We were lucky to start the sunniest day of our trip with the Dingle Sea Safari. This 3 hour boat tour around the Dingle Peninsula was one of, if not, the highlight of our Ireland travels. Our captain, Colm, was fantastic - raised in Dingle he had a love for his home and a deep respect & knowledge of the wildlife. Witnessing Slea Head from the sea was breathtaking as Colm took us into caves and educated us about the geology & history of Ireland.
The trip only got more exciting when we met the hundreds of seals lazing on the beach. Hearing them all barking & waddling was a joy to see. A few of the pups would playfully pop their heads up closer to the boat.
We then witnessed the Puffins & other seabirds, before finally sighting a family of dolphins. Nothing could describe the wonder of witnessing these incredible creatures popping up alongside the boat. Every passenger seemed to revert to a child-like state with goofy grins all over our faces which only grew when we set our sights on a minke whale. Colm took his time to make sure we spent time with them. The lady beside me was in tears stating that it was a dream come true
If you love nature, history & the wind in your face - this is a must for your travels. Colm was a skilled driver and they provide all the necessary coats, pants & life preservers to make it a comfortable & safe experience.
