Using my Marine Biology knowledge (in which I have a BSc), I love to share both the seafood and history of Bantry Bay with guests. I know the waters of this area extremely well so guests will always feel safe and I want to share this unique experience of the Wild Atlantic Way from the sea with visitors. I have a personal relationship with the local fishermen and they allow us to stop alongside their mussel rafts to get up close to learn about their industry.

Where you'll be

As well as learning about seafood, we also learn my history of the area while experiencing the natural wildlife and birdlife that we encounter - it's not uncommon to see seals or dolphin! This is the only opportunity to freely roam and explore the harbour of Bantry Bay. This together with my experience, knowledge and my unique relationship with local fishermen allows us to get up close and personal to Bantry fishermen to make for a magical trip

More tips

The self-drive powerboats are very easy to use, even if you've never used one before. The max speed is 15 km/hr which is a steady pace, but no real chance of anyone zooming away from the group.
