“Experience of a life time”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

We had a fabulous evening on the water with JIM Kennedy , the scenery was incredible and the stories that JIM told made it all the more interesting.
It is a unique experience kayaking by moonlight and very safe.
JIM is one of Ireland's highest trained instructors and has years of experience,
We will certainly be back!

“Moonlight Kayaking”
Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

Myself & a few friends went on the moonlight kayaking adventure. It was truly amazing. It starts around 9.30 from Reen Pier & we where provided with over the body suits - basically wear normal clothes underneath & this will keep you somewhat dry! Jim brought us out & the experience was unreal, we saw lots of interesting stuff from an owl to fish jumping up around us.

Would highly recommend to anyone!!

“Night time kayaking”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

my husband and myself enjoyed a evening/sunset kayak in Reen pier during the weekend and throughly enjoyed ourselves. Our guide Dermot was very good and told us a lot about the local area. I would highly recommend this tour and company..

“Best outing of a 21 day trip around England, Ireland and Scotland”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

We were on a cruise around the British Isles and one of the stops was Cork. I think the other 3000 cruisers went to wait in line to kiss the Blarney Stone. With 2 teens, I'm very glad I had found Jim on the internet and scheduled a river kayaking trip instead. I was a little concerned, just swapped a few emails and agreed to meet at a certain time on a certain day, no guarantee when you are showing up in a country you haven't been to meeting someone you found on the internet. It was great. Jim brought his two boys to help get us going and they were about the same age as my boys, he had all the gear we needed, we didn't need anything. Showed us the right way to Kayak, only one of the 6 of us had been before, and took off. We had fun, nobody fell in, the kids were entertained by a seal that followed us the whole way, popping in and out and coming within inches of our kayak. Jim also explained all about the city and various points of interest as we went up the river. He also had it timed really well with tide flows and our trip back was very fast with little paddling required. The only regret...that we didn't plan a longer tour. A few hours sounds like a lot when you are planning, but goes by very quickly when everyone is having so much fun. We had 12 year olds through 73 year olds and they all had fun and found it easy. THANKS AGAIN JIM!
