3 Hour Scenic Trip

Enjoy an adventure and the chance of getting out on the water. Experience some fun and enjoyment kayaking with family, friends or each other straight onto the Atlantic ocean.

Our aim on a 3 hr scenic kayak trip is to get  you to a wild unspoilt location along our dramatic Atlantic coastline.

For our 3 hour scenic kayak trips we use modern user-friendly sea kayaks. Once you arrive for your kayak trip (after introductions) you are issued with a wetsuit, footwear, buoyancy aid and a helmet. Each paddler is given a boat to fit their suitability and a paddle for the trip. A safety brief and practical demo is then given prior to paddlers taking to the water to gain water confidence and familiarity. Basic paddling skills are practiced on the Atlantic ocean before the group head off onto their trip.

Possible 3 hour trip locations are:  

Kincasslagh Harbour

Cruit Island


Gweedore Islands


-Each session lasts approximately 3hrs. Cost of trips €40 per adult, €30 per Teen.

– All trips are weather dependent. There are no set operating times for the kayak trips. Locations and start times for all kayak trips are changeable and flexible due to prevailing sea conditions (wind, swell and tide direction)  at the various times/days of the trips. The length (time) and price of the kayak trip can be reduced due to unfavorable weather and sea conditions and participants will be informed of this in advance at the planning stage of the kayak trip.

-We supply all necessary equipment required for the trips, including wetsuits and footwear. Wetsuit sizes go up to size XL (paddler weight limit for the sea kayaks is 95kg ), if you require a wetsuit larger then XL it is possible that you are over the weight limit for our kayaks. 

Please Note: As we start our kayak trips from different locations we do not have proper changing facilities available.

-All you are required to bring along with you is a snack/drink and a towel.

-All instructors are fully updated trained, qualified and insured.

-No previous paddling experience or swimming experience is required. Age of children for the trips is 13 yrs and over (due to the suitability of the kayak trip for the age of the child).
