Fantastic experience. This is the best tourist activity I've ever done. We saw dozens of dolphins and three minke whales all up close to the boat. We also saw a humpback whale who was right beside us for around 15 to 20 minutes. It was an amazing experience. The staff were lovely and knowledgeable. I realise we we're lucky to see the amount of animals we did but even if we hadn't I still think I'd have enjoyed it due to the fantastic scenery and nice people. Could t recommend it highly enough.

Wonderful day out on Dingle Bay

We had a wonderful day on The Eco Blasket Tour. It was not called Dolphin and Whale Watching Tour from Dingle by the way. Our skipper and guide were fantastic and although we did not spot any whales we did see a pod of common dolphins, as well as grey seals and much more. The views of coastline and islands and the lighthouse were spectacular. Our only quibble was that the advertised snacks and beverages never materialised. Luckily we had brought our own.

Thank you for your review Cathal. Sadly in order to comply with Covid-19 new health and safety protocols as well as reducing our passenger capacity by 50% we are unable to hand out complimentary snacks, binoculars, wildlife information brochures etc. as heretofore but glad that you enjoyed your trip with Blasket Islands Eco Marine Tours from Ventry Harbour nonetheless. Also glad that you enjoyed unique views of Tiaracht lighthouse, the most westerly in Europe.

Super trip with lots of common dolphins, minke whales, three bottle nose dolphins, a harbour porpoise, some puffins, gannets and a few glimpses of a hump back whale. We set out to see the puffincolony on the rocks, but after a while the crew heard that a humpbackwhale was spotted and we changed directions to that. In the end we didn't see much of it, but that was compensated by all the other species we've seen. We'll have to come back for the puffins!

This was a great trip - one of the highlights of our time in Ireland. It's a relatively small boat -- there were only about a total of about 18 passengers on the boat. There's enough seating for everyone and the guide is very knowlegable. We went out on a very nice day sunny! and saw three minke whales and a buch of seals. It was a great day. A few recommendations: bring wine with you - they let you have it on the boat. Dress warm... hats, gloves and jackets. It's always colder on the water than on land. Bring hand santizer as there is a bathroom on the boat, but no soap or sink, really. Still a great trip and well worth it for a relaxing day out on the water.
