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

Captain Ray was late. he called Irish people paddies. when I told him it was a derogatory comment he retaliated. he took on a lot of small children inboard but didn't tell their parents beforehand they needed to be quiet. he was then very pedantic about people being quiet but talked all the way through the trip including while we...

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
