Dingle Dolphin Boat Tour

Wildlife lovers will jump at the chance to see bottlenose dolphins in their natural habitat on this guided Dingle Bay dolphin cruise. Besides visiting dolphins, keep your eyes peeled for Fungie, the 13-foot (4-meter) bottlenose who has lived in Dingle Bay since 1983. On this tour, you’re guaranteed a dolphin sighting or you get your money back.

What to Expect

Choose between open and covered seating, as you board your boat for your fully guided cruise of Dingle Bay. Enjoy views of Dingle harbour, the Conor Pass, and ruined towers, as you glide along the coast in search of dolphins.

Besides the visiting dolphins who love these waters, look out for Fungie, the bottlenose dolphin who greets most ferries that come into the little town of Dingle: He’s lived in the bay since 1983. Celebrities, including Pierce Brosnan, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, and Cillian Murphy, have taken these boats to see him, and young and old alike will love his playful style.
