Get up close and personal with roaring fishing trawlers, gaze at the rugged coastline, observe remote lighthouses and ancient castles, discover shipwrecks, encounter wildlife and sea life.

Wonder at each viewpoint spanning with history spanning from the 1600’s to the present day, including Puxley’s mansion, the ruins of the O’Sullivan Bere Castle, Bere Island’s Martello towers and military base, and the Roancarrig and Ardnakinna lighthouses.

Along our cruise, watch out for whales, dolphins, basking sharks, seals and otters and a dazzling array of seabirds, including gannets and puffins, which forage in these rich feeding grounds.
