West Cork Sailing and Powerboating Centre was established as an Irish Sailing Association and Royal Yachting Association training centre in 1997. Soon afterwards Cruising with Jessy of Adrigole and Kayaking with the Seals was set up to give locals and passing tourists a chance to paddle in freedom within Adrigole Harbour and the colony of seals.

Our base is in one Europe’s most beautiful harbours along the Wild Atlantic Way, Adrigole Harbour off Bantry Bay. Niall MacAllister, skipper, yachtmaster instructor and tour guide is passionate about the local wildlife and has studied at UCC as a zoologist, specialising in marine mammals.

Sail away on a liveaboard sailing trip with friends or family. Step on board Jessy of Adrigole and your skipper, scientist, sailor, chef and passionate explorer Niall MacAllister will take you on an adventure of a life time and show you Wildlife on the Wild Atlantic Way you never knew was there. Set to sea for 1/2 day to 14 days or more.

Or take a gentle paddle with the seals. Back at base camp in Beara, you can enjoy an exploration of your own and discover the Wildlife, peace and tranquility of Adrigole Harbour, all at your own pace while gently kayaking or canoeing.

The combination of our location, skills and passion has created Wild Atlantic Wildlife.
