ACTIVITIES

Funded under Axis 3, through North East Region, the project enabled the building and purchase of a rigid inflatable boat capable of carrying four passengers and two crew in order to offer facilities not presently available in NI.  Mr Stewart also plans to open a second operating base in Glenarm Marina to offer a commercial tourism operation offering mainly training and educational trips.
