Having Ali as our guide was a great choice. Not only that he is a fun and wonderful person to kayak with but also very knowledgeable about the area. My boyfriend and I learned a lot about Ireland’s culture, history, geography and other specifics about the area. I love the folklore part. Ali will tell you a lot about Ireland's giants, fairies and leprechauns.

We had a swell time. I recommend Ali Donald when planning of sea kayaking on the West Coast of Ireland. Ali the best!!!

If I could give 6 stars I would! Brilliant guided trip with Ali who took my daughter and I out this morning. He is so knowledgable about both kayaking and the local area, felt like we had not only a safe enjoyable trip but also a lesson in science, geography and history! Highly recommend it. A real adventure. Thanks again Ali, Steve & Mia.

We are a Family of four who went kayaking with Ali.
Ali look after us all and was an excellent and engaging instructor.

We were very fortunate to see dolphins whilst out kayaking in the Atlantic.

The memory will stay with us.

Ali's friendly and easy going manner put us all at ease.

Ali took myself and my two girls (8 and 10) out in two double kayaks. It was a fantastic experience. We started from Actons Campsite in Streamstown Bay and explored the coastline and inlets to the south. Ali is a top class experienced kayaker and guide on marine life (seaweed tasting included!) and local history. We even got to run a small rapid out of a tidal lagoon which was a thrill.

Recommend a trip with Ali for any age group and ability.
