About the tour
On our Giant’s Causeway Coast Kayak Tour we introduce you to one of the most powerful places on the island of Ireland. The proximity of the north coast of Antrim to the Scottish islands defines its character and history. We take you on an epic kayak journey to experience this first hand- under your own stream and in touch with the natural elements every step of the way.
The human footprint is apparent everywhere on the coastal area- from before the Bronze age to more modern times. However it is the natural heritage of sea birds, aquatic mammals and marine culture that defines this place. Underneath everything, the geology of this most recent of Ireland’s rock- volcanic Basalt.
Ireland is simply ideal for sea kayaking. It offers the opportunity to get close to places otherwise inaccessible by foot. Our tours offer 4 different routes on the Giants Causeway coast for different abilities and to accommodate the weather and sea forecast on any given day. Your Giant’s Causeway coast kayak tour will be tailored to suit your itinerary and experience.
This tour is best suited to those who have kayaked before, and perhaps sea-kayaked once or twice. You will be in a stable double sea kayak, unless you request a single kayak and have had some prior experience. On any of the routes we offer you will see the distinguishing features that make the Causeway Coast what it is- the geological footprint, signs of early settlement and aquatic sea-life.
Giant’s Causeway coastline is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourism locations in Ireland. Spending a half a day exploring the area surrounding the Causeway is a fulfilling and fascinating experience. Sea caves and smugglers coves are only some of the quirks of this amazing place.
Escorted by our qualified and experienced guides, your tour will last approximately 4 hours from your arrival to departure. The dynamic nature of the coastline makes it more challenging than other locations- but the rewards are obvious.. If you book this tour, please consider if you are booking the right experience for your interests and kayaking ability- check with us if you are unsure.
As one of our premium tours it is perfect for those will some prior kayaking experience who want to deepen their knowledge of the myriad of heritage influences that make up the amazing Causeway Coast.
Meet Our Instructors
I have been making the outdoors both my work and passion for over 10 years now- and every activity brings new people, new places, and new discoveries. What keeps me smiling is discovering the depth of Ireland’s natural heritage- and how people take to it so positively. I have been working with community leaders in Aotearoa/New Zealand for years to understand our own indigenous identity.
Born in the city, Darren spent 12 years working in Scotland leading water and land based expeditions. Living in Inishowen since 2018, he is happiest when rock-climbing and kayaking around our beautiful coast-line

It was a memorable experience exploring the coast. Really enjoyed seeing the Giant’s Causeway from a different perspective! Many thanks to Gareth and Roisin for their kind support.
Far and Wild just completed two full days of touring around Giant’s Causeway and Inishowen, tailored both for our group’s interests and the rapidly changing weather. Very accommodating, fun and enriching…Shayne was a great leader and F&W arranged two exceptional experts in Liam and Desi to help us fully appreciate all we were seeing.
Awesome kayak along part of the Causeway Coast Northern Ireland. So great to see the Causeway Coast from a different perspective away from the hustle and bustle of tourist crowds. Thanks Lorcan for a totally enjoyable day!
Tim Murphy –
We had planned our Giants Causeway kayak before leaving Canada and were very much looking forward to it and it did not disappoint. All in all it was a great outing and certainly a highlight of our trip.
Great trip with our guide Shayne.
He was very safety conscience and knowledgeable about the area.
Weather was blue sky and we managed to see inside a coastal bothy.
As the wind picked up we had to curtail the kayak but instead Shayne took is for a walk through the cliff, which was very picturesque.
Well worth a trip off the tourist track. Highly recommend
What a great trip! Having spent every long school summer up north with parents and grandparents I know the Causeway coast quite well. But our kayaking trip from Dunseverick towards the Giants Causeway gave me a totally new and fantastic view of it. Lawrence’s geological and cultural knowledge also greatly enhanced our experience of the coastline.
Lawrence made us both feel safe and secure kayaking in the sea, giving us a great balance of instructions and ocean awareness as well as letting us paddle and experience a sense of freedom (although we knew he always kept his eye on us to make sure we were safe! 🙂 ).
I highly recommend this trip to anyone.
I had the best time sea kayak paddling w/ my guide, Lawrence. We went out of a beautiful small harbor. When I arrived it seemed a little rough. He had options for me, but we decided to go out there. He was able to provide a challenging and safe experience for me. I would have never gone out alone in it – but with his experience and knowledge of the area we had a fabulous time! This is a weather pending and skill level activity. Most likely he would be able to accomodate any skill level (I would say I am intermediate, but beginner in the ocean). I would suggest that you be clear on who is signing up, ages, and skill level so he can plan accordingly. I am sure he can accomodate just about all!
