It was a beautiful day, short downpour, we saw seals, common dolphins and some saw a whale. There were lots of sea birds. Staff was great- friendly and knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. Totally worth it - fun.

The trip was cancelled and we were too late informed! Later on, we were told that there was another boat leaving two hours earlier to do the dolphin watching.

Hello Barbara. I am sorry that you missed the rescheduled tour with Blasket Islands Eco Marine Tours. The time of this tour was changed due to forecast bad weather and sea conditions as per our published Terms & Conditions, as our boat trips on the open Atlantic ocean are always subject to suitable weather and sea conditions. We informed all our customers who booked directly on our website, but you booked through a third party booking agent. and not directly on our website. This agent was informed of the change in schedule the day before, but obviously did not tell you in time. You probably need to redirect your review to the booking agent and /or complain to them that they did not inform you of the change in schedule. But we are very sorry that you missed your trip with Blasket Islands Eco Marine Tours.

Fantastic trip to Blasket islands and an opportunity to take in the beautiful views and coastline of the peninsula. Spotted a dolphin pod, plenty of birdlife, basking sharks and the Blasket island inhabitants from hares to the seal colony on the beach. Mick, skipper and crew are very welcoming, knowledgeable and considerate of marine life. Highly recommend.

Whales and dolphins that we came across. The Blasket Islands and the resident seals. The weather was perfect. The release of a Manx Shearwater bird from our boat trip.
