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.

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.

A big thanks to Paul and his expert team at The Lagoon. The girls had a superb time yesterday evening. Great atmosphere with a very good approach from staff to people's safety. The Lagoon really is a MUST stop on the Wild Atlantic Way for family fun.

Our teenage son did this on his own and loved it. Well worth the money. We had great fun laughing when he fell in. I think 45 minutes is perfect. He was wrecked after it!😂

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

Great place for both adults and children, wetsuit available if you done bring your own, life jackets also, the lagoon is on about 3/4 foot deep so safe for all type of swimmers, water is salty (seems maybe dirty and stagnant to me but I'm no water expert). Big area for running around on and plenty of obstacles to tackle and then the slides

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

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,
