About Outdoors Ireland
Spend A Relaxing & Thrilling Half-Day Exploring Glengarriff Bay By Sea Kayak. Beginning at an old stone fishing pier, sea kayak through deserted wooded islands, exploring sheltered coves and rugged coastline. Experience the abundant wildlife and friendly seals of Glengarriff Bay; a tranquil sheltered inlet, part of the larger expanse of Bantry Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Or Experience A Magical & Awe-Inspiring Sunrise Kayak On Glengarriff Bay. Whether you experience a dazzling orange and gold sunrise over the quiet waters of Glengarriff Bay; or a mysterious grey and misty dawn over the ancient oak woods - this is an unforgettable kayak trip. While the mountains slumber in their misty blankets; while the oak and birch woods doze beneath the dawn chorus; and the sea sleeps under pillows of seaweed - you will explore the intricacies of one of Ireland's most sheltered bays, with abundant seals, rich birdlife and numerous rocky islands. No Previous Kayaking Experience Is Needed.

Awesome trip. I would highly recommend, I look forward to returning again. Our experienced guide Mark was very knowledgeable, set a chill and fun tone for the 3 hours, safety was a priority. I felt so comfortable after an hour on the water that Mark was even able to teach me to flip and upright my kayak! All the right gear was provided as part of the fee, I didn’t feel cold once, even after being in the water. Saw loads of seals, they swam near us as we kayaked and were on the rocks around us! and I loved that we were encouraged to stay well back from them to not interfere with their natural habitat.

Took three young teenage girls on the evening kayak yesterday - it was fantastic. Glengarriff is so beautiful anyway, it was great to see it from the water. Mark gave us great instructions and loads of info about the area, the wildlife, the nature as we went around. Felt very safe and went at our own pace. Would highly recommend!!

My husband and I had a fantastic morning kayaking in Glengariff Bay with Nathan - I would highly recommend this trip. All communication prior to the trip was very prompt and professional. I had originally not realised Glengariff Bay was an option but Nathan advised that this would be calmer and more sheltered than Kilarney at this time of year and he was so right! The water was very calm, we were really warm with the wetsuits provided and the scenery and wildlife were spectacular. Cannot recommend enough, really safe and great guide - a spectacular experience!

Nathan led a small group of us on an outstanding kayak tour of beautiful Glengarriff Bay. A good three hours on the water. Nathan was a good guide, knowledgeable and friendly. An outstanding experience!
