My friend and I had a tour guide named Ulten who was absolutely hilarious and ensured that we truly had a blast!! He was very kind, knew a good amount of history that he shared with us, provided snacks, and was entirely personable and interactive the entire time! Loved it!

He was really accommodating as we could not join the morning group, he offered us a session for the afternoon and gave us a lift close to Galway city center. The guide was also really interesting as he... More

We were a little worried we might be cold on a cold Irish afternoon but layers of the provided wetsuit, anorak, kayak skirt and life jacket ensued we stayed warm and dry.... More

This was a brilliant experience. Jim our guide was so professional and helpful. We were complete beginners and he made us feel confident and comfortable.
