About Bantry Bay Boat Hire
Bantry Bay Boat Hire is Ireland’s only self-drive boat hire company on the Wild Atlantic Way. Experience this part of the Wild Atlantic Way from a different perspective, enjoying the breath-taking scenery and natural birdlife or wildlife that we encounter – it’s not uncommon to spot dolphin and seals on our trips! You will self-drive our easy to use powerboats and explore the majestic Bantry Bay from the water, a truly unique experience. All boat trips are accompanied by a qualified guide in a separate safety boat, so you never have to worry about going in the wrong direction. We will navigate you around the bay, showing points of interest and giving a brief history about the area while you soak up the atmosphere of beautiful Bantry Bay.

We took out 2 double kayaks with Bantry Bay in August 2020, when the weather was great, and between lockdowns. Great service, good safety briefing & equipment, we were more than happy to set off by ourselves, exploring Bantry Bay. Family of 4 with two teenagers (14 & 16). Had great fun, would definitely repeat and recommend.

Excellent guided kayak trip around inner Bantry Bay. Our guide Aaron gave details of historic sites around the bay. Tour lasted approx 2 hours with bioluminescence, a lovely sunset and views from the water. Dolphins were very shy that evening. Overall great experience, friendly and helpful staff, highly recommended outdoor activity.

Rented a double kayak with my 8 year old in summer 2020, it was a great experience! Easy to find from Bantry city centre.
