The Railway Pier, Bantry, Co. Cork P75 RH59
Bantry Bay Boat Hire offers Guided Boat Tours, Sea Safaris, Sunset Kayaking, Food Tours, Kayak and Stand Up Paddle Board hire in the safe sheltered waters of Bantry Bay in West Cork.
Experience the Wild Atlantic Way from a totally different perspective as we take you out on the bay and you enjoy vantage points only accessible by water. Watch out for dolphins, seals and the many birdlife that frequent these waters on all our trips. Learn about the local fishing industries, the maritime history of Bantry Bay and taste local seafood on our guided food tours. Or maybe decide to kayak the marked kayaking route, The Bantry Blueway, which takes you around the inner harbour, across to Whiddy Island and back to Bantry. We have single and double kayaks available, so plenty of space for everyone. You could also explore the Blueway on our Stand Up Paddle Boards.
We have scheduled Sea Safaris and Guided Boat Tour departures or you can hire your self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board at a time to suit you. Why not hire a boat for a few hours and go mackerel fishing in the inner harbour of the bay? Or you could kayak to Whiddy Island and we will collect your kayaks for you so you can remain on the island and get the ferry back for free! Kids Kayaking camps also run throughout the Easter and Summer holidays for locals and visitors to the area. Private trips and group packages are available. We look forward to welcoming you to Bantry Bay soon!
