While staying on the Dingle Peninsula why not take a boat trip and experience the maritime history, marine life and breathtaking scenery of our coastal waters. Whether you want to spot puffins and birds, seals and whales, sea caves and islands or meet Fungi our resident bottlenose dolphin, there are boat tours to suit all your needs available from Dingle, Ventry, Dunquin and Ballydavid piers.
Experience nature up close by sitting back and enjoying the scenery on a leisurely cruise, strap yourself in for a thrilling Sea Safari on a rib or put some energy in and paddle your own sea kayak. Visit the Blasket Islands, go whale watching, dolphin watching or bird watching, learn about our marine environment or simply admire the dramatic coastline. Some boat tours will have a Marine Biologist or Wildlife Tour Guide on board. Most operators offer standard tours and can also be chartered for groups or special interests.
There are a huge variety of boat tours available on the peninsula leaving from Dingle harbour, Ventry pier, Ballydavid pier and Maharees. Ferries to the Blasket Islands depart from Dunquin pier and Dingle.
Boat trips are weather dependent and for safety reasons some smaller boats don't operate during the winter months. Fungi boat trips and Eco Tours run all year in Dingle Harbour.
