One of our most magical and popular kayaking experiences, a moonlight / starlight paddle starts one hour before darkness.
This gives you a little time to get used to the kayak. We use a mix of singles and doubles. This is a very atmospheric trip and we do not travel a great distance, so it is suitable for everyone. There is always something to make you gasp on the moonlight / starlight kayak trip, whether it be the silhouette of the seabirds on the bank, the red sunset, the whole panoply of stars overhead, the moonlight reflected on the water, or, at certain times of year, the astonishing bio-luminescence. This is a light emitted by marine life, which, from the paddler’s point of view, causes the water to light up around your paddle in 1, 000 tiny lights.
Our night time kayak is very gentle and atmospheric. We welcome beginners, and indeed it is many people's first experience of kayaking. The trip takes place in the safety of either Castlehaven Bay or Lough Hyne . We encourage our paddlers to slip silently into the night and take advantage of the increased awareness of sound and odours, which is a special element of paddling in the darkness. We now also run a special Starlight Serenade trip once month which includes music and food .
Time: Begins one hour before darkness.
