Introduction to Kayaking or Canoeing, for one, Dublin City

  • 2 hour session perfect for the beginner, novice or occasional paddler
  • An experienced instructor will help you learn the basic skills
  • A great fun way to explore the historical and picturesque Grand Canal

Head over to Portobello Harbour and bring your sense of adventure along with you as an unforgettable experience is fast approaching!

This experience is the perfect introductory session to kayaking or canoeing, two of the most enjoyable ways to have fun on the water.

Before you get into your kayak or canoe, your instructor will initially take you through a safety induction and the basic skills on dry land. Once you feel comfortable, confident and ready to go, you will take to the water on a two-hour journey along the picturesque Grand Canal. With paddle in hand, you’ll master some of the basic paddling strokes and techniques to help you paddle forwards, backwards and to turn.

Not only will you have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the kayak, you’ll also be gliding through seven open bridges and cover almost five and a half kilometres in total. As you meander along this 200 years old canal, steeped in Dublin history and character, you will experience the local sights and beak-billed wildlife from a whole new vantage point!

This is an unforgettable experience that just might spark a passion for a whole new hobby!
