Wicklow Harbour Guided Tour

Wicklow Harbour Guided Tour

From the moment you arrive here in Wicklow Harbour we hope to impress, the beautiful scenery here along the Wicklow coast will take your breath away.

Starting in Wicklow Harbour we head south along the coastline under the Black Castle taking in the sights and sea caves. 

There is an abundance of wildlife to see along the coast of Wicklow. And who Knows!? You might even get to see the seals!

If seals, plants and birds ain’t your thing, maybe the cliffs and caves are! If the tides are in our favour we can take you to see parts of the Wicklow coastline that are rarely seen to the public.

Experience the Wicklow Coastline, the Black Castle and the sea caves like you have never seen it before. 

It’s a fantastic way to explore one of Wicklow’s most beautiful historical areas and learn a new skill at the same time. 

The harbour tour is suitable for both experienced paddlers & confident first timers.

We’ll run through the basics on land to make sure everyone’s up to speed with the techniques and then we’ll take to the water for a further bit of coaching. 

We are however influenced by the weather, if it’s a windy day the distance and direction that we go paddling in, will be for safety reasons, at the instructor’s discretion.

We provide all safety equipment including a high quality windbreaker jacket to help keep you warm and dry. 

To ensure that our guests have the best time possible, all our staff are fully qualified Canoeing Ireland Kayak Instructors.

Massive thanks to Susan and her team from @gopaddle.ie for a fantastic outing for Ferrycarrig Rowing Club yesterday.

We split into 2 groups and done a 2 hour scenic tour of the Slaney and Boro rivers.

Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the tour in a safe and relaxed atmosphere.

I would say that it's worth every second of your time, and if you didn't want to try it then I guess you're one of those people that don't like FUN because you're guaranteed to have a blast.

If I were to recommend the kayak academy to a friend I’d just be honest and tell them how brilliant it is. The enthusiasm, dedication, and friendliness of everyone in the academy, and the sport as a whole is something very unique and not seen in many other sporting communities. It truly is an honour to be a part of such a great sporting community.

It has changed my life and way of looking at life! Kayaking!

Its active, it’s lazy, it’s calm, it’s busy, it’s surfing, it’s swimming, it’s visiting caves, it’s isolation, it’s social, it’s group fun, it’s quiet, it’s loud, it’s laughing until you cry, it is facing your fears, it’s travelling, it’s sightseeing, it’s warm , it’s freezing, it’s a new perspective.
