Wexford Kayaking Safari’s allow you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of our great rivers

Wexford Kayaking Safari is a company based just outside Wexford Town Ireland. We do safari trips up the River Slaney and other rivers on request. All our Kayaks are “SIT ON”, which makes them very easy to paddle and very stable and safe in the water even for beginners. Our aim is to bring nature and the beauty that surrounds us to the fore. These trips are ideal for photographers and nature lovers. We supply all the equipment required for these trips and we can also arrange Bed & Breakfast if requested.


Kayaks were originally developed by the Inuit, Yup’ik, and Aleut. They used the boats to hunt on inland lakes, rivers and coastal waters of the Arctic Ocean, North Atlantic, Bering Sea and North Pacific oceans. These first kayaks were constructed from stitched seal or other animal skins stretched over a wood or whalebone-skeleton frame. (Western Alaskan Natives used wood whereas the eastern Inuit used whalebone due to the treeless landscape). Kayaks are believed to be at least 4,000 years old. The oldest existing kayaks are exhibited in the North America department of the State Museum of Ethnology in Munich.
