Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful time on the trip. The skipper and his 2 also lovely employees did all the best to let everyone feel comfortable. It was not only the sealions and the birds which made that trip special but also the entertainment (singing skipper) and the musician crew. Thank you very much for that trip, i... More

This was a fantastic trip. The tour lasted about 2 1/2 hours and we had ample opportunity to observe the sealions and other wildlife. Skipper Ray is very entertaining and the two girls on board, Caitlin and Carmen also entertained us with music. It's definitely worth the money.

We arrived at the pier with ample time to register as it is advertised that the departure time is 2-30pm. The skipper "Ray" arrived 20 minutes late . The hostess was busily going about taking details of passengers . Eventually when we got sailing we had to go through three safety announcements . Amusing as they were I felt they... More

This boat trip is brilliant. You learn so much about the area and the environment in which the seals live in. We saw loads of seals and other wildlife and the captain of the boat was very respectful of the seals and their pups. We really enjoyed it. They give out free tea,coffee and buscuits towards the end which is... More

On our first full day in Ireland, we booked this cruise for our extended family - five adults, one teenager and one child. The 2.5 hour cruise was informative and fun for all of us. The scenery on both side was magnificent and seeing the seals up-close was a bonus.

This cruise on the bay was fun and enjoyable--the captain gave a great running description of the sights, with special attention to the wildlife along the way...it was a special treat to see several groups of seals with their pups, cormorants, and diving gannets. The trip took at least two leisurely hours, with humor from the captain and music from... More

We intended to join the cruise but there was only steep stepped access down to the boat. We have child in wheelchair who couldn't make it so had to turn around disappointed.

I was visiting with a group of people in Kenmare, Ireland, and we decided to go on a Seafari cruise to see seals and whatever else might happen by. It was a lot of fun; the captain and his assistant were very professional and knowledgeable about the area and it's wildlife. They pointed out things of interest along the cruise... More
