Bantry Bay Boat Hire has something for all the family to enjoy during your stay in West Cork with our guided boat tours, kayak tours, kayak and stand up paddle board hire and kids kayaking camps.
Choose from boat tours in our self-drive boats in a follow-the-leader style tour where your guide navigates you around the inner harbour of Batry Bay. Watch out for dolphins, seals, birdlife and enjoy the beauty of Bantry Bay. Learn a little history about the area and let everyone take turns at being the 'Captain for the Day' as everyone gets a chance at the wheel.
For families with older children, why not join the adventure of our Sea Safari RIB boat tour as we take you our into the wider Bantry Bay area and around Whiddy Island. We will be searching for the many dolphin, porpoises and seals in these waters and might get lucky with a sighting of a minke whale!
Or why not join one of guided kayak tours or hire kayaks for all the family and follow the Bantry Blueway marked kayaking route. We also offer sunset kayaking trips which have the possibility of seeing the wonder of bioluminescence!
Paddle boards are also a great outdoor activity for alll the family while our kids kayaking camps run during the Easter and Summer holidays for children aged 8yrs+. These are 3-day camps with kayaking, a little learning and plenty of fun and games on the beach.
We also offer guided food tours, birthday parties, boat hire for mackerel fishing etc. and cater for private groups so we have plenty of options for your trip to Bantry. We look forward to taking you out on Bantry Bay soon!
