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.

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.

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.

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

Great craic, I went with my 9 year old son. Wrecked afterwards but definitely worth it. Looking forward to doing it again.

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.

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!

Great spot. My 2 boys had a ball. Great facilities, great value. Friendly staff.

This activity centre is so much fun, and easy to find in Roscarbery! The staff were wonderful and friendly. Life jackets are supplied, and wetsuits are available if you need them. There are showers and restrooms available, and food to purchase also. The Lagoon Activity Centre is a great laugh. It's a bit on the slippy side, so be prepared to fall into the water if you're walking or running too fast! The water is salty, and while it's around 3ft deep in some places, it's much deeper in other parts. You can also hire out peddle boats, stand up paddle boards and kayaks also. A great activity centre for both adults and kids! 5 out of 5!!
