About Skellig Michael Cruises
Skellig Michael Cruises offers you the opportunity to visit Skellig Michael from a unique perspective. Many people who come to Portmagee are unable to climb Skellig Michael for a variety of reasons; young families, age, disability or time constraints etc. This is where we come in! Our eco tour circles both islands where you get up close to see the land marks, birds and historical sites. Skellig Michael Cruises are now pleased to announce from 2017 that we also do Landing Tours to Skellig Michael.

We had a short trip with Paul Devane on the Sundance. Weather would not permit us to go too far, but the ride was amazing. We were offered a rain check, but impossible, as we were on a tight schedule. All in all an experience,...More

A trip to the Skellig islands is highly weather dependent. We were too late to get one of the slots to land on Skellig Michael so we opted for the cruise around the islands. It was a sunny day with mild breezes, but our captain...More
