Brian O’Sullivan of O’Sullivan’s Marine, launches Tralee Bay Maritime Centre this week in the former Tralee Bay Sailing School premises in Fenit. Brian plans to fully utilise this fantastic facility and will run it on a private, commercial basis. He has over 36 years’ experience in the maritime sector including the running of O’Sullivan’s Marine boat sales, boat building, boat repairs, engine maintenance, in store and on-line chandlery shop ( and boat surveying. On a personal level he has a love for all water based activities, especially keelboat racing and is often frustrated that there isn’t easier access to the water in Ireland, an Island nation. He said “I am adamant that water activities and courses for all ages (7+) will be more accessible to everyone. You do not need to be a member of a club or have deep pockets to try a new water-sport or get on the water”. The activities on offer are: Dinghy Sailing (adult & junior), Keel-boat tuition, Kayaking (sea & open top kayaks), Stand-up Paddle Boarding (SUP’ing). Kayaks & SUP’s are available to rent to the public at set times weekly, subject to weather and tides.
Safety: Brian and his team take your and your children’s wellbeing very seriously, so whenever you are out on the water, so too are safety boats. There will be designated areas for various activities buoyancy aids can be provided if you don’t have your own. The activities are always supervised and his team will be on hand to assist you.For more information or to get a booking form Website: | Phone: 087 – 760 6795 | Email: Facebook: Tralee Bay Maritime Centre Photographs: Featured are Brian O’Sullivan and Frances Clifford
