We run tours to the Sliabh Liag Cliffs, the highest sea cliffs in Europe standing 600m (1972 feet ). We operate from April to October, and sometimes earlier or later if weather is ok. With our 2 boats we can carry 24 passengers. The tour lasts about one and a half hours, and we take in many wonderful sights.Sometimes we are joined by wild life, like dolphins, whales, seals, and in May and June we often see basking sharks feeding on the plankton.Guests can go for a swim in the clear waters near Sliabh Liag we can supply wetsuits if you think the water is cold most don't need them.Some people are lucky enough to be joined by dolphins.

Sailing Times

10am 12noon 2pm 4pm 6pm and 8 am/pm if needed.

A fantastic boat trip. Wonderful captain who let the children steer the boat. Anyone visiting sliabh liag by foot should also see in from the sea. Its spectacular.

Wow. The Sliabh Liag Boat Tour is absolutely breathtaking. Sooooo worth doing! By ringing up fairly last minute, Paddy the company owner got in touch with the skipper Kevin and reserved two places for me. When we arrived, our places were there for us and not only that but they even organised a second boat to go on that 2pm... More

We enjoyed this trip so much in 2015 that we came back again. This time we had Kevin as our skipper who is professional as well as witty . The trip this time was a little more choppy ,but this only added to the magic of these beautiful majestic cliffs. The trip takes approximately an hour and forty minutes and... More

This experience was so fun last year, I returned again this year, as this was my favorite tour to do in Donegal, and plan again for next year. Very relaxing, Paddy is an expert captain and quite a people person, i did manage to get lucky both times with weather. Very beautiful and peaceful, make sure to look for sheep... More

A lovely morning ride to see Slieve League from the water. Others on our trip thought it better than the Amalfi Coast and Cliffs of Moher.

We had a fantastic outing with Paddy. The cliffs were breathtaking and he was a knowledgable and entertaining guide. The whole trip was great value for money and we'd highly recommend seeing this way to see the spectacular coastline.

We took the trip along the cliffs with our dog. You might have to book in advance as the trips get very busy. There is some room under cover but be prepared for a bit of splashing. The views are amazing and the birdlife interesting but no puffins. I would recommend this trip.
