Donegal company Inish Adventures provides water based activities and courses focussed on sea kayaking, open boating, white water kayaking, surf kayaking, gorge walking, river rafting, sailing, stand up paddling, pier jumping, archery, orienteering and more. Individuals, families and groups are catered for, with options ranging from a quick hour long session to more challenging outings.
Based in Moville, County Donegal, Inish Adventures now operates a second venue from Ned’s Point in Buncrana. Courses and activities range from half day skills courses to full day guided sea kayaking trips along the scenic northwest coastline, known for its wealth of scenery and wildlife. Or choose surf kayaking on the glassy waves at Donegal’s unspoilt beaches, or a canoe trip down tranquil waterways, following archaeological heritage trails. At Moville you'll find the floating waterpark assault course.
From October to April river trips are available for everyone from beginners to experienced paddlers. These trips involve a lot of learning and fun, and you will see the natural beauty which can often go unnoticed along the banks of local rivers. Whitewater trips take place in Donegal, Derry, Leitrim or the Sperrin Mountains. Whether you prefer a slow adventure or action packed exhilaration, you will find an activity to suit you.
Inish Adventures also run multiday outings including its two day Island Camping Trip, which is ideal for families or groups. Parents might be interested in three day or week long summer camps, which cater for juniors.
Another option is to explore the River Foyle and the Foyle Estuary using one of the clipper canoes, which seats 14 adults or 17 children.
Courses and workshops include those focussing on rolling, rescues and basic strokes. Equipment is provided including kayaks, canoes, wetsuits and all protective clothing, as well as full changing facilities with showers. Group rates are available.
When you are finished enjoying the water, this area of Donegal has plenty to offer. The Inishowen Peninsula has many walking and cycling trails. Divers are spoiled for choice, with many wrecks including ocean liners and German U boats waiting to be explored. If you’re a nature lover, check out Malin Head, known for its fantastic scenery and a favourite haunt of basking sharks.
A great range of accommodation is found in the region, from small family run bed and breakfasts to larger hotels.
For fun on the water with a bit of a challenge, their Waterpark floating assault course is perfect for the whole family.
