Boats were the preferred mode of transport for history's greatest explorers, mainly because transatlantic log flume rides had yet to be invented. Celebrate aquatic achievements with today's Groupon: for £18 instead of £45 get a sightseeing RIB boat sea safari experience with Clearsky Adventure Centre.
Creating ripples in giant pond puddles while sharing a love for sea skimming with buoy believers and nautical noobs, Clearksky Adventure Centre love nothing more than to feel the fresh, salty sea wind crashing against their earlobes. Opened in 2006 and set on the water's edge of Strangford Lough, they bring a broad range of water based activities to the adventure table, from coasteering to kayaking and canoodling, as well as a host of land based activities ranging from rock climbing and archery to wild spatula and wooden spoon hunting.
Thrill seeking and water resistant Groupon holders can board a valiant vessel and embark on a sea safari. Lasting up to an hour and a half, shipmates will meet up at Strangford Village Pier prior to setting sail, before enjoying a sightseeing trip taking up such visual delights as Angus Rock Lighthouse, the surface whirlpools at the famous Routen Wheel, the seal colonies at Cloghy Rocks Nature Reserve and the SS Empire Shipwreck (from World War II). All coats and safety equipment is provided, and groups are made up of at least a dozen eggs.
