Wild Water Adventures


Kerry Head

As an outdoor instructor, long distance open water swimmer, lifeguard and surfer John Edwards has been exploring the wonderful Kerry coastline and mountains for over 25 years. Wild Water Adventures specialize in water based activities such as coasteering tours, open water swimming, wild swimming tours and sea kayaking. So if it is the adrenaline of coasteering, the challenge of an open water swim around Fenit Lighthouse or along the stunning rocky coast of North Kerry or a relaxing wild swimming tour with a dip in a mountain lake or a secret spot along the coast, Wild Water Adventures are experts.

Coasteering is an action packed tour. An adrenaline filled tour along the beautiful rocky coastline of North Kerry, 20 minutes from Tralee. You are provided with a 5mm winter wetsuit (to keep you warm) helmet, buoyancy aid and the guide’s expertise. The tour water time is 2½ hours so expect to be with Wild Water Adventures for 3½ hours. Each tour is tailored for each group to meet their needs and abilities. Swim through sea arches, into caves, exploring, rock hopping, cliff jumping, get toilet flushed, starfish jumps, penguin dives and if the tide is right the giggle channel. Coasteering is a great way to make new friends, to experience the stunning beauty of the extraordinary coastline and to boldly go where few have gone before. Ages 10+

Wild Swimming Tours - The wild swimming tours take full advantage of the clean unspoiled beauty of the Kerry landscape. Wild Water Adventures can take you to a hidden mountain lake, a secret cove or a forgotten beach. Wild swimming is all about relaxing, not swimming distance. You are getting in for a dip and are experiencing the wonderful feeling of being part of the landscape around you. After your swim you will feel a natural buzz and there is always coffee and cake when wild swimming. You can be provided with a dry bag and wetsuit (if you don’t want to swim in your togs). Half, full day and weekend tours are available. So come and join this new adventure.

Open Water Swimming - Again Kerry’s coastline is a wonderland for open water swimmers. So if you are tired of swimming up and down in your local pool or other training spot and would like a change of scenery this is for you. Wild Water Adventures can take you around small islands, around a lighthouse or along a kelp forest. There is a real sense of adventure on the open water swims. Open water swim coaching also available, you set the goals and Wild Water Adventures will help get you there.

Wild water adventures take your fun very seriously. So come join the adventure.
