The 3 hour wildlife trip with Bantry Bay Charters is a must if you’re in the area. It’s packed full of interesting things to see and it kept our 6 and 3 year olds excited the whole time! We even got a quick fishing lesson and our 6 year old reeled in a Pollock! Our skipper Niall was brilliant - very knowledgeable about the history and wildlife in the area and great with the kids. We all absolutely loved it… Highly recommend Bantry Bay Charters!

We did the 3 hour Marine Wildlife Tour and were not disappointed. Wonderful attentive knowledgeable crew, they were full of information about the history of the bay and surrounding areas. Very accommodating too, always checking if we were comfortable or if we were finding the swell too rough. Lovely quick tutorial on fishing out in the bay. Really beautiful scenery, luckily we had lovely warm wind and blue skies but I'm sure this trip would still be stunning even on a not so great day. Very children friendly, couple of other passengers had young children who seemed to be having a blast. Excellent value too. 10/10.

Fantastic experience from start to finish. Highly recommend all ages to go - fishing & informative sightseeing with excellent personalised service. Biggest pollock caught on our second day out. Sharon & Darren couldn’t have been nicer - even got a cuppa & some fresh cooked mackeral on the boat.

Thank you Darren and Niall for the most informative and entertaining 2hrs cruise around the beautiful bay of Glengariff. The children, from 3 to 9 years old, enjoyed every minute of it . Never a dull moment. My favourite part was looking at the seals in their natural element and of course holding a purple jellyfish which does not sting! Thank you for your dedication and enthusiasm. I would recommend Bantry Bay Charter to anyone.
