We sailed from Dingle Harbour in the morning. That morning a whale was spotted by a fisherman. Tried to find it but did not succeed. Saw 4 species of dolphins instead. Had lunch on the Blaskets and a guided tour over the island. Lovely scenery....More

This was a fantastic experience. Very memorable! We saw lots of sea life, including lots of dolphins swimming near us. The island is just beautiful. I would repeat at any time!

This boat tour is fantastic. Billy took us out along the cliffs in the bay, showing us all of the geological formations and fossils. He even brought us up close under the cliffs, showing us the sea arches. Then on the way to the island,...More

I'm not sure since we went in August. It would be best to contact Billie directly. They are very good at responding. All their trips are dependent on weather condition. They initially changed ours to noon from 11:00 a.m.
