Why not take a take an exhilarating trip of a lifetime and cruise around Cahersiveen on a RIB (rigid inflatable boat) tour?
Travel along the wide Fertha Estuary and the Carhan River, at the foot of the Benetee Mountain, and out into the stunning and sheltered Valentia Harbour. Due to the fact that the Harbour is sheltered from the Atlantic we find seasickness is not a problem and this trip should suit everyone.
This harbour was once the pivotal point of a busy fishing and farming town in the 1800s. Valentia Harbour is the connecting point of a number of islands, namely Church Island, Beginis and Valentia Island. Beginis Island is a wonderful, deserted island located in the Harbour where we can land and you can go explore. Valentia Island was the location of the first ever telephone communication between the US and Europe. We can stop on Valentia Island and you can enjoy a coffee while soaking up the stunning scenery.
Or maybe take a longer trip and head out into Derrynane Bay. Explore the Bay and take in the amazing sights of the magnificent world heritage Skellig Rocks and Scariff and Deenish Islands.
Take the chance to see seabirds such as puffins and gannets and marine life with the possibility of seeing dolphins and whales. There are trips available for half day or full day tours and you can go as individuals or groups. Waterproofs and life jackets are provided. All you need is warm clothing and your camera to take snaps of the amazing scenery.
