Ride the Blackwater on an Everglades airboat

PDF Print E-mail

Europe's first everglades style airboat has arrived in Youghal, offering thrilling rides up the River Blackwater, Ireland's 'forgotten' natural gem. Reaching speeds of up to 40mph the airboat will open the river to many more tourists, who can marvel at its natural beauty. Rides of just an hour or so will be able to get to Cappoquin and back, passing by stately homes, castles and unbroken forest - the home of otters and egrets. 

The arrival of the airboat has not been without controversy. National and international press have been alerted by some residents who live beside the river and point out that the boat may destroy the habitat, or that it's too noisy for the local wildlife. Others have pointed out that the airboats come from the everglades, another protected habitat, where there are no such concerns. The government Department of the Marine considered the issues and has issued a licence to the owner.

The airboat rides are taken from Youghal town quay.
