The stunning natural area around the Hook Peninsula in County Wexford is steeped in history, with a rich heritage and diverse wildlife. This is framed by a beautiful southern sunset in your Kayak off the coast of Hook Head, magical!

The Hook Peninsula in County Wexford is a beautiful outcrop of land off the southeast coast of Ireland with a diverse coastline of magnificent sandy beaches, rugged rocky cliffs, and limestone slabs. The peninsula is also home to the oldest operational lighthouse in the world. This magical Atlantic Ocean location holds many other secrets, which will be shared with you as part of your adventure experience. The area is steeped in history and tales of destruction. Today it is one of the most beautiful and genuinely peaceful yet wild areas of the Atlantic coast to visit in Ireland.

How is this tour different from the Sea Cave Kayaking Experience?
Our Sunset Kayaking Experience is the same as our Sea Cave Kayaking Experience, except for the later start-time and the added bonus of the sunset.
When should I arrive?
You should check in at least 30 minutes before your tour start-time at our Booking Office. Please be prepared to wait for people checking in ahead of you.
What is the starting location?
After check-in at our Booking Office you will then drive yourself the short distance to Baginbun Beach. Here you will get changed into your wetsuit and meet your guide at the tour start time. There is parking available in the village for check-in and at Baginbun Beach where you launch from.
Do I need to be able to swim?
No, you do not need to be able to swim to join one of our kayaking experiences. You will always be provided with a buoyancy aid, which will keep you afloat if you are in the water and a guide will always be near to help you back into your kayak, although our sit-on top kayaks are extremely stable – especially our double XL kayaks.
Do I need prior kayaking experience?
Not at all, our experiences are suitable for all, ranging from people who have never kayaked before to experienced kayakers.
Is there a minimum age?
The minimum age for our Sea Cave Kayaking Experience is 12 and anyone younger than 16 will share a double kayak with an Adult.
Are there weight or height restrictions?
There is a maximum weight limit for our kayaking experiences. The maximum weight limit for our single kayaks is approximately 140kg / 22 stone and the combined total weight restriction for our double XL kayaks is approximately 200kg / 32 stone. There are no height restrictions on our experiences.
Should we choose a double or a single kayak?
Our double XL kayaks are by far the most popular kayak, as they are the most stable and you can share the paddling together. If you are alone or have a group with an odd number you could of course choose a mix of double and single kayaks too. Please note: our guides will always be in their own kayaks and cannot share a kayak with any guests or their children.
Do minimum numbers apply for the experience to go ahead?
Yes, a minimum of 6 participants must be booked in for this experience to go ahead. If this is not the case we will be in touch to reschedule.
