Trip in the little bay of Ballyvaughan for a touristic workshop. Our guide (Patrick) was really friendly, pedagogue, spoke english well, slowly in order to be understanding by all non-english people. Our trip was oriented "discover of bay's nature" and it was perfect ! Really accessible to a new audience, awesome landscape, etc .... well ! perfect moment !

My friend and I are students at UL and had such a great experience! We had not done too much kayaking previously to the trip and they were very helpful and explained everything. We got to see lots of wildlife and even a seal! Definitely recommend going!

Warm welcoming before paddling among seals, then the astonishing wild beauty of Mutton island with your thrilling explanations, and this outstanding sunshine... Patrick, your organization is exceptional, Paradise was not far away ! Thanks so much and hope to see you again for a Burren mountain bike tour.

We spent our last morning in Doolin with Patrick and Kelly kayaking on the south side of Galway bay. Although it was too rough to kayak the Cliffs of Moyer, we were able to enjoy the more quiet waters in the bay and see seals and seabirds.

The trip is really great! It is a nice way to see the Irish landscape in another way, and it was definitely worth the money! Patrick was really helpful and told us a lot of information about the suroundings. It was a really fun trip, also for beginners, so I would really recommend it!
