The captain sings, the crew plays music, the tea and coffee is hot (as is the rum), the rugs are comfy and the seals do as the captain says on the tin. The information on safety alone makes it worth the trip. All the kids enjoyed it as did we. Very reasonably priced with all the extras included.

I have done a number of trip with Seafari and believe it its an excellent experince for people of all ages and backgrounds.
This is a trip that gives a true taste of the history, the, fauna and the flora of the reagion with excellent, informative and at time quite humorous commentary even keeping the kids interested.
I could see that not everyone will appreciate the true scale of this activity and that is in people's nature. However I found that the the crew are and captain give a great atmosphere to the whole experience and even when there were not many seals around the trip as a whole was well worth it.
I have recommended this trip to anyone visiting Ireland

We recently spent a couple of days in Kenmare and took in the seafari trip. The cruise around the bay was excellent, the captain is a larger than life character and kept us both informed and entertained for the duration, without being over the top. There was live music being played on the boat too and refreshments were made readily available, including coffee with a shot of dark rum!! There was plenty of wildlife on show the day we were out and seeing the seals in their natural environment was quite special.
Overall a great day was had by everyone, thanks to the captain and crew of Seafari!

Very enjoyable trip for our family of 2 adults 4 kids value for money. The host was very entertaining and humorous, wonderful knowledge and insight. The trip was very special for all of us, the hot tea, juice and biscuits a welcome refreshment. Lovely woolen blankets for extra comfort if you got chilly, very clean loo and comfortable boat, lovely and friendly staff. Extremely well kitted out with necessary life saving equipment. As an attraction they take care to respect the well being of the seals and wildlife and this is a true reflection of the owners priorities which is very admirable.

Trip delayed for half an hour as the captain was late. 70 people squashed into the boat for over three hours. Patronising captain who likes the sound of his own voice and waffled continuously and repetitively for the entire trip. Terrible 'entertainment', badly played fiddle / pipes. Seals were impressive, but half an hour watching a few seals for 20 euro and 3 hours is not worth it.
