Went coasteering today with my two daughters and it was an amazing experience, John was such a great host and couldn't have done more. My two daughters couldn't stop talking about how much fun it was and we'll definitely be back

Went Coasteering today which we had never heard of before but included jumping off rocks into the sea so we were game! Excellent experience, our 13 year old LOVED it. John was such a great host and guide. It was by far the best tour I have ever done. Really great value for money and I highly recommend for anyone with a sense of adventure.

On our trip to Ireland, Coasteering was one of the highlights of our trip for my husband and son-in-law. I read reviews about Wild Water Adventures before we left, their commitment to safety and how amazing John Edwards is as a guide for this adventure. I immediately added this to our itinerary and contacted Wild Water Adventures for a reservation. When my husband and son-in-law arrived at the pier, they were already waiting for them, had all the equipment necessary and took all safety precautions to make sure everyone was comfortable with jumping/swimming. Our reservation was originally for the day before; but because of swells, John contacted my husband to reschedule, and we were fortunate enough to be able to rearrange our itinerary to accommodate the new reservation. As a wife, mom and Nana, I am grateful to John that he took into consideration the safety of those jumping and didn’t hesitate to reschedule when it was safer to do so. John also took into consideration that some in the group were nervous about jumping. He calmed their fears about jumping, did not push them to do so and provided an alternative way to still enjoy the experience. He was very personable, had an immense amount of knowledge that he shared with the group and overall runs a first-class, safe, fun and exhilarating adventure. My husband and son-in-law enjoyed the experience, and this was an adventure they will remember forever and a memory they will cherish. I recommend Wild Water Adventures to anyone interested in Coasteering on the Ireland west coast.

Coasteering with John and Finn was amazing for our family of 5 (youngest was 10 and John was brilliantwith her). So much fun was had and John was so generous with his knowledge and time. I cannot recommend this enough if you are looking for an adventure.

I had never heard of Coasteering before our trip to Kerry BUT with the help and guidance of John (&Finn) I am a total convert!

Their absolute focus on safety was key to allowing everyone relax and this in turn meant that everyone had great fun, an interesting challenge in a group that ranged in age from 8 to much older!!

One of our group said that it was the best experience of his life and I can't say I disagree.

A brilliant evening of sunset sea kayaking with Wild Water Adventures from Fenit to Little Samphire Island and Lighthouse. Beautiful kayaking in the clear and calm waters of Tralee Bay. John Edwards guided us and with some great history and tales of land and sea. Our group of seven quickly found their sea legs and enjoyed a very relaxing paddle. Highly recommended.

John took us coasteering in July 2022, and it was pretty much the highlight of a trip to Ireland that was jam packed with awesome experiences. Not only was it super fun and well planned, but John provided us with local history and ecological knowledge in addition to being a great guy and excellent guide. The wetsuits are plenty warm and the coasteering experience can be tailored to different experience levels - us three adults wanted max thrills, but the day before the company had taken out a big group of kids. Highly, highly recommend!!!

Our kayak to the lighthouse for sunset paddle, with John and Eoin, will stay one of the highlights of summer 22 for me.
Thanks to John for entertaining storytelling:)

We did kayaking with Eoin and Finn who are so friendly and knowledgeable. They told us lots of great stories of the surrounding land and we had lots of fun jumping into the water at the lighthouse, not to mention the great kayaking or the 3 dolphins that are regulars. I need to practise my penguin jump 🙂 We’re looking forward to coming back sometime to try the coasteering.
We would highly recommend.
