Coastal Canyoneering | Coasteering Adventure in Wexford is So Much More than Meets the Eye

It’s not just about jumping in with your eyes closed! Keep your eyes open and you’ll see the local wildlife, Seals, Porpoises, Dolphins, Gannets, Starfish, and other amazing creatures! The geology here is incredible. The foreshore area we use for coasteering is not assessable on your own and has abundant exposures of Carboniferous rocks containing beautifully preserved fossils which you will discover with us as we go. Exploring all this at close quarters is an intimacy that can’t be experienced without us!


We’re based on the stunning Hook Peninsula, which is a beautiful outcrop of rugged land that jolts out of the southwest Wexford coast. We have a diverse mix of magnificent natural landscapes. Sandy beaches, hidden coves, rugged cliffs, and low-lying limestone slabs reach out of the Atlantic Ocean. The Hook Peninsula is famous for our Sea Cave Kayaking Experience and is home to the oldest operational lighthouse in the world! (800+ Years). The Hook Lighthouse still stands proud at Hook Head, completely intact.
