Dublin Sea Kayaking

While we are delighted to now be in lovely North Leitrim, we're going to miss all our Dublin customers with whom we enjoyed so many happy and challenging days. Unfortunately, our space in Dun Laoghaire Harbour was needed for the cruise ship programme and, as we were unable to find anywhere else suitable, we're not running courses at the moment..

If you're going to sea, do make sure you're with qualified instructors. Only properly qualified SEA kayaking instructors can take you out on the open ocean. More info here.

Be safe and enjoy. Where the land meets the sea is a wonderful environment.
