Atlantic Sea Kayaking
If you come to Baltimore do not leave without experiencing
a kayaking adventure with Jim Kennedy. All levels catered for and if you

Imagine beginning your trip at dusk and paddling into the darkness, whether
there is a full moon or a star filled sky overhead. Each trip has its
own special magic. Combine this with the phosphorescence lighting up the
ocean as it glitters like millions of aquatic stars and you have a truly
remarkable experience. If however you are a day person he will take you
kayaking to the local seal colony and introduce you to some of the hidden
scenery in West Cork that most people do not know exists.
