A fried organised this trip as a birthday surprise, choosing a Saturday river trip as we all live in Galway. It was a perfectly calm autumn day, dry and even warm. Our group ranged from complete beginners to previous paddler dabblers - no experts! It mattered not; Duncan was a knowledgeable, friendly guide who put anyone's aquatic apprehension at ease....

Great fun, remarkable and memorable, and that was just Duncan! We spent the morning kayaking on the Corrib river. Duncan is such easy company, he is also very knowledgable about the wild life on the river and full of fascinating tidbits of local history. We have done a little bit of kayaking on the continent but I can honestly say... More

Myself and my boyfriend went kayaking with Duncan on the 17th of September. It was brilliant, Duncan is such a nice, patient tour guide! We ended up kayaking for over 3 hours. Duncan also brought marshmallows and we pulled up in some small tributary to the Corrib and ended up having toasted marshmallows! Myself and my boyfriend both had turns... More

Myself and a client who has additional needs booked "Give It A Go" with Ducan last week. I can not speak highly enough of the great experience both myself and my client had.

Duncan took us out for an afternoon on the River Corrib. We had beautiful weather and a fantastic time. Duncan was very kind, patient, and knowledgeable with our entire group. He also knew a lot about the area and gave us the perfect amount of freedom to kayak at our own pace without anyone getting lost. He also had little... More

Ahhh, we LOVED this experience! My boyfriend surprised me with a private kayaking adventure with Duncan as our guide, and we had a blast. Duncan was super cool, the bay was stunning, and we even got to shimmy into some hidden lakes which were worlds of beauty. Also, Duncan brought along a delicious hot black currant tea that we all...
