Was worth the price of the ticket without seeing the dolphin, but we did see him. The views of Dingle harbor are great. It is amazing how the dolphin will come up an play around. When we went there was an individual (a dolphin whisper?) who was interacting with Fungi. It as just like something you see at Sea World, only in the wild. A fun hour. Great for children.

My sis and I took the one-hour tour of Dingle Bay with a bunch of other tourists in hopes of getting a little glimpse of Fungie, the dolphin who took up residence in the harbor years ago. We really just expected a nice boat ride, but were just as thrilled as the French kids on the boat with us when the dolphin started following the boat and doing leaps and flips in the water. It was great fun waiting to see where he would pop up next, and toward the end of the cruise he was leaping and turning in the best Flipper style.
We asked if someone feeds him to get him to perform and we told, no, he's just a ham.

I had the chance to meet the family that operates this business at the Marina Inn the night before. They are very friendly and welcoming! The tour was exciting and Fungie was curious and hung out for a while. Thanks again Bridgett, Jill, and Jimmy! You helped make Dingle the highlight of my trip to Ireland!

A group of us took a Dingle Harbour Cruise as part of a weekend deal with Benners Hotel, and it was a really enjoyable trip.The guide was very enthusiastic and informative and the boat was very comfortable. It had a sheltered area to protect from the wind or rain plenty of seating outside with canopy covering over it,there also was a wheelchair accessible toilet.We even had a visit from the famous dingle dolphin Fungie.A trip well worth taking for any age group!

We took the Fungie tour twice in one week, it is so lovely to see Fungie up close - really beautiful, my boys were so excited to see a dolphin in the wild (and he realy is wild - the frst trip he was hard to spot because he was fishing). The crew of the boats give you some great facts about the area and Fungie himself and it's a lovely way to see the coast. We cant wait to go back next year!
