What to expect?

The wild Atlantic ocean of Donegal and its offshore Gaeltacht islands - such as Owey - are a great place to go to and explore. Our aim is to give you a unique opportunity to access this beautiful natural environment and its amazing seascapes of caves, sea arches, waterfalls and sandy coves that can only be reached by kayak. These hidden gems of unspoilt, uninhabited locations where time has stood still are within easy reach with little or sometimes no kayaking experience necessary. An unforgettable paddling adventure can be obtained through exploration, interaction and by getting up close to marine life such as curious, bobbing seals and a wide range of seabirds.
