Customer Reviews

I feel compelled to write this review having just spent a fantastic evening with Christopher and Mark on the Lady Patricia. Before we even left Courtmacsherry harbour we were greeted by a large number of seals chilling out on the rocks. Before long, our boat was besieged by a pod of almost 100 dolphins who followed us at touching distance!! Next, were hot on the tail of two Fin whales who whose spray was giving away their every move. To top it all off a number of Minkie whales put on a big display just meters from the boat! Christopher’s enthusiasm and knowledge was infectious and Mark’s years of experience as a skipper and ensured a brilliant evening! I would highly recommend this tour and cannot wait to go back out again!

Had an amazing trip last Sunday with our knowledgeable guide Christopher and skipper Brian. We witnessed a large number of Minke whales off the Seven Heads and were lucky enough to spot a Humpback whale (thanks to Christopher’s eagle eyes spotting the ‘blow’ in the distance) We also saw a huge pod of dolphins who had great fun jumping & swimming along side the boat! A great 4 hours spent out in open water with fantastic views of the Seven Heads peninsula. Looking forward to another trip soon!

What an absolutely amazing day we had last Sunday with Christopher & Brian. 4 hours of incredible encounters with dolphins, minke & humpback whales. It was breathtaking to see these beautiful species in their natural habitats and be able to see them so clearly in the beautiful calm waters. I would highly recommend everybody goes and jumps aboard this fantastic and affordable service available locally and experience it for themselves. You will not be disappointed….what are you waiting for?? go go go
