Captain assistant kaitlyn were very nice and helpful. The captain had tons of information and stories to tell along the way. We saw many seals, goats,horses, and birds. Definatly a fun filled family day. The children will love it along with the adults. They provided tea and coffee along with delicious cookies. They also gave us blankets to keep warm because it gets a bit chilly out there but overall we had an amazing day experiencing seafari!

What a great last day to our holiday! A true nature lovers delight and made so much fun by Ray and his crew. This was a great afternoons entertainment for all ages and it's a real privilege to see such beautiful animals in their natural environment.

We were 4 adults and 2 kids- we rang ahead and were able to haggle for a cheaper price when we booked so delighted with that. Scenery was lovely- great way to see the view and lovely to be out on the water. Not many seals (maybe not season?) but ones we saw were cute. The captain was hilarious- but this wasn't on purpose :) you got the impression that he did these trips purely coz he needed the cash.he spent most of trip locked away steering the boat. Listen out for the fiddly-dee Irish music when it kicks in over intercom- very funny :) worth a trip!

A perfect day of sunshine, unusual for early October, didn't hurt, but the captain's banter added Irish color to the commentary as we cruised the bay. Seeing the seals was unique for us, but the eagles were "away for the day"... pictures helped, but it wasn't the same! We were very pleased that the orientation and safety information was very thorough. The snacks and drinks were simple and welcome.

At €25 (concessions available), this trip may seem a little steep, but so much is packed into the 2-3 hours that it is well worth it. With blankets for the cold, binoculars to view the wildlife and a huge amount of detail about the habits and habitats of the sea eagles, seals, cormorants, etc., as well as information about the area we were travelling alongside, everything was provided. We sadly missed the eagles, but spent a long time in close proximity to the seals happily sunning themselves on the rocks. Afterwards, we were revived with hot tea and coffee with biscuits and, for those who wanted it, a drop of rum. Many thanks to Ray and Carl for a great afternoon out.
