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 €55 euro pp. Departing daily at 11am from Dingle Marina (directly below the Tourist Office). Stopping on both legs of the tour to see Fungi, we cruise out of the harbour, increasing speeds to blast along the beautiful Dingle coastline taking a wide arch to give ourselves a better chance of spotting one of the many other whales, dolphins or porpoise and abundance of sea birds of Dingle bay. Reaching the Great Blasket Island we tour to the Northern shore which is a hotspot for Grey seal activity, the island is home to a large colony and we frequently see large numbers here. We then land our passengers for 3.5 to 4 hours where they can take a tour of the 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. On the return trip we take a wide arch off the island to give ourselves a good chance of spotting some wildlife again then cruise close to the coastline and explore the spectacular cliffs outside Dingle harbor.No Rush or time restraints for a personal easy going trip with a maximum capacity of 12 passengers. The 'Peig Sayers' Stormforce 11 is the flagship of the Redbay range, offering the best that RIBs can offer. She has a indoor 12 seater cabin for those who want to keep dry and warm. The Peig Sayers incorporates quality, speed, safety and comfort. You are not seeing the best of Ireland unless you catch it from the water. Our Speedboat Eco-Tour takes you from Dingle Harbour out and around the beautiful peninsula coastline. Feel the fresh Atlantic air on your face as you experience breathtaking views of the staggering cliffs, wildlife that is native to the Dingle shores.
