We spent a wonderful afternoon sea kayaking in Ballyvaughan. Top notch equipment and guided by a wonderful Patrick who went out of his way to ease the nerves of a first timer.

Was a very good tour. Patrick gave detailed safety instruction and explained how to kayak best. After the introduction we started our 3h tour. During the tour Patrick explained a lot about the flora and fauna, the last storms and other interesting stories about the area and the sea live.

4 of us booked into kayaking while on a camping trip to Doolin. The instructors Patrick and Chris took us through the technique quickly. All the gear was provided and was comfy. They really knew their stuff about the surrounding coast so was a really interesting trip. We got to see seals and learned loads about the local marine environment.... More

Our tour guide was fun, energetic, and informative. He was very knowledgable about the surrounding area. If you enjoy outdoor activities highly recommend Patrick and his co-workers.

Booked the 4 McDonnell's a few weeks ago with Patrick leaving from Ballyvaughan. They had a reamarkible time and would have done it again if we were staying longer in Doolin. They learned so much about the sea, it's sea life, and caves. They loved Patrick. It was a very wonderful experience for all 4 of kids. Can't wait to... More

My fiancee and I went out with Patrick and Chris on the Wild Burren/Galway Bay trip and had a blast. We had originally booked a different trip, but plans had to change b/c of weather (nothing you can do about the weather). Patrick and Kelly did an awesome job making a trip happen for us. While we were out, Patrick... More

Patrick and Chris served as guides for a half-day kayak outing for 16 college students and me. The weather was Irish (rainy, a bit windy) but we had an awesome time. Patrick was very careful to explain the do's and don'ts of kayaking before we ventured into Galway Bay. He and Chris did a great job ensuring the students were... More
