On the water


The sea and our rivers aren't just there for looking at. Get out on it! Boats can be hired; fishing trips can be booked, hardy souls even swim in the sea in January, while the Yorkshire Coast is fast becoming a magnet for surfer dudes.

If you'd like to have a go at watersports check out our Events Programme and look for East Barnby's Holiday Adventures. These include lots of watery fun for anyone aged 9 and above, from canoeing and kayaking to gorge scrambling, surfing and sailing. Many of the area's activity providers also offer courses.
