Really good fun with this crew. Boats in great condition and they really take their time teaching everyone in the group all you need to know before setting out. Luckily we had the weather and the sea was calm. Good day out had by all

A spectacular paddle out to Dalkey Island. Jenny was a great guide...somehow learning 21 names in 5 minutes. Water was surprisingly warm, there was a light breeze and steady tide, making it a comfortable but stimulating trip. Terns swooped through the air and seals popped...More
