How to Find Us

By Rail to Portrush

From Belfast

Translink operates a regular timetable, usually every hour or less between Belfast and Coleraine. You can find the schedule here, or use their app/website here. The journey from Belfast Central takes around an hour and 20 minutes through the Antrim countryside.

From Coleraine, you may have to change for trains to Portrush. Trains run every hour, and the journey takes around 10 minutes. There are two stations in Portrush. Dhu Varren, which is on the western entrance overlooking West Strand and Portrush Station in the centre of town. 

From July 14 – 21, there will be extra trains as well as extra carriages (allowing more people on) on the regular timetabled train services. The majority of the extra trains will be early morning trains from Belfast

By Bus

Translink runs several bus options for getting to Portrush the Causeway Rambler, Ulster Bus and Goldline depending where you are coming from.

When coming from Belfast, you can use the regular 218 Goldline (Timetable here) coach service from Belfast or 234 Goldline from Derry~Londonderry (timetable here). 

Both of these services arrive at Coleraine Rail and Bus station, where you can easily jump on theUlsterbus 140bus service to Portrush. 

By Car

Via Belfast

Follow the M2 towards Antrim. Take the A26 to Ballymena and follow the M2/A26 towards Coleraine/Portrush. On approach to Coleraine, follow the yellow (AA) and electronic signs for Public Parking.

Via Causeway route

This is possibly the best route to take to get to Portrush, clinging to the Atlantic coast from Belfast to Portrush, the Causeway Coastal Route is adorned with stretches of sandy beaches, picturesque fishing villages, rolling gorse-covered valleys and fuchsia-edged clifftop paths. Taking in the fantastic scenery from the car is incredible, but the other senses could be missing out! The sounds of the crashing waves, the birds soaring up above, the salty taste from the sea on your lips and the wind whistling past your ears – these are all part of this legendary land’s beauty.

  • All equipment provided:
  • Premium ION wetsuits
  • Premium Fanatic paddleboards
  • Premium carbon paddles
  • Premium Snorkelling Gear

Freedive NI do require that you have moderate fitness levels, fairly good breathing skills and generally good bodily strength to participate in most of these excursions - for your own safety.

Freediving, also known as apnea, is a captivating form of underwater exploration that relies on breath-holding rather than using traditional scuba gear!

Here's a list of things you might want to consider bringing for your adventure:

  • Sunscreen - Protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays, especially if spending extended periods in the water
  • Warm clothes and layers - for before and after you're in the water
  • Towel - Essential for drying off after your water activities
  • Water bottle - Staying hydrated is crucial, so bring along a reusable water bottle to sip on throughout the day
  • Snacks - Energizing snacks like granola bars or fruit can keep you fueled up for your adventures
  • Waterproof bag or dry bag
