Explore the biodiversity of the Maigue River by Kayak

About this event

On Sunday, May 29th. the Maigue Rivers Trust is organising a kayak trip down the Maigue to explore the biodiversity of the river.

Nevsail Waterport is our kayaking provider

There are two trips, morning or afternoon, for you to choose from.

Requirements

Minimum age requirement: 15

Fitness: While this is a guided kayak event, people signing up to take part should expect some challenge and a lot of fun.

Medical conditions: If you have medical condition(s) that requires you to carry medication (e.g. insulin, asthmatic medicine) please let the organisers know in advance via email (info@maigueriverstrust.ie and on the event day.

Morning paddle: Meet at 9:30am in Croom Town Park, be briefed on what to expect and get bused to Cherrygrove Bridge. On the water for 10am, off the water around 12:30pm.

Afternoon paddle: Meet at 1:30pm in Croom Town Park, be briefed on what to expect and get bused to Cheerygrove Bridge. On the water for 2pm, off the water around 4:30pm.

Clothing requirement: Nevsail will provide kayaks, wetsuits, lifejackets and helmets. You will need to wear swim gear and shoes you don't mind getting wet. If you have your own wetsuit bring that.

Biosecurity: Crayfish plague - a water-borne fungal spore disease - is present in the Maigue River. It is not harmful to humans but it is deadly to our native crayfish. To prevent spreading the disease to other watercourses, we ask all participants to check, clean and 100% dry all your gear immediately after the trip. The plague's fungal spores need water to survive, by 100% drying out your gear you kill the spores.

The cost per person is €22:20 (€20+ 2.20 booking fee)

The overall cost of this event is being subsidised thanks to funding from the European Green Leaf Project and Limerick City and County Council.
