Open canoeing, Sit on top kayak & Enclosed kayaking

Our Introductory/Taster sessions take place on the calm, sheltered water of the Dromore river. Our Instructors hold Canoeing Ireland and British Canoe Union qualifications and we have considerable experience in instructing, paddling and competing in paddlesports. We provide all specialist equipment (wetsuits, helmets and buoyancy aids) and have a large fleet of kayaks and canoes suitable for all waters.

  • Canoes are generally two person craft and the paddler kneels in the boat with a single bladed paddle. We use canadian canoes and raft them together which allows a group of people to paddle together along with an instructor. Rafted canoes are ideal for beginners and are very stable.
  • Sit on top Kayaks do not have an enclosed cockpit so no need to worry about swamping the boat!. They are ideal for beginners and young children. We have a variety of sizes of sit on top kayak including single and double.

  • Kayaks are generally a one person craft, with the paddler seated, using a double bladed paddle.
