canoesmile The Coquet Shorebase Trust is a community based charity located on the Northumberland coast at Amble.

We utilise water based activity to enhance the lives of people of all ages from 8 years old up over. As a charity we work with all sections of the community. A principle aim of our community activity is to help those who feel disenfranchised to develop the self confidence to become active members of the local community.

As a means to funding our charitable activity we provide water sports courses and training for all.

The Coquet Shorebase Trust has provided courses for over twenty years. But our history goes much further back.

We cater for all ages and we are registered with the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority.
