Know Before
You Go

  • Do I need to know how to swim?

    Do I need to know how to swim?

    You don’t need to know how to swim. If you are going on the water you will be wearing a Personal Flotation Device (PFD) which will keep you afloat if you fall in. The Boyne is waist-high in most places so you can just stand up when you go in.

  • Do I need to know how to kayak?

    Do I need to know how to kayak?

    Our sit-on-top kayaks are designed for beginners so you don’t need to have kayaked before. We will run through the basics with you before you get on the water.

  • Is it safe?

    Is it safe?

    Playing in the outdoors does carry some risk. That is why all our guides are certified Canoeing Ireland instructors.

    All activities last from 1.5 hour to 3 hours. Guided Kayaking lasts 2 hours.

    We have limited parking but there is a large paid (€2 cash only) car park across the road from us.

    Do I need to pre-book?

    We recommend you do as places get snapped up very quickly

  • Will the weather affect the activities?

    Will the weather affect the activities?

    All land activities can be moved inside if needed. Only lightning will stop the water activities. Rain will cool you down ; )

  • Can I bring my phone on the boat?

ADVENTUROUS AWAYDAYS

 

YOU PLAY WHILE WE TAKE CARE OF THE PLANNING

 

The Boyne Blueway has 35km of pristine river. That’s a lot of room for you to play. Scream over big waves and rapid sections. Drift through serene countryside with only kingfishers and otters for company. It’s a way of moving and playing that is completely different. It’s also totally natural. We call it the Boyne Valley Experience.

The only problem is getting from A to B and we take care of that. Rock up to our riverside base in the town, grab your gear and we bus you where you need to go. Doesn’t matter if you are a hen party on the lash, a bunch of TY terrors or accountants on an away day, we create the experience of a perfect day out for groups.
