This extremely popular family run business specialises in tailored boat tours for individuals, families and small to medium-sized groups.

Galway Bay is the West Coast of Ireland’s principal gateway to some of the most spectacular seascapes in Europe, including: the ecologically unique Burren limestone mountains, Connemara’s rugged coastline & the magical Aran Islands.

Jewels of Light on Galway Bay: Mindfulness Boat Trip


A boat with diamonds laced around my shawl stirred dreams that made a dolphin call.
From a dappled boat’s bow came forth a bounty, landed in a tide that was once plenty.
— Extract from Galway Bay Reflections, By Anna King


This unique mindfulness experience is an opportunity to feel the breeze in your hair, smell the scent of woodsmoke drifting from the far off-shoreline, and allow the gentle waves to lull you into a place of stillness. 

In addition to classes or workshops, nature-based meditations are a wonderful way of de-cluttering the mind & emotions.

The view across Galway Bay is truly breathtaking.  It is the perfect environment to take some 'time out' from your daily schedule for a few moments inspiration.

Focus upon the breath; breathe in the sensations of the world around you, and bring your attention into the present.  Let nature guide your senses, as you move from an intimate experience of self, to an expansive awareness of your connection to all things & the people around you.

‘The practice of mindfulness begins in the small, remote cave of your unconscious mind and blossoms with the sunlight of your conscious life, reaching far beyond the people and places you can see’ (Earon Davis).

Why do we need mindfulness?

Meeting the challenges of a complex world can be tough, especially when life appears overwhelming.  Creating space to be mindful in our daily lives can have a trans-formative effect on how we experience ourselves, and our day-day encounters.

‘Mindfulness refers to the awareness that emerges by paying attention, on purpose, non-judgementally to the present moment’ (Jon Kabat-Zinn).

Scientific research has confirmed that the regular practice of mindfulness can have a significant impact upon our health & well-being. It can boost the immune system, reduce stress, increase energy & improve memory. It can also ‘unlock’ confidence, inspiration & a renewed sense of purpose.

 ‘In the end, just three things matter: How well we have lived.  How well we have loved.  How well we have learned to let go’ (Jack Kornfield).
