What to expect


After we meet you, we give you a wetsuit and all the equipment and we show you how to use it. You need to bring spare footwear to wear in the kayak eg old runners or water shoes.
You need to be able to swim to do this kayak tour. You don't need to be a champion swimmer but you need to be happy floating in the water wearing a buoyancy aid in the event of a capsize.

Next, we get on the water in historic Bullock Harbour and go kayaking along the stunning Dalkey coastline, even to Dalkey Island when the weather allows.

You will be treated to stunning views of Dublin Bay which is a UNESCO biosphere.

Then we will encounter the friendly Dalkey seals. They will play around our kayaks as we paddle past them. We will also see the wonderful birdlife.
