Pedal Boats

Easy and safe fun on the water

perfect for the whole family

Pedal Boats at the Lagoon Activity Centre.

Pedal boats are a great way to spend some time on the water. Whether you’re looking to get some exercise or just relax, our pedal boats are perfect for all ages!

You may be wondering: “How do I ride this thing?” Well, it’s easy! Just sit down and start pedaling. The boat will move forward, and you can steer by turning the rudder. (Don’t worry—we provide an instructor who will show you how!)

We highly recommend pedal boats for anybody new to watersports, is apprehensive about the water, or is simply looking for a low-stress, relaxing time on the lake!

These boats are almost impossible to capsize, which makes them a great choice for beginners. In addition, they are exceedingly easy to operate. If you know how to ride a bicycle, you already have the skills necessary to run a pedal boat. Their motion is controlled by pedaling in either way, so they may travel either forward or backward. The boat’s stern rudder is controlled by a steering lever in the centre of the vessel.

The Lagoon in Rosscarbery is sheltered, making the water relatively tranquil and it is only 3 feet deep in most places (does not apply to waterpark).

Pedal Away Your Worries!

Pedal away your worries and enjoy the serenity of the lagoon with a pedal boat. This activity is fun for all ages and is a great way to spend time with family and friends.

A great way to get around on the water and see the sights. Our Pedal Boats are ideal for all ages and require just a gentle push off from shore to get you out of the dock area. No need for experience or worry about capsizing, once you get going, it’s smooth sailing!

The pedal boats are a fun way to spend a few hours on the water, whether it’s as part of a family day out or with friends.

They are available for rent during daylight hours, and we have a variety of boats to choose from. We have a boat that can hold up to 4 people, so bring your friends and family along for the ride!

Pedal boating is fun! Imagine cruising through the lagoon on a hot summer’s day. Suitable for all ages, simply turn up and go right out onto the water. Ideal for families with small children, or groups who want to spend some time on the water without the need for a high skill level.

We had a great time at The Lagoon Waterpark. The five of us took part, kids from 8 to 15 and we had great fun. The only thing for us was that a couple of the inflatables could have had more air in them and showers stopped before we had a chance to use them when we finished,

Great family day out. The centre is run very well. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We've done a few of these water activities and this one is by far out favourite. You take a short boat ride out to it which was very exciting for the kids also. Toilet facilities are very clean and plenty of hand sanitizer. The whole experience from start to finish was fantastic. We'll definitely be returning. Would highly recommend. Our kids are 13 and 11.

Book early. Always a hoot. For all ages! I'm early 50s and go with the teenagers every summer. The new pyramid is a testing climb but worth it. I started with this and got the wetting out of the way early on! Could do with clearing out of the pond scum which accumulates in two

Absolutely blown away by my experience at the Lagoon. Staff were exceptional and went above and beyond my expectations. The lads doing the lifejackets and wetsuits were so friendly and professional. The waterpark itself was great craic and all my group had a ball. The whole set

We went as a family (4 kids ages 16, 14, 6 and 4, and 2 adults) a day out to celebrate the 16th birthday! It's hard to impress the older lads, but they thoroughly enjoyed this! They went on the water park, we watched for a while before bringing the smallies out on a pedal boat.

Absolutely enjoyed this activity centre, it's even great for those people who have a fear of water or can't swim, cos the water is only 3ft deep. So safe enough. Definitely go on this again, loads of fun to be had, in good weather and bad. Brilliant fun

Visited the Lagoon during the Summer with my two kids and they had a ball. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant. Lovely coffee available too. Shout out to a young lad called Ciaran who went over and beyond to help us. We look forward

Booked for family of 4 as part of our holiday in West Cork and Paul the manager was very accommodating when we had a problem with the time we booked. We had great fun on the inflatables…kids loved the slide and the hamster wheel! There are lovely warm showers after too. Staff were great. We had previously been as a few times and and we will definitely be back again…it doesn’t get old!

Went to the Lagoon Activity Centre today for the first time and we had a ball. Went on the paddle boat and got a kayak each. Everything was very straight forward. Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful and such amazing value. Will definitely come back for some more fun when I come to west cork again.

The experience was mixed. If you’re fit you’ll get lots from it . Less so if you’re less so. We went with our Autistic son who felt limited in the things he could because the access to certain obstacles involved going through others he couldn’t manage. Other reviewers have

Kids ages 8-12 enjoyed it, adult thought it was good. The only negative is that groups tend to take over a session too much. There was a group of about 10 teens and our kids couldn’t get on certain things (e.g. rotator) as the group took it over for most of the session. Lifeguard should break this kind of hoarding up. The place is run by very young staff (teens), punctual and polite but I do wonder how they would cope if a serious incident occurred. Overall 4 happy people, but not racing back

I would likely recommend The Lagoon Activity Centre. The family really enjoyed the Total Wipeout style course. They were all smiley and tired afterwards. The coffee was good and the place is very well run and easy to navigate. It is a must see and do in West Cork!
