Our Sea Safari
Our daily Sea Safari offers a unique experience of West Cork and its Islands from the sea. Our departure ports, Schull & Colla Pier offer an unparalleled gateway to the Atlantic and the West Cork Islands.
We are located in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the centre of Roaring Water Bay’s Special Area of Conservation and designated whale and dolphin sanctuary. On each tour we get to experience up close and personal the treasures the Atlantic Ocean has to offer. You will see a wide variety of bird life although we can’t guarantee what you will see on your trip. The birds have their own migration and breeding patterns on our Island’s at different times of the year. We visit our local Seal colony where at low tide we can watch them resting on the rocks and splashing into the water to swim out to watch us. Our proximity to the gulf stream and richness of the waters around us mean our tour allows you to experience all manner of marine life, from playful Dolphins to enormous majestic whales and many a fin and flippered creature in between.
We are surrounded by Island’s and on each tour we make a stop at either Cape Clear or Sherkin Island for some local refreshments and we get an opportunity to experience the unspoiled and magnificent scenery.
