Emerald Outdoors offer spectacular guided tours of Kenmare Bay; whether this is your first visit to Kenmare or not, their Day/Night kayaking trips and new paddleboarding tours are an experience not to be missed.

Kayak Trips:
Don’t worry, they won’t let you get wet!! Emerald Outdoors’ fleet of stable and comfortable kayaks are designed to keep you safe and relaxed.

The Emerald Outdoors Night Trip offers a totally new and unique experience. This 2.5 hour tour will offer you the chance to experience the magical thrill of bioluminescence lighting up the water as you paddle between the silhouettes of the Caha mountains and McGillycuddy Reeks. As the light fades you will find that your other senses are heightened and you can enjoy a rare moment of total peace, immersed in beautiful surroundings.

All of Emerald Outdoors’ trips are guided by highly experienced and qualified staff. Unlike some kayaking trips there is no need for previous experience, wetsuits or even a change of clothes, simply put the provided waterproofs on over your clothes and you are ready to go. 

Paddleboarding Trips:

For a different adventure visit Emerald Outdoors on Kenmare Pier and try out their brand new paddleboarding adventures! Walk on water as you explore the historic and beautiful water ways only a 5 minute walk from the town centre. They even have an 8 person 'Megaboard' for the ultimate group experience...  All you need to bring is your swimwear and a change of clothes to enjoy the worlds fastest growing watersport with the best guides in the business.


Whether you choose a paddleboard or kayaking trip you will get to visit areas of the bay that would otherwise be unreachable. These eco-friendly journeys will bring you closer to the incredible wildlife and scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way as you explore the water that joins the Beara peninsula and the Ring of Kerry.
