Kayaking in Mayo
Mayo has lots of options for kayaking. There are plenty of rivers and lakes to explore around the county for more experienced paddlers, but by far the most popular option is sea kayaking in Clew Bay and beyond.
A sea kayak allows you to experience Clew Bay in a completely different way to any other boat. The maneuverability and quietness of the sea kayak means that you can slowly traverse the coastal islands seeing wildlife and birds up close, explore cliffs and caves near Westport and visit places no other boat can reach.

Sit On-Top Kayaking
For the absolute beginner, sit-top kayaking is a great way to experience the thrill of paddling your own boat. The Adventure Islands has sit on-top Kayaks for leisurely paddling on the lake at Westport House. They also offer in-shore fun on their island bases, paddling in the surf on the beach.
