, South Wales and near Bournemouth.



Jet Ski-ing

Combining a motor sport with water (what a fantastic idea), these jet ski's are so exciting you will need a crowbar to get the boys off them!

They're fast, have fantastic manoeuvrability and the feeling you getting zipping across the water, you'll all be buying trailers to bring one home!





Surfing

We have some of the best beaches for surfing in the world, yes the world! Down in Cornwall they very rarely get a day when there aren't loads of waves crashing into the shoreline, making it the most ideal place to surf.

With long sandy beaches, great nightlife and bucket loads of hotels, Newquay is an amazing place to have a stag do and learn to surf.
