Overview

The most thrilling way to see Dingle Bay; experience the outstanding natural beauty of the Dingle coastline, paired with an exciting speed boat blast; approximately 6h round trip @ €60 Departing daily at 11am from Dingle marina (directly behind Tourist Office). Stopping on both legs of the tour we meet Fungi - Dingles residential Dolphin. Cruising out the harbour, increasing speeds along the beautiful Dingle coastline we take a wide arch out to sea where one of the many other whales, dolphins and sea birds are likely to feed. Exploring cave and rock formations along the way we then reach the Great Blasket Island, where we tour the Northern shore which is a hotspot for Grey seal activity; the island is home to one of the largest seal colonies of the Atlantic Coast. Landing for 3.5 to 4 hours, visitors can take a tour of the old Village provided by the OPW and explore the many wonders the island has to offer. A complementary Tea/Coffee is provided for all our customers.

I'm not sure since we went in August. It would be best to contact Billie directly. They are very good at responding. All their trips are dependent on weather condition. They initially changed ours to noon from 11:00 a.m.
