Leaving at 10am and 1.30pm and cruising amidst spectacular scenery and outstanding geology. Passing sandy beaches, deserted islands and towering cliffs. The area is rich in history, folklore and legends. We look for Basking Shark, Minke Whales and other marine animals and sea birds depending on time of year. Because of the area in which we operate we also see a huge variety of sea birds, mammals and other creatures.
On a recent sea angling trip we encountered 2 Sun Fish, giant wanderers of the ocean which had come inshore following jelly fish. Basking sharks are also seen during the summer months as are Minke Whales. Dolphins and Porpoise also frequent the area and always bring a smile to those aboard.
