The Saltee Island tour departs from Kilmore Quay in Wexford. The boat tour leaves a 2 pm, weather permitting and lasts approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. It is advisable to book a place on the boat as it only takes a maximum of 12 people on each tour. The tour is not guided but the chap driving the boat, when asked was able to give us some information on the birds on the island.
I took this trip with my trip with my 2 teenage daughters and another couple. The weather was fine and the sea was extremely calm which added to our trip very enjoyable. The boat takes you very close to each of the islands and pausing to give you an opportunity to take photos. I would advise a camera with a good zoom to get the most from the experience.
The boat owner also runs a day long trip to the island which we would like to do some time in the future. This trip leaves at 11:00 am and returns at 4:30 pm. A packed lunch and lots of water is recommended for this trip as there are no facilities on the island.
The cost for the trip we did was €20 per person. There is a charge of €10 for children under the age of 12.
The islands are stunning and wildlife is amazing. If you are in this part of the country take the time to see the Saltee Islands.
