Where are we based?

When in Kerry we are based in Sneem. We also run a mobile service. With all boats and gear loaded on our trailer we can meet our customers at numerous locations given enough notice.

How safe is it?

Very safe, we don’t like to take chances with our clients. All our kayak trips are led by highly experienced and qualified guides and all safety gear is included.

Are they easy to operate?

Very simple! After ten minutes or less you will have the hang of it.

Do I have to be able to swim?

No, you will be wearing the proper life jacket or buoyancy aid.

Do I have to paddle?

You can if you like, but I prefer to use the engine.

Will I get wet?

The kayak is a relatively dry craft but we supply wet gear just in case. In winter months wrap up in warm clothes and we’ll kit you out with the rest of the gear you need.

Can the craft capsize?

You can capsize any boat if you try hard enough. Fortunately these are rather hard to turn over. We avoid capsizing at all costs as it’s not very good for the engine!

Are you open all year round?

Yes! but weather is a major determining factor for winter trips. We also run a mobile service. With all boats and gear loaded on our trailer we can meet our customers at numerous locations given enough notice.

Are the kayaks comfortable?

Very. You have a nice soft seat under you and the kayak also has a backrest, just sit back relax and enjoy the ride.

How fast are they?

Average speed is around 10 k/hr depending on the weight of the occupant.

What if the engine breaks down?

It doesn’t happen often, but if it does we are there to tow you in or, if you want, you can paddle.
