Common Questions

Can under 18s rent paddleboards and kayaks?

All children have to be accompanied by an adult on the water as rentals are not supervised by our staff. The minimum age for rentals is 8 years.

Is any experience required?

For kayak rentals you don’t have to have done a lesson – if you have not previously paddled in a sit on top kayak, our staff will show you the basic paddle technique before you go out. In order to rent paddle boards you have to have experience, either from a lesson with us or another provider. This applies to all members of your group should you book for more people. You can book a lesson HERE. All participants have to be able to swim.

What do we need to bring and what are your facilities?

We have separate mens and womens changing rooms, toilets and showers on site. We also have lockers for valuables, but as we don’t take any responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged items, we recommend not to bring anything of value on your trip with us.

Participants need: swimwear, a towel and an old pair of runners that they don’t mind getting wet (mandatory for children, optional for adults).

Wetsuits can be rented against a charge of €3, buoyancy aids and helmets are provided free of charge.

Do we need to sign a waiver?

Yes, all participants have to sign a waiver before they can go on a session with us. We offer a digital waiver that can be shared with other participants by Whatsapp/Email. Here is a link to the text of the waiver.

Where can we go during our paddle?

The Grand Canal Dock is located in the heart of the Dublin Docklands and on your paddle across the basin you will be able to explore the area from the water – an hour, our standard rental time – is perfect to cruise around at a leisurely speed and take in the sights. Of course, if you use the rental as kayak or paddle training to increase your fitness, you’ll be able to cover many laps in an hour. It is not permitted to take the equipment out of the water to move to adjacent locations.

We are using public transport. How can we get to you?

We are located a 10 minute walk from the Grand Canal Dock DART station and a 10-15 minute walk from The Point LUAS stop. Bus routes that stop close by on Ringsend Road are 1, 15a, 15b, 15d, 47, 56a and 77a.
