Boat Trips to the Skellig Isles
“majesty, awe and wonder”
Live the Experience
this is your chance…
A second generation Skelligs’ boat skipper, John O Shea has the local islands in his blood and he departs daily for the Skelligs from Derrynane Harbour, a smuggling port used by the O’Connell clan of the famous Daniel ‘The Liberator’ O’Connell.
The Skelligs Tour
The tour takes you past Deenish and Scariff Islands in the wildlife abundant Kenmare Bay and the highlight of the trip is a 2.5 hours stopover on Skellig Michael – a 1,500-year-old monastic settlement which is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the return journey, you can take in close-up views of the Little Skellig, home to over 27,000 breeding pairs of gannets – making it the second largest gannet colony in the world. If you are lucky, we may be also be joined by curious dolphins on the return leg, while your skipper John O’Shea will often catch a few fish to cook and share on the voyage home..
