Dingle dolphin tour in winter?

Does anyone know whether the Dingle dolphin Fungie is also around in winter? And if yes, is it possible to go out there on a tour boat? Will be staying in Ireland with two kids end of December and the first week in January. I'm sure it will be quite cold, but seeing a dolphin is probably worth a few shivers.

I once did this on New years day many years back - and got soaked completely through - but it was fun - just be well prepared with raincoats etc.....
