About Outdoors Ireland - Glengarriff Bay Sea Kayaking
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.

I did the part 1 of the kayaking skills course on Bantry bay with my husband and 4 others. We found it really helpful in gaining confidence manoeuvring the kayak and learnt all the strokes on how to steer, turn & stop. Kane was a great teacher & was great at giving advice and help when needed. We really enjoyed and will be booking part 2!

We had a really magical evening kayaking around Glengarriff Bay. The sun was setting as we set off. We were fortunate to hit on a calm night to experience the sparkle of the bio luminescent plankton once the sun set and our guide Nathan brought us into darker waters. All equipment was supplied. Id highly recommend this tour as relaxing way to spend an evening in West Cork.

We did an afternoon guided kayak trip in Glengrarriff bay. We were 3 adults & 2 children. The whole experience was amazing. Mark was a great guide & knowledgeable of the area. He was very attentive to the children & towed them along when they got tired which they loved! The highlight was when we saw the white tailed sea eagle & the harbour seals who decided to follow us for a while. We look forward to booking another trip soon

Great session with Nathan on abseiling and ropework. Excellent instructions and it gave me great confidence. Now looking forward to our trip to Skye to put it into practice. I would highly recommend Nathan and Outdoors Ireland for ir expertise in mountain skills. Thanks Nathan

We had a fantastic trip out in Glengarriff with Mark. All 5 of us had very varied abilities kayaking but we were all looked after really well, everyone going at their own pace and had such a great time on the water. They provided all the gear. We saw baby seals on Seal Island and took a break at the back of Garnish Island. Mark pointed out some seaweed that was edible so we picked some and brought it home for our dinner. We will definitely be back for another kayak adventure, maybe a nighttime trip! 10/10 will recommend.
