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 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.

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

Do not recommend. Staff are unfriendly and woman at entrance today was very rude and unhelpful. Water is also dirty and unclean. It still has to be said that me and my kids did enjoy the water park once we were on it.

Had a fantastic day out as usual, our annual visit to the lagoon! Changing rooms and toliets spotless, staff amazing and very helpful. We did the waterpark which requires a good level of fitness but thats clearly started in the terms and conditions,very detailed safety talk, lifeguards on the ball as per usual. Overall a fantastic day out , we will most definitely be back, looking forward to next year already. nHighly recommend.

Staff were so helpful and friendly. Boys were aged between 9 and 11 years in our group. They truly enjoyed every minute. Only complaint they had was they wanted more time for their session. Highly recommended!!!

We had a fantastic day with our three chikdren at the floating water park...even our 16 year old enjoyed it. Even the rain couldnt dampen the experience and the staff were very friendly. I would recommend wearing aqua shoes as it can be shallow and stony underfoot.

Kids and hubbie had a ball. Wetsuits optional, all wore life jackets and everyone seemed to enjoy. A little boat brings you from the pier to the feature in the lagoon. Life guard supervised also. Great spot. Would return

The water park is great fun for the whole family. The kids loved it....and the daddy loved it. The Iceberg is a hard climb but totally worth it. We're living locally and have gone a couple of times....and will be back.

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

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!

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.

A win win for parents and teenagers … Having two teenagers who are reluctant to go on holidays with their parents is a challenge but we could not recommend the Lagoon Activity Centre more - 1st day did water park and we were back a second day to race parents in kayaks across the
