Choose your water adventure: 

Pick from Kayaking & Stand Up Paddle Boarding. 
Our single sit on top Kayaks, double sit on top kayaks, treble sit on top kayaks and single stand up paddle boards are all the same price, pick the one that suits both your numbers and your capability.

Due to our waters being tidal, booking are subject to change and cancellation if conditions are deemed to be unsuitable.

But don't worry, if the water based activities are cancelled we will happily accommodate you on land with our 2 hour family adventure.

Our watersports facility has been altered to comply with the new COVID-19 regulations.  We now only run one session per day, with a maximum of 15 people per session

We can only offer kayaking to 5 families/units/pods per session. All 5 pods will be socially distancing from each other at all times.

Kayaking is tidal based, so please check the date you require to show you the time available.

Facilities are in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, please avail of them at every opportunity.

There is a maximum weight capacity for both the kayaks and the life jackets. It is an adventure that requires an average level of fitness.

Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time, in your active clothes and ready to go

Experience the beauty of Fota Island Resort from the water, spend an hour and half under the guidance of our fully qualified instructors kayaking, playing water games and enjoying the beautiful surrounding. Helmets and buoyancy aids are provided, wet suits are not needed, nor is the ability to swim, so arrive, paddle and prepare for a little bit of splashing.



Stand Up Paddle boarding is the fastest growing watersport in the world and you can experience it right here, right now in Fota Island Resort. No wetsuits required, you arrive, put on your helmet and buoyancy aid, stand up and paddle. It is an adventure on the water and once you get the hang of it, you may even get a chance to look up and enjoy the stunning landscape surrounding you.

Rest assured that our staff are trained and certified to the highest standards.

They are aware of your safety needs and have the experience to deliver fun in a thoroughly safe environment.

This is what you say about us and our attitude towards your covid comfort zone.
