Overview
Sea kayaking in Ireland is an activity on the up and offers the opportunity to get close to nature and to travel to places inaccessible by any other form of transport. We run four different routes on the Giants Causeway coast for different abilities and to accommodate the weather and sea forecast.

The route that passes the Causeway itself is an exciting paddle that requires competent kayaking skills. We use many other routes suiting beginner to intermediate kayaking skills such as via Dunluce Castle and the magical cliffs at Whiterocks and from Ballintoy to Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge. Giant’s Causeway coastline is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourism locations in Ireland, so it can get busy on the walking traditional route. Spending a half a day exploring the area surrounding the Causeway is a fulfilling and fascinating experience. Sea caves, smugglers coves and geology abounds in the short stretch of coastline to either side of the Causeway itself.

This was our second experience with the coasteering adventure offered by Far and Wild and it met every expection we had based on the first time around. My 20 year old grandson and two friends reported an amazing afternoon negotiating the rugged coastline of Inishowen with their guide, Darren. Probably the aspect that I most appreciate is that they felt safe in his hands. He challenged them to meet the obstacles in the terrain with confidence and, toward that end, gave them excellent instructions on how to navigate unfamiliar territory. I really look forward to offering this unique adventure opportunity in a couple of years with grandson #2 and his friends!!!

Thanks for the great review Suzanne. We love this stretch of coastline and as I remember you got a great day for it- absolute calm! I'm glad the boys had a ball and I look forward to taking them out again in the future

Very easy to book,on the website. Lorcan checked the tides and advised us of the best time to go paddle boarding on the Foyle. We gave them our wetsuit and boot sizes before hand and when we arrived at the quay, the team already had our gear ready to go. We had two excellent instructors in Lorcan and Michelle, to our party of eight, two adults and six older teenagers. We had a short safety brief and some welcome instructions on the basics then onto the water. Most of us hadn’t used paddle boards before, but there was ample help and support. We opted for a dragon board and four single boards between eight which allowed us to swap as we went along. We had an amazing time on the river, everyone had fun and of course no one came home dry! I cannot recommend Far and Wild highly enough, very professional with great kit and very easy to deal with!

My family had an amazing time coasteering with Lawrence in Inishowen. For my teenagers, the jumps were the highlight (and there were lots, from 10ft up to at least 40ft). For me, it was the astonishing scenery, the chance to go swimming around the shoreline and explore caves, etc. Lawrence was fantastic - he was slow and calm with me (I really don't have a head for heights), but adventurous enough that my kids had an amazing time.

Hi Kenny, thanks for the great review. We love our coasteering we do, and every single time we go out it is different. That's what makes it unique- it has something for everyone- so I'm glad to hear you got the most out of it. I hope to see you back again in the future.

Lovely morning paddle boarding down the Foyle with Michelle. Couldn't have asked for a nicer, funnier, more patient guide! A great experience for first time paddle boarders and a really unique way to see the city. Thanks again!
