Moonlight Kayaking

From: £40.00

Our Moonlight kayaking trips happen on or around the full moon. Take a journey down the Foyle Estuary or surrounding coastlines and river systems close to Derry-Londonderry. Experience nature at its most quiet.

Animals tend to forage at night-time and a moonlight paddle is the ideal time to catch them. We use accessible but dramatic locations for our moonlight paddles, such as under the Peace Bridge in Derry, around Magilligan Fort and the Roe River under Binevenagh Mountain.

Moonlight Kayaking is a wonderful experience and a way to see your city or countryside in a completely new light! A Moonlight Kayaking may be based in your city or in local countryside- it reveals a different and exciting side to nature.

Led by an experienced kayak guide, the journey will start at twilight and usually get the last of the sunset on the horizon. Not long afterwards you will watch the moon-rise from the comfort of your 2 person kayak, floating lazily down-river.

It is not uncommon during a moonlight kayak tour to get a clear view of the star-lit sky. At certain times of the year we will run our moonlight kayak tour during a meteor shower and the display can be stunning.

A simple knowledge of the night sky in the northern hemisphere can provide clues to navigation and orienting yourself in the countryside at night. There are a number of dark sky locations in the North West of Ireland where it is ideal to view celestial activity from the seat of a kayak gently floating on the water.

The moonlight kayak tour is best suited for adults or adults with children over 10 years of age.

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.

Specialising in environmental education, Robin is a proud home-schooler and spends a lot of time exploring the outdoors on a daily basis with his young family. He loves climbing and canoeing, always including some  foraged food en route!
