We kayak on the assigned Blue way sea kayak routes on Achill island, One route situated on the Western side of the island at the famous Keem Bay, kayak at the foot of Europe’s highest sea cliffs, local regular visitors include basking sharks, dolphins and a selection of sea birds. Starting at Keem beach we kayak along the western coastline, then across the bay returning to the beach via a circular route. Keem beach is regarded as one of Ireland’s most spectacular beaches. The alternative Blue Way route is situated on the Northern side of the island, departing Silver strand at the foot of Slieve Mor in Dugort, we kayak along the North Eastern coastline to Golden strand, features on this tour include striking sea caves, sea arches and hidden beaches, local wildlife on this route includes nesting sea birds, seals and marine life.

"Terrific place and spectacular location with stellar instructors. I found the instructors friendly and patient ( needed that bit of extra help to stand ) their knowledge and experience made the lessons easy. Having showers in the beach separates Achill surf adventures from the rest. Looking forward to visiting again in May and staying at their new accommodations. I highly recommend the center to any surfer "

"Great location and great staff! They were all very friendly and went out of their way to make our time on Achill a hugely enjoyable experience. They are located on Keel beach which is incredibly scenic. We got some nice waves for our surf lessons and a dolphin popped up every now and then to say hello to top it all off. Looking forward to a trip next summer already! Keep up the good work guys!"
