Canoeing at Achill Outdoor Education and Training Centre


Canoeing or open boating as it is sometimes called is  much easier than most people think to learn owing to its confusion with Kayaking. Canoes are open boats with the option of sitting or kneeling whereas Kayaks are smaller and have closed in cockpits.   

All our coaches are qualified and adhere to the guidelines recommended by the  Canoeing Ireland.

As people do not feel confined in canoes they are more confident and, with expert tuition, can explore lakes, rivers and inland coastal waters.

Canoe rafting and sailing are another interesting and exciting facet to this activity and eliminate much of the effort of paddling and fear of capsize.
