A night to remember and cherish From the moment we arrived at the pier we were greeted with friendly professional people who explained all the safety aspects - we were helped into the required buoyancy equipment and when in the kayak our guide explained the rowing techniques- we were then pulled into the water so it was a comfortable transition from land to sea - we were out before sunset so our eyes adjusted to the darkness - It was lovely to be on water as the Sun set - our guide was knowledgeable about all the elements from the wildlife and night sky - we kayaked around the cluster of islands on Kenmare Bay - we experienced shooting stars and the Bioluminescent which was magical - a night my friends and I will never forget - thank you Jamie for a truly wonderful evening

I had an amazing experience with Jamie and Eamon on a recent trip. Not only did I feel completely safe and supported throughout, but the experience was informative, enjoyable and one that I will cherish for a long time!

Absolutely recommend this to anyone! Jamie and Eamon are excellent, funny and informative guides. Kayaking in the Bay under the clear starry sky, with bioluminescence in the water, is one of the coolest experiences I've ever had.

Myself and my husband thoroughly enjoyed our morning kayaking trip! Eamon was a fantastic tour guide who told us loads of history of the islands and surrounding area as we paddled the bay. Would highly recommend!

Phenomenal! An incredible experience with a very knowledgeable guide. It was my first time in a Kayak and won’t be the last. Couldn’t recommend this enough! The bioluminescence was magical and unforgettable. The tour was very well structured. It was educational and really good fun!
