      Loads of fun
      We had a wonderful time. Learned a lot of history and saw lots of wildlife including dolphins, puffins, seals and jellyfish. We would recommend this adventure. Staff were wonderful too.

      What an amazing adventure!
      Dingle Sea Safari is an absolute must if you want to have a thrilling time discovering this beautiful coastline and all it has to offer. The team are fantastic, from booking and preparing us with our jackets etc, to the utterly exhilarating ride! The whole team was so friendly and everyone went out of their way to ensure we had a fabulous time. We loved every second, from the interesting and knowledgeable commentary from our captain, to the breathtaking beauty of the sea, landscape and the utter magnificence of the dolphins, seals and puffins - we felt totally privileged to be apart of the experience. Thank you, and I know we will return - I would highly recommend.

      Amazing Experience
      Brilliant few hours exploring the Dingle coastline from a different perspective. Colm is a fantastic sailor and clearly has a genuine love for the sea, the wildlife, and the Kerry coastline. We saw dolphins, seals, puffins and plenty of awe inspiring scenery. Highly recommend.

      Great adventure despite the weather
      The staff were very friendly and helpful and Sean was an experienced and great guide. Took us to lots of places around the island and we saw puffins, dolphins, seals, cormorants and other birds. It was rough on the way back and despite lots of layers and waterproofs I got a bit soaked which I suppose is part of the experience!

      MAYBE NEXT VISIT
      Due to rough seas the cruise ship my wife and I were on could not tender boats in to Dingle that day, and so we could not take the excursion, which may have been cancelled anyway for the same reason. Dingle Sea Safari generously helped us get a refund from Viator.

      Great Adventure
      This was a great adventure. Get ready though, it's not a cruise - you'll have to move with the waves. We saw dolphins, seals, and puffins, with lots of time for each. Highly recommend. For a wetter, albeit rougher ride, go to the front of the boat :)

      Amazing Time
      This was an amazing trip! The seats were like a saddle and so comfortable. The staff made sure we were all warm and dressed in waterproof clothing. The guide was very fun - knowledgeable and super sense of humor. Would definitely recommend and would most definitely do it again!

      Absolute best tour!
      I have had the good fortune to go on a nmber of boat tours around the world and this was by far the BEST! Great staff… very passionate about what they do. Fantastic boat with a knowledgeable skipper who knows his vessel and gives detailed insight to everything you see. Puffins, seals, dolphins, minke whale and incredible scenery. Outstanding value!

      Awesome Dingle Sea Safari Experience
      This sea safari was something I was looking so forward to during my stay in Dingle and I was so happy with the experience! Colm our captain and guide was awesome, gave us great information along the way! We saw beautiful cliffs, caves, seals, puffins and some dolphins! I loved the Rib boat as it traveled smoothly along the water! So much fun and I definitely recommend doing this adventure!

      From Unsure to Happy Customers!
      Fantastic experience!! We didn’t have a reservation and weren’t sure if the tour was right for us. The folks at the office were very friendly and informative and they were able to help us decide. The tour was amazing! Captain Sean was professional, funny, and extremely knowledgeable of the local geology, history, and wildlife. Highly recommend!

    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.

    Jimmy and Abby provided a wonderful outing for us today. They really went above and beyond to ensure we had the best chance to view wildlife and boy did we !! We saw puffins, seals and then on the return journey we saw a rare bait bomb with dolphins, fin whales, humpbacked whales and minke whales.
    Jimmy was also very knowledgeable about the geology and history of the the area. A very memorable trip and so special to have the boat to ourselves. Thank you!

    This was truly a once in a lifetime experience and I highly recommend it. Our tour guide, Jimmy, was extremely knowledgeable and fun! We went into a sea cave, learned about the geology/history of Dingle and The Blasket Islands and also got to see Puffins, Dolphins, and Seals. The wildlife was great, but to be honest we would’ve enjoyed this tour even if we didn’t see any animals. The covered, private boat was definitely worth the extra money as Jimmy was able to cater to us exclusively and gave up plenty of time to take pictures/move about the boat.

    Jimmy brought out a group of seven of us on a wonderful trip past Dingle harbour and beyond the Blaskets to see some dolphins and minky whales. We also stopped at caves and Jimmy had a great stories to keep us entertained as we made our way from spot to spot. The boat was super comfortable and smooth! A very enjoyable experience well worth doing!

    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.

    What a fantastic trip we had last weekend with the most informative guide ever, Jimmy. I can highly recommend this Blasket Island's trip. Took about 3 hours in total, amazing views of the Dingle peninsula and the Blaskets and then up close experiences of seals, dolphins and an incredible 10 minutes with a minke whale.
    The youngest in our group was 12 with teenagers and adults and all thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

    I can’t recommend this enough. We were originally booked on public open top trip but weather caused it to be cancelled. The private trip was brilliant and ideal on a slightly overcast day. We saw sea caves and arches and a seal colony on the blaskets. The highlight was multiple whale sightings. We’ve done 5hour whale watching trips and not seen half as much whale activity. The captain Sean was excellent. He was knowledgable, funny and very friendly. We will go again.

    The staff upgraded our experience to A private tour to accommodate us when weather forced the cancellation of the original trip. It was informative, interactive and Skipper Jim’s sense of humour kept us amused. We saw seals, dolphins and minke whales in addition to leaning about the stunning history and geography of the Dingle Peninsula. Two thumbs up!

    Could not recommend the sea safari highly enough. The tour guide Jimmy was excellent, highly educated on the geology and history of the area, and made the experience thoroughly enjoyable. Brilliant day out!
