1. Wild Burren Tour
“Magical. Exciting. Invigorating. Stunning – An absolute blast” – are just some of the fantastic comments from our delighted visitors once they paddle our Wild Burren tour with us. By far our most popular tour – we spend our time on the water around the quaint village of Ballyvaughan, with clear views into Galway City, and in the shadow of the limestone mountains of the Burren – this tour is an unforgettable experience! As we explore the rugged coastline, including small inlets and tidal islands, we are often greeted by friendly seals and magnificent sea birds, as well as the underwater beauty that the crystal clear water affords us. Delve into Irish history as we paddle to the ruins of Gleninagh Castle and it’s nearby Holywell. Here we might take a break from the kayaks to wander the ancient grounds or we might stop on a nearby sandy beach that becomes an island on a high tide. This is a tour not to be missed! Whether experienced paddler or not, this tour is perfect for all levels and ages!
2. Liscannor Bay Tour
Our Liscannor Bay Tour explores this spectacular stretch of coastline! We observe sea caves, and paddle around sea stacks, while paddling alongside the growing hills. Our tour starts in Liscannor at the pier, with spectacular panoramic views of Lahinch and the south coastline of Clare. As we hug the rugged coast, there is excellent opportunity to see many different species of seabirds, particularly in the bird sanctuary. As we paddle onwards, unique caves appear – some with enormous cathedral-like ceilings, others with narrow passages. Sometimes we even catch a view of shy sea otters fishing inside the dark caves! Due to landslides, we can not enter this caves. This is a great tour for those looking for something a bit different, and perhaps a bit of adventure!
3. Enchanted Lake & River – Inchiquin Lake
Inchiquin Lake is a magnificent lake nested in the lush, Irish countryside and on the edge of the Burren. The Lake provides us with a beautiful, scenic spot to observe all the wild life that thrive in the surrounding areas. Inchiquin sits gracefully at the base of surrounding hills outside the lovely village of Corrofin and is home to some exquisite species of birds, including White Tailed Eagles, Kingfishers, Grey Herons, as well as white and black swans, mallard ducks, and many, many more. On the North side of the Lake, sits a ruin of an old banquet hall and spiral staircase, a great place to stop for a snack and a bit of exploration! This tour is perfect for a family day out, and with our tandems, children as young as 6 can paddle with their parent and explore the Lake and it’s hidden ruins! Kayaking on Inchiquin Lake will treat you to a wild life-watching extravaganza!
3. Sunset Paddle
The Sunset Paddle is an absolute must-do kayaking tour! This unique tour starts while the sun is going down, about an hour before darkness. Watching the red sun set on the sea is always a truly awe-inspiring sight, experiencing it from the silence of your kayak is even better. Not only will the sky be lit up, at certain times of the year the sea itself will put on a magical display when the astonishing lights of bio-luminescence begin to glow and you will experience an amazing show all around you. As you paddle in Ballyvaughan Bay and watch the sunset over the Aran Islands, you will truly feel the beauty and majesty of Ireland.
