Family Dolphin Sightseeing Cruise, County Clare

  • A fully guided dolphin watching experience for the whole family to enjoy!
  • See the Shannon Dolphins in their natural surroundings whilst learning about their lifestyle and habitat
  • Named one of the ‘Top Ten Wildlife Attractions in Ireland’ by BBC Wildlife Magazine

Marvel at Ireland’s only resident group of Bottlenose Dolphins in their natural habitat whilst enjoying spectacular views of the Loop Head Peninsula on this Dolphin Sightseeing Cruise.

Upon arrival at your experience you will be met by your friendly Skipper, who will be your guide for the cruise. You will meet your fellow experience goers and then it’s ‘all aboard’ the custom built dolphin watching boat!  After a brief safety demonstration and an overview of your trip, it is time to depart the harbour!

You will cruise out in to the Shannon Estuary, which is home to about 160 Bottlenose Dolphins. Your guide will explain to you about the dolphin’s lifestyle and habitat and may even introduce you to individual adult dolphins, distinguishable by their dorsal fin marks. With calves being born every year, it’s a real treat to see them play!

While seeing a group of dolphins in action is central to this sightseeing cruise, you might also meet a grey seal emerging from one of the many caves or perhaps you’ll spot a herd of wild goats grazing on the craggy hillside. Depending on the conditions, you may cruise close to the colossal Atlantic cliffs to show you the seabirds that visit the area to nest each year… every trip is truly a unique experience!

When you return to dry land you will take away truly unforgettable memories of this amazing dolphin sightseeing cruise!
