What people are saying about County Donegal

A very enjoyable afternoon. We boarded on time then the friendly skipper, Gerry, gave us all the essential information. The boat was a great size for the number of people on board and everyone was able to get a good view whenever anything was spotted. We weren’t lucky enough to see any whales but we did see some dolphins, seals and puffins. I would definitely go again, our whole group (3 adults, a teen and a preteen) thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience.

This trip was really nice. We saw dolphins, seals and a sunfish! We may go back in the future to see if we are lucky to see humpback whales! The only thing I wouldn’t recommend if you get dizzy easily as the Irish Sea can be rough sometimes.

We had a great trip and saw lots of dolphins. The staff were excellent and were happy to help and answer any questions. Little disappointed we didn't see a whale but overall an excellent trip with brilliant weather

Great tour with a very experienced captain We saw a lot of dolphins but also a small choice unfortunately I can't remember the name and two adult fin whales (second largest animal in the world)

It is a super trip where the captain does his best to show you dolphins and whales.
