A perfect choice for a day in the Ring of Kerry. Bring on your camera, warm clothes and be prepared to see the beauty of nature.

Only 20 of us on the morning two hour cruise on a boat that could take 100; we greatly benfitted therefore from being able to wander around freely and take in the wildlife from many different vantage points. Perhaps a little lacking in atmosphere with only 20 on board as the captain tried valiantly to get us to respond to... More

We enjoyed a three hour cruise on the Seafari along the Kenmare estuary. Skipper Ray is charming and entertaining and keeps the whole event moving along with his commentary and knowledge. The scenery is spectacular and one gets very close up to the seal colonies. Live music from Eimear was wonderful. Great bird watching also. Very family friendly.

Our extended family of 12 booked on the 3pm cruise however we finally got moving closer to 4pm. Having made dinner plans at 8pm we though we would have plenty of time however this outfit has no concept of time with us getting back at 7.30 pm. Regarding the cruise itself we really enjoyed the boat trip out to see... More

It was a very sweet, beautiful and fun experience. We travelled with 3 generations and all of us had such a good time. The whole trip included fun, unexpected nature sides and very interesting knowledge about Irelands wildlife. Thank you for a beautiful afternoon. We can highly recommend this adventure!

Went on Seafari with my family (ages 21,19, 16 and 12) and my father. It was a beautiful day and we saw lots of seals. Captain Ray is well known for his talking and he definitely came through. The trip out was a bit lengthy but the seals were well worth it. The cookies and coffee on the way back... More

Did the trip on Monday, 4th August.Really interesting commentary and fascinating watching the gannets dive. Amazing how close we could get to the seals - hats off to the skipper. We'd highly recommend taking the trip.

This tour was an unexpected highlight of our visit to Kenmare. 3 adults and 3 teenagers, we were captivated by Seafari, skipper and crew. Raymond Ross is a goldmine of fascinating information about the marine life of Kenmare Bay. Watching the seals while he described their habits and habitat was magical. Lovely extras - binoculars, blankets, refreshments, live trad music,... More

Brilliant trip around Kenmare Bay and saw lots of seals, which was magical, but only because of the Captains expertise in the area who explained in great detail that it was important to be quiet to not frighten the seals away. We took off on Irish time ie 1/2 hour late, but that's expected. Captain excellent and very informative and... More

What a wonderful experience! Don't be mislead, this is one extremely knowledgable captain who is passionate about the area and the seals. We loved it and learned at the same time. Loved the "medicine". Just a great afternoon!
