When you stay with us here at Goleen Harbour, you don’t just enjoy the magnificent views from afar, you get to experience them from the water. And with three different sea activities to choose from, we have something for everyone, whatever your interest.
‘Sea Safari Tour with Coastal Foraging’ Tour
Experience the wonderful Atlantic from a Kayak, while you learn about the natural gifts the sea provides
Located as we are on the magnificent Mizen Head Peninsula, along the rugged and world-renowned Wild Atlantic Way, the sea is something we treasure. But it’s not only because of the jaw-dropping and inspiring views it offers, it’s because fishing has sustained local families for generations and continues to do so to this day.
Tour duration: 3 hours
Cost: €75 per person
This tour is inspired by the importance of the sea to the lives of the people of West Cork and serves to introduce our guests, as well as other visitors to the region, to the abundance of sea vegetables that can be foraged safely and sustainably from our coastline.
Whether you are an experienced Kayaker or have never previously sat in one, this tour is perfectly suitable and safe for you: as well as having a full range of single and tandem sit-on-top kayaks that cater for everyone, from complete beginners to the more experienced kayaker, everyone will wear a helmet, a specialised wetsuit, and buoyancy aids, including life vest.
During this wonderful sea safari experience, you’ll get to see some of the local sheltered bays and inlets, including Toormore, Goleen, and Crookhaven, while at the same time, learning to identify and taste some of the many seaweed varieties that are common to our shores.
If you’re keen to try something different during your visit to Goleen Farm, this 3-hour kayak and foraging tour will not only allow you to experience the joy of kayaking but will also give you a real connection to the natural world, and a renewed appreciation for the marine world.
