The cruise was enjoyable but with young kids on board it was difficult to keep them interested. We loved seeing the eagles and were right up close to them, it was pretty amazing. Ray knows his stuff but the singing can be very corny at times (sorry Ray). The seals were good to see as well, however I feel we... More

Good commentary with a few laughs thrown in there, fantastic scenery and wildfire. A few hours out on the sea what more could you want?

Despite having had a home in the Kenmare area for the past 8 years, we had never been on the Seafari cruise. During this visit we decided to put that right and booked on the Tuesday afternoon cruise. As it was October, there were probably only about 20-25 people on the cruise which was great as there was more room... More

We had a great time with Ray and the crew. The cruise was just over three hours, and just what we needed after a few full days of walking earlier in the trip. We saw the seals, and the surrounding area in the bay is beautiful.

We arrived for our 2 hour trip at the allotted time forgetting about Irish time. Our captain arrived 1/2/ hour late but it was well worth the wait. Our trip actually lasted 3 and 1/2 hours and was one of the best experiences. When you see the boat it looks in need of an update but once on board you... More

Definitely one to do when in Kenmare! We went on this tour and found it very interesting and informative. Ray was an excellent host with a great sense of humour, always cracking jokes and kept the spirits high throughout the day. The crew also did a great job and were very friendly and attentive all day long. Would highly recommend... More

We really enjoyed this trip out to see the seals. Really get to see them up close & watch them playing with their young- really cute! Captain is very entertaining but was over 40mins late.

While on holidays in Kenmare, we took the safari Cruise. Bit late starting off, but recommend that you do book in advance. We were entertained from the start from the Captain as we headed off into Kenmare bay. The scenery was beautiful and it was great to look at the estuary views that you wouldn't see from the road. Enjoyed... More

Although we took a trip on the same boat last year, we enjoyed it enough to do it all again this year. The weather was kind, and the boat was fairly crowded, but there was room comfortably for us all. Apart from watching the scenery unfold before you, one listens to Captain Ray, who imparts much useful information relating to... More

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.
