skellig eco tour

wild eco experience

The 4 vessels in our fleet allow us to cater for up to 48 people as part of our Eco Tour. This tour does not land on Skellig Michael. It offers a different but no less unique experience of the Skellig Islands and the Skellig Coast.

You can take in the majestic scenery that has made its way to the big screen more than once. Skellig Michael is home to Luke Skywalker from Star Wars, while Lemon Rock, located beside Little Skellig made an appearance in Harry Potter.

Allow yourself to be immersed in the wonder and folklore of the Skellig Coast as our expert tour guide details the amazing history and many stories passed down through time. You will see an abundance of wildlife creatures including Puffins and the second largest colony of Gannets in the world. There will also be Seals, Bottlenose Dolphins and the occasional Humpback Whale to be seen.

The Eco Tour departs at 2.30 pm daily. It will last approx. 2 hours and is suitable to all ages. It is a perfect trip for families with children under the age of 12 and an accessible option for persons with a disability.
