It's time to start your adventures
Even in the vast and mysterious reaches of the sea we are brought back to the fundamental truth that nothing lives to itself.
Rachel Carson – Silent Spring
Your own personal watercraft which will get you to unique places, seeing seals, dolphins, caves, a sea arch and occasional basking sharks.
Guided sessions which will explore, examine and record observations of flora and fauna on Cape with an emphasis on maritime habitats. Local expert ecologist and ornithologists will lead these fascinating modules.
Also called free diving, this is the most expressive and sublime way of exploring the marine environment. It's also brilliant fun!
Clamber & climb along Cape's rocky shore – fall and jump into the sea!
Great for improving stamina, orientation and fitness. Bring shorts and old runners, and soon you’ll be climbing as high as possible to jump into the water, or letting yourself get swished around in the swell. It’s great, active fun with many challenges!
stand up paddleboarding
Probably slightly more challenging to stay dry than kayaking for some but it doesn't take long to get the hang of it and the 'walking on water' feeling is the reward!
This needs a stillness and concentration to get walking on it and you'll certainly feel your core muscles in keeping balance!
Irish language practice
Is Gaeltacht í Oileán Chléire so beimíd ag baint úsáid as Gaeilge uaireanta i gcomhrá. Tabhairfimíd misneach úsáid a bhaint as pé leibhéal atá acu, ní bheidh aon brú! Cape Clear is officially a Gaeltacht so we will be using conversational Irish during the week. Everyone will be gently encouraged to use whatever level of Irish they can, no pressure.
