We invite you to join us for an unforgettable and memorable holiday experience!

Seafari is a Top Class, Award winning, Fun voyage of discovery. A friendly family-run river cruise on a comfortable, stable and fully equipped passenger vessel. The humorous and friendly captain and guide will give you an informative tour, cruising around the many islands and the bay’s sheltered waters between the Beara and Iveragh Mountain Peninsulas.

See tropical plants nurtured by the gulf stream, prolific birdlife living off the productive sea-water, such as the magnificent White Tailed Sea Eagles, and observe from close-up Ireland’s largest and most spectacular seal colony where 300 or more seals make their home in the paradise that is the Kenmare River.

There are lots of photo opportunities, be sure to bring your camera! People like to sit outside while watching seals so bring pullovers and jackets.

Everything else is provided, even a tot of rum for the adults. Full toilet facilities, no seasickness guarantee. Reservations essential—especially during low season.
