About Skellig Michael Cruises
Skellig Michael Cruises offers you the opportunity to visit Skellig Michael from a unique perspective. Many people who come to Portmagee are unable to climb Skellig Michael for a variety of reasons; young families, age, disability or time constraints etc. This is where we come in! Our eco tour circles both islands where you get up close to see the land marks, birds and historical sites. Skellig Michael Cruises are now pleased to announce from 2017 that we also do Landing Tours to Skellig Michael.

We had an amazing adventure, not to be missed and not for the faint hearted. Our boat crew, Hugh the very agile skipper and Rachel our guide, were amazing. Rachel was so informative and obliging not to mention engaging that we felt privileged to share her knowledge.

We had an amazing boat trip out to the Skelligs. As we left Portmagee, there was a misty fog but Hugh (boatman) said it would be lifted by the time we got to the skelligs. As we approached the islands, the mist was lifting and to see the skelligs like they were rising out of the mist was incredible. Rachel was able to answer any questions. Between boat trip and island climb, it was a memorable experience.

It's just the best. If you can get booked in and are lucky enough to get the right conditions to go, this is a lifetime opportunity to a place that feels not of this world. Sincere thank you to Rachel and Hugh of Paul Devane's charter boat Sea Breeze who took us out and back to the islands and gave us a coles notes of the history of the islands and the Monks who lived there around the year 800. Was a little disappointed to not be able to get some great drone shots of the islands but can understand the rule forbidding them. Absolutely blown away by the experience and very keen to visit again.

Excellent tour. We had Jason as our driver and he was amazing. Very welcoming and was great to hear about the Skelligs from a local. Would 10/10 recommend this. Great value for money.
