Our family of six, kids ages 5 to 13, loved this boat trip. We got to see lots of wildlife and baby seals which my kids loved. They also loved the lollipops and tea and cookies. Thanks captain Ray and crew.

This was an amazing humerus insight into sea-life and bird-life of the beautiful County Kerry. From start to finish it was a hilarious voyage into the natural wild sealife of Kenmare. This is a must-do attraction in Kerry

This is a must!!!! We were very lucky with the weather and had a great tour. We witnessed seal pup being born and it was just magical. I love seeing Ireland from a different view and Ray and his crew gave me a perfect view of the Island. The running commentary does get annoying at times as I like to... More

This was a very fun boat tour. The captain was very entertaining and his knowledge for the area was amazing. We saw seals and got very close to them on the boat. The captain pointed out wildlife and gave history and information on everything and anything we saw! The tour is about 2 hours, however the captain takes his time... More

We booked this company a year before our wedding as we were recommended them and wanted things to be sorted out early. Everything was fine, emails sent etc, etc. As we live a long distance away from kenmare, we rang captain Ray (business owner/operator) to say we were coming down to kenmare for a weekend (5weeks before the wedding) in...

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?
