We operate a fleet of various types of motor boats from our base at The Trident Hotel Marina, Kinsale, catering for both visitors and regular clients with all levels of boating experience – novices to old sea dogs!

Self Drive: – Rent your own boat and go fishing or tour the amazing Wild Atlantic Way coastline & local wildlife, it’s breathtaking.
You can hire boats by the hour, day or half day from sunrise to sunset, seven days per week – weather permitting.
All our boats are licensed, insured, fully equipped and include a life jacket for everyone on board.

No Licence, Permit or Experience is required as we provide full training until you are happy, you’ll love it, just have a look at our TripAdvisors reviews – see Customer Reviews tab above.
We think you will find it excellent value for money and really GREAT fun for young and old.

Booking is preferred but not essential.

We can also arrange guided river and coastline tours by appointment, if you’d prefer us to provide a skipper.
Don’t forget your camera.
