On a kayak you can see more & you can visit undiscovered parts of sea, lakes & waterways – alone or in a group, it’s always an adventure!!

On the health side – it’s brilliant for building fitness, toning & building upper body strength!

Isn’t that enough encouragement?

We have both Sit on Top kayaks & Closed Deck kayaks available for rental & used in our kayak sessions.

Our kayak sessions are prefect for seasoned kayakers and include Kayaking Lessons for those who have never sat on one before!!

Before we hit the water your instructor will get you familiar with your kayak on dry land first:

  • How to get in and out of one,
  • The correct way to hold your paddle
  • Your best sitting position:

All very basic things but all make your time in a kayak more enjoyable!

Once you get into the water you’ll learn everything you need to know: paddling in a straight line, paddling strokes, steering your kayak, reverse, stop & turn around.

Its a safe enjoyable session to show you what kayaking is all about.

Our regular kayaking classes start out with teaching all of the beginner requirements, while also visiting all parts of the estuary!

Once the group are confident they’ll then head on safaris further afield & out to sea . . . .

We offer private & 1 to 1 tuition in kayaking for beginner lessons, coaching or practicing

Whatever your preference we’ll help you achieve it!

Private Kayaking Trips: Malahide Estuary - Coastline

Why not organise your group to do one of our Kayaking trips? We start the session from Fingal Sailing school, run through the introduction in Malahide estuary: learning paddle strokes / capsizing & recovery. We will then bring you through the canoe slide at Broadmeadows Bridge(only one in Dublin!) & introduce you to moving water out through Malahide Marina. From there we’ll take a coastal trip either North to Donabate or South to Portmarnock (direction depending on wind direction / forecast on the day). Returning Back to Fingal Sailing School 3 hours later, having seen some of our beautiful North County Coastline along the way!! For more details call 01 8451979
