Kayaking

Sea kayaks are available for rent on Ballinskelligs beach. these are ideal for exploring the shore and coast line around the area and give a completely different view of Ballinskelligs. There is a rich variety of sea life to see in Ballinskelligs bay. From early on in June schools of bottlenose and common dolphins can be seen feeding in the water surrounding the beach. Grey seals can be seen basking on the harbour rocksand and there is a huge variety of sea birds which come in from the Skellig rocks.

We have two types of kayaks available to rent - singles and duos (these can take up to 3 people). All our kayaks are 'sit on top' boats which means complete beginners can easily master them. Kayaking in the bay is very safe as it is sheltered from the sea and has plenty of nooks and crannies for exploring! Indeed the whole of the Iveragh penninsula is steeped in archaelogical history. The ballinskelligs monastery where the Skellig monks retired to is a 10 minute paddle from our location. Wearing life jackets is compulsory for all who rent from us.
