    Had a beautiful sunny day and saw just about every marine animal we could have seen during our tour. Aside from a Norwegian guy nearly knocking my phone out of my hands trying to get a picture of a whale, it was a great afternoon.

    Brilliant tour of the Blasket Islands - friendly & highly knowledgable guides who explained the history and wildlife of the Islands. Then we saw loads of dolphins and a Minke Whale! Guys were clearly passionate about what they do. Fantastic.
