Shearwater Sea Kayaking

Fáilte go Muirchadhcáil Chánóige.

Shearwater Sea Kayaking

Set up by Sean Pierce and Eileen Murphy, we are based in Howth, Co. Dublin, Ireland. Sean and Eileen have kayaked every inch of Ireland’s awe-inspiring coastline and want to introduce you to this adventurous activity in a safe and enjoyable way. The Irish coast is internationally renowned for its sea kayaking and yet Dublin’s north county is one of its best-kept secret destinations. The coast of Fingal hosts a fascinating array of islands, sea caves, stacks, cliffs, beaches and seabird colonies, best viewed from a kayak and all within a convenient distance of Dublin City and Airport. SSK offers you sea kayaking instruction courses as well as guided and customized trips led by instructors who want to inspire and enthuse you.
So come on board, you won’t be disappointed!
