    Super Sea Safari
    Superb afternoon with Jimmy Flannery on a private rib hire for a group of clients who were keen to experience Dingle’s coastline, beautiful islands and wildlife out on the water. Very comfortable, exhilerating and informative trip, we learned alot, had loads of fun and didn’t get wet ! 10/10 experience from first contact (last minute idea) totally adaptible until we landed back on the jetty, highly recommended and great value.

    Wildest Atlantic Wayfarers
    Big Expectations Surpassed. 9 of us took to the waves with Jimmy our captain, guide and local champion. It was a foggy, atmospheric day and our most fun and uplifting experience in years! These waters and Islands are mesmeric and elemental, imagine our joy when Jimmy the Captain was the same! He is of Kerry, of Dingle Bay, of the Blaskets and you can hear the land and ocean speaking through him. We laughed repeatedly as we were wowed by nature. Best fun in years as a group, best value in decades. Wash Rinse Repeat...do it please.

    Must Do and will go again
    Must Do. Best outdoor experience I have had in years. So much wildlife, Common Dolphins (including babies), Seals, Beaked Whales, birdlife. Extremely accomodating crew with full knowledge of the area and wildlife. He let my young lad steer the boat on the way home which made it for him. Quality saftey and weather gear. Beautiful boat and really fast and steady. Well worth the money and I will be doing it again and telling anyone I can about it. Came home exhilirated and slept like a baby after the sea air.

    Brilliant from start to finish
    Brilliant experience and certainly one of the highlights of our trip to Dingle. Jimmy, our captain made everyone feel at ease and was as knowledgeable as he was friendly, bringing the trip to life, with a wealth of interesting information about the geography and history of this unique area as we drifted in and out of amazing sea caves, watched minke whales and dolphins surface beside the boat and saw a host of other wildlife including seals, red deer, puffins and many other sea birds. A great trip from start to finish. Great team to work with also. Mary kept us informed when the trip would be possible with windows in the unseasonable weather we had that week. Would highly recommend.

    Amazing Time
    Great experience. We saw two pods of dolphins, seals and the puffins. After 3 weeks in England and Ireland, our grandson said this boat ride was the best part of our trip!

    Amazing tour! We saw puffins, seals, and dolphins less than a meter from the boat. Jimmy was a great guide and taught us about history, geology, etc. It didn’t hurt that the weather was perfect! Definitely worth booking the private tour.

    Great Sea Safari
    Very fortunate to discover this Company/Family! An outstanding experience from our first conversation to their professional follow up.

    Amazing private tour
    Incredible sites and history of the Dingle coast and islands. Really enjoyed the captain’s personal stories and hearing about his family history making a living on the water. Best way to experience the sights. Far better than driving.

    Awesome - 10/10 would recommend
    Dingle Sea Safari delivered an awesome safari! Jimmy and his wife were excellent hosts, providing a thrilling adventure and sharing their passion for the ocean. Spectacular scenery, wildlife sightings, and their personal touch made it an unforgettable experience. Loved the fossiled dino skin ha! Highly recommended! No one got seasick which was a first for us!

    A must do adventure when in Dingle
    The whole experience from start to finish was nothing short of incredible. Jimmy was great fun and had plenty of knowledge of the area and wildlife. We saw so much of the beautiful coastline & wildlife….including dolphins, seals & puffins…Both the kids & adults enjoyed immensely. The wonderful Bridget also deserves a mention-an absolute pleasure to deal with. A must do trip if you are staying in Dingle. We would all highly recommend.

Guide was great - lots of interesting info and fabulous views of the scenery - blaskett islands, seals, deer on one of the islands and several pods of playful dolphins. The seas were a bit rough but we hardly felt it because the boat is so well built! Only 12 folks per boat so not too crowded. They provided waterproof pants and jackets - which were helpful since it was a pretty chilly day when we went out. Would go again for sure.

Enjoyed overall but was a little long. Caves amazing, blasket island interesting and seeing dolphins fun but feel like they could have shortened it a bit. Guide was wonderful

For anyone even remotely interested in the ocean and the Irish sea side this is definitely recommended. The close view on the cliffs of the Dingle peninsula as well as the surrounding islands were beautiful to behold. Being able to see so many marine wildlife was an amazing experience.

Note that this is a wild ride at moments so prepare yourself for bouncing across the waves if the sea isn't calm. Don't worry about lacking any proper clothing, you will be given this by the staff.

Had a wonderful time with Colm on our sea safari! Lots of history, breathtaking multicolored cliffs and great weather although very windy & choppy. We got to see seals, lots of dolphins and Mr. B the humpback whale! Colm let us spend about 30 minutes watching Mr. B dive, eat and give us the tail flip! Super fun and super wet but I would do it again!!!

I have taken the sea safari three times this year and each time it was a wonderful exhilarating experience. I saw seals, dolphins, basking sharks, deer, puffins and even a sun fish. The Cathedral rock is stunning especially in the evening when the sunlight streams through the natural arch. Great photo opportunities all around. Highly recommended.
