Wild Atlantic Salmon Kayak Tour

The Wild Atlantic Salmon Kayak Tour is an immersive sea tour in conjunction with our Wild Atlantic Kayak Guide- a definitive kayak guide to four great kayak tours in the 100km catchment.
Choose a tour that suits your ability and interest to explore some of the most hidden and beautiful parts of this great river system. Take a ‘slow’ adventure on our stable and relaxing boats and lunch-out on local produce in our succulent river-side hamper (optional extra)!
The Foyle is intimately linked to the story of the ancient salmon, which is a Irish myth about gaining insight and knowledge from nature. In ancient times Ireland was a riverine culture- transport, communication, civilisation and conquest all took place via water-based craft along the coastline and inland waterways of the entire island.
The North West was no exception and the Foyle provided the passageway for civilisation, christian-isation and conquest – to navigate the region. Underneath our recent history remains the ancient myths and beliefs which didn’t go away and remain hidden in the names given to our landscape.
So try an adventure on one of the biggest river systems in the country- learn how to paddle in your family or with your friends- discover the sense of fun and thrill of exploring new places, or visiting places you know and seeing them with new eyes.
Led by qualified and experienced guides, our Wild Atlantic Salmon kayak tours take place in various locations in Tyrone, Derry and Donegal along the river system, visiting historical gems and hidden corners of the countryside.
Discover the living traditions of the river and its communities on a Wild Atlantic Salmon kayak tour and feel transformed!
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.
Robin is a director of the company and experienced outdoor leader. 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!
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
