Ballisodare Bay & the Seal Colony 

Choose a Date

  Available     Full     Unavailable

A leisurely paddle of Ballisodare Bay, we will utilise the tide to meander our way to the resident seal colony where you can view these creatures in their natural habitat. Paddle along the southern slopes of majestic Knocknarea mountain and see the grave of legendary Queen Maeve of Connaught, from the water. We need a combination of a low tide and zero to very light wind to be able to run this tour, which makes this route a rare gem. A beautiful paddle for people of all experience levels. 

Note: There is a minimum charge of €300 on this route. For more info see FAQ.
