SPLASH PARTIES FOR THE BEST BUDS

 

ESCORTED BY CANOEING IRELAND PADDLERS

 

The Boyne is a different experience for birthday bashes. 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 best thing is we take them off your hands for a while and you can chill at our outdoor covered coffee shop until they return. They’ll have one of our Instructors with them all the way so they’ll be in safe hands. We will keep them outdoors, keep them off the phones for a while and keep them laughing.

Know Before
You Go

  • Do I need to know how to swim?

    Do I need to know how to swim?

    It is better if you know how to swim. 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.
