Went on 3.30 trip to see fungie. Supposed to be a one hour trip. No sign of the dolphin. Trip guarantees full refund if you don't see fungie. We didn't see fungie but instead of being back as expected around 4.30 we were not brought back until 5.15 . Office closed so no chance of refund of €30 for two... More

Dinglebaycharters, Owner at Dingle Bay Charters, responded to this review

Hi David We are sorry that had an unsatisfactory experience with Fungie (but he is wild and sometimes does not want to play) but we must apologise sincerely for the frustration you must have felt on finding the office closed. Rather than writing half a page of reasons (excuses) on how there was a rare breakdown of communication on Oct... More

Rode out on the Lady Breda to single the famous Dingle Bay dolphin. It's a one hour trip and there is a bathroom on this ship. We didn't use it so I can not comment further. It was a gorjus sunny day, and the captain did a terrific job of piloting the boat so there was just enough splash for... More

The five of us (Mom, Dad, 10-year old, Aunt and Grandmother) had a great time out on the Eco tour trip. The ride is beautiful - great way to see the area from a different perspective, and the outer Blasket Islands are some stunning scenery. The guide was great - lots of interesting stories about the history of the region.... More

We have been visiting the dingle peninsula every year for the last ten years with our children. We had, we thought, tried most activities and have had varying levels of enthusiasm from our three very different children. The Eco Tour on the Lady Breda was the first completely unanimous 10/10 we have had. Even my 13yr old (for whom everything... More

The Blaskets - a magical place. We did the eco-trip this year on the Lady Breda which was a bit spoilt by the female guide shouting into the tannoy for most of the trip. The commentary was lost on us as it was so loud and distorted that we couldn't understand what was being said (shouted). Last year's trip to... More

We took a private boat tour with Skipper Michael on Emma Delia as a family group (5 adults, 3 kids & 1 dog!). We got to see Fungie, caught some mackerel and saw some of the coast all within an hour! If you can it is definitely worth the money and Mike was great at making sure we had a... More
