Sea Kayak Around Ireland - Full Documentary

Winner of Best Sea Kayaking Film - Reel Paddling Film Festival 2017
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sea Kayak Around Ireland is 45 minute documentary the tells the story of 2 Irish Sea Kayakers who take on their dream journey of circumnavigating their country.

2015 will go down, for myself (Jon Hynes) and my paddling partner, Sean Cahill as being one of our most memorable years. We both have enjoyed a lifetime of adventures from a very young age. This has been one of our most satisfying adventures yet.

We really hope you enjoy our documentary “Sea Kayak Around Ireland”. It’s been a dream of our to paddle around our own country for many years. In fact we were inspired by many of our kayaking friends who have taken on the journey in the past. Over the year both Sean and I have kayaked all over the world, we’ve had great victories over nature and the elements both on the sea and on the river. Sometimes we fared less well against those elements, however we always maintained a grounded sense and a willingness to learn. With these experiences behind us we embarked upon our dream trip around Ireland in June & July 2015.

Not only did the weather and elements test us but our trip was a celebration of life, fitness, adventure and most of all, Irish people. Every day we met people, who were so kind to us, we are forever grateful to each and everyone of you. Hopefully this film in some small way reflects how much that kindness means to us. Ireland truly is, one of the world’s most special places to come and sea kayak.

Both Sean and I would to thank the following people and companies.

Cian Walsh of Marine User Experience ( for all his hard work, dedication and unending energy to help us bring our story to life in this documentary. We really appreciate every ounce of energy you gave. Much respect.

Thanks to Nick Bendon of , he came on board our trip plans from a very early stage and supported us with product and publicity.

Yak Kayaking equipment kindly supplied us with some really fantastic kit. The Greenburg Buoyancy Aid and Glacier Jacket felt like battle armour when we faced the most challenging of Atlantic sea condtions.

Craghoppers clothing and Gavin Fox were also very kind to us taking care of all our shore based clothing. Thank you.

Gavan Murphy of kindly supplied us with a Spot Tracker Gen 3 device that was superb in allowing people to monitor and track our progress. Thank you.

Thanks to the following.

The Hynes Family, thanks for all your belief in me over the years.

A special thanks to my Father, Tony Hynes and my Mother, Hillary Good who gave me the opportunities as a young boy to go kayaking and brought me to the most special place every summer, Roaring Water bay, West Cork. Those childhood experiences have forged a lifetime love of being out on the water.

A special thanks to the Cahill family for all their support of Sean and his journey around Ireland.


A special thanks to all the volunteers and staff at Coast & Cliff Rescue stations and RNLI stations all around Ireland who let us camp, shower, refresh along the way. Keep up the great work at sea.

We’d also like to acknowledge and thank the lads who work 24:7 at the Marine Radio Centre’s at Valentia Island, Malin Head and Dublin. Thanks for watching over us and the weather updates every day. We really do appreciate your great work.

A final note, to our wives, your belief in us and un-ending support means so much. Without you, we could not have done this! Thank you.

Sea Kayak Sailing Performance

This fun little kayak sailing video was shot on a beautiful Summer's evening in Hood River Oregon located in the Columbia River Gorge.
The wind was West 8 to 15 knots, just the perfect speed for a relaxing paddle-sail. The sails are Kayaksailor 1.4m² made by Kuvia. They are incredibly fun to use.

The music in this video was made by the very talented David Lohstana. His website is Please support him!

Anglesey Sea Kayak Symposium Rough Water Day

Saturday of the 2014 Anglesey Sea Kayak Symposium saw a large group of paddlers heading out into Penrhyn Mawr. The intermediate group, of which I was a part, got into the races a little after peak flow (which the advanced group went for), but a day or so after spring tide, this was still a fairly pushy bit of water.

As the tide began to slacken, we took a brief stop for lunch before catching the last of the flood to run down the outer race and into Abraham's Bosom, where we played behind the stacks on our way to South Stack. We were out of the tide, but met it again under the bridge where the ebb had already set. This gave us some current to paddle against to get up through the gap, then into the ebb race on the outside before heading back to Porth Dafarch.

One or two people have posted comments about sit-on-tops (now deleted as irrelevant). Please note (for your own safety, apart from anything else) that all the kayaks you see are proper sea kayaks, with cockpits and spraydecks, and a reliable roll is essential for venturing out in conditions like this - SOTs are not suitable !
