There has been an explosion of interest and activity in sea kayaking in Ireland during the last ten years. This seems only natural in a country that is surrounded by some of the most spectacular coastlines and blessed with a splendid variety of islands. Sea kayaking appeals in many ways. It can be a way of leaving a busy week behind, slipping away through a still sea, the only sound being the splash of your paddle. To canoe amongst uninhabited islands and to pass under daunting sea cliffs is a great way to spend a few days. The great attraction of sea kayaking is the opportunity it gives to journey amongst this wilderness with the freedom to explore wherever the mood takes us. At other times the appeal can be the exhilaration of crashing through rough seas, fighting against a wind whipping the sea against your face...
