Are you a water sports enthusiast who wants to have fun on, in, or under the water? If so, then Galway is the perfect watersports destination for you. With designated blueways, an extensive shoreline, and countless rivers and lakes, Galway, by nature, is a dream location for watersports.

If you’re after some fun on the sea, then why not try your hand at some windsurfing? Or if you fancy something a little bit more laid back, take to the kayak or paddleboard and explore the hidden inlets and coves along the shoreline or the rivers and lakes, and enjoy the fun of the rapids. When the weather’s not on your side, why not take a swim in an indoor pool or let the little ones splash around and have fun on the slides?

If you love sea life, then be sure to take a boat trip on the Atlantic Ocean for a chance to watch playful dolphins or, if you’re lucky, a whale! If you’re curious about life under the sea, that’s no problem, you can take a dive into the depths of the ocean and explore the fascinating seabed and all the marine life below.

Whether you fancy a leisurely swim, a laid-back glide along the water, an underwater diving adventure, or an adrenaline-pumping surf, you can be sure to find it in Galway. Just remember, if you are planning on taking to the water, always be aware of water safety! Avoid taking risks in the water, be aware of wind direction and tides, and adhere to all signs and notices at all times.
