Single & Double Sit on Top Kayaks for lessons & rental

At Summer SUP & Kayaking we have a wide range of single & double Sit on top Kayaks which are the ideal way to try out a bit of kayaking. We have fully supervised sessions at both our locations:
Old Head, Louisburgh, Co.Mayo
Crookhaven, West Cork

The best kayaking equipment

We only use the best kayaks, we have single and double sit on top kayaks available for hire. They've been designed to include integrated side handles, storage hatches, comfy seats, paddle parks and a built-in rear wheel for transportation, this is all in mind to make your kayaking experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Most importantly for family users all the double sit on top kayaks we rent have a half size centre seat that allows a child to sit in the middle whilst mum and dad paddle.

Who is kayaking it for?

Kayaking is gafe for all ages and all abilities. With children under 10 we require a parent to be on the water with them. All necessary equipment is provided.

No experience is necessary for this kayak session we will run through the basics before you take to the water. They are very easy to paddle. We will also give you a designated area to remain with and a qualified instructor will keep an eye on you from a short distance.

What does it cost?

Kayak rentals are 1 hr €15 or 2 hrs for €20 per person. All equipment is included.

What is a Kayak class like?

  • Please arrive a few minutes before your rental starts to get checked in and changed to go on the water.
  • Your instructor will start with a dry land coaching session where they explain basic techniques and everything you need to know to get going on the board before they take you out on the water to put theory into practice on the water.
  • Your instructor will give you a designated area to enjoy everything you have learned.
  • Your instructor will give you a designated safe zone so that we can keep an eye on you and ensure you are safe and have the best time.
