Explore the coastal waters of the Emerald Isle
Are you looking for more adventure or eco-friendly options on your next vacation to Ireland?
When you think of Ireland, you may think about castle tours, pubs and distilleries, or historical tours. What you may not think about, however, is exploring the coast of Ireland inside a kayak. With our vendor Atlantic Sea Kayaking, Tenon travelers can now embark from the coast of West Cork to explore nearby coves, caves, islands and marine life.
Recently awarded the “2019 Best West Cork Business” at the West Cork Business and Tourism Awards, Atlantic Sea Kayaking offers tours for everyone, from beginners to novices. Some of your kayaking options include family-friendly tours in the calm coastal waters in case you have your little ones (although they must be at least 8 years old) as
well as tours for the adventure seekers like their Coastal Exploration Tour. This is one for intermediate kayakers, where you’ll start from Lough Hyne and kayak through the narrows, following the coastal to Toe Head, Castlehaven Bay, Stag Rock and High and Low Island. As a bonus, lunch is provided! They offer guided stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) tours for both beginner and advanced guests as well.
For a different experience, you can also choose one of their night-time kayaking tours. The Moonlight/Starlight Experience offers a unique way to explore Ireland’s waters at dusk. If you’re one who enjoys birdwatching or birds in general, their Evening Bird Chorus Tours offer the chance to witness an orchestra of birdsong. This amazing nature experience is offered in the spring from March to June; the perfect time to discover all that Ireland has to offer.
