We run kayaking trips and journeys along the stunning coastline of NW Donegal, along Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way.
Rapid Kayaking is run by James O'Donnell L3 sea kayaking coach, ex British surf kayak champion and European finalist with years of experience paddling the Donegal coastline.
We run half day sea trips to Donegal islands visiting deserted beaches and rocky coves paddling into caves through sea arches and along cliff bound coastline.
We run shorter fun 2 hour trips that are family friendly and for people new to kayaking.
2hr Scenic Trip €25 per Adult €20 per Child.
Enjoy an adventure and the chance of getting out on the water. Experience some fun and enjoyment kayaking with family, friends or each other.
For our kayak trips we use modern user-friendly sit-on-top kayaks. Once you arrive (after introductions) you are issued with a wetsuit,bouyancy aid and helmet, and each paddler is given a boat to fit their suitability and a paddle for the trip.
A safety brief and practical demo is then given prior to paddlers taking to the water to gain water confidence and familiarity. Basic paddling skills are also covered and practised before the group head off onto their trip.
