See & Do
Seafari was founded in 1993 by Raymond Ross, marine biologist, ocean sailor, photographer, pantomimest, singer/entertainer/comedian, nature lover/tree hugger, lover of all things marine and proud to be an Irishman! A family run business staffed by musically talented and friendly crew who are eager to share their love of nature and Kerry providing you with an unforgettably unique and memorable holiday experience with a Sea Safari around Kenmare Bay.
Seafari cruises invite you to explore the prolific wildlife of Kenmare Bay on Ireland’s premier seal-watching and eco-nature boat trip. In our comfortable and sheltered passenger vessel, we will transport you from the picturesque Kenmare Pier in County Kerry into the magical and tranquil waters of Kenmare Bay.
From there we travel to one of the largest seal colonies in Ireland with over 300 of these beautiful creatures. Look out for secret castles and playful otters as well as a wealth of bird-life along the way. Seafari’s knowledgeable Captain and informative guides will show you the historical sites and explain how the ice age has shaped this beautiful bay.
White-tailed sea eagles have recently been re-introduced into Kerry and we are lucky enough to get regular sightings on board Seafari. The birds are proving extremely popular with tourists, many of whom make the trip to Kerry specifically for a chance to view these magnificent birds on our Sea Safari around Kenmare Bay.
Observe Ireland’s largest and most spectacular seal colony close-up and see if you can spot Kathleen, a stunning seal with a red coat. The rumour is that Kathleen is a selkie, a seal which was once human according to legend.
Seafari is situated at the end of Kenmare Pier and is signposted from Kenmare town centre. Just look for the seal face!
The road winds ahead toward another destination, another adventure. Through rock and rush, from sea to sky, let Beara take you on a voyage of discovery.
