We run tours to the Sliabh Liag Cliffs, the highest sea cliffs in Europe standing 600m (1972 feet ). We operate from April to October, and sometimes earlier or later if weather is ok. With our 2 boats we can carry 24 passengers. The tour lasts about one and a half hours, and we take in many wonderful sights.Sometimes we are joined by wild life, like dolphins, whales, seals, and in May and June we often see basking sharks feeding on the plankton.Guests can go for a swim in the clear waters near Sliabh Liag we can supply wetsuits if you think the water is cold most don't need them.Some people are lucky enough to be joined by dolphins. Sailing Times 10am 12noon 2pm 4pm 6pm and 8 am/pm if needed.

Had a great trip on a brilliant sunny day - great experience, guide was informative but not over the top as can happen in some tours - let us sit back and enjoy the amazing views. Thoroughly recommend!
