Blasket Islands Dún Chaoin Ferry Co. Ltd. is no longer running a ferry service from Dún Chaoin to Great Blasket Island for the 2017 season. Please visit our sister site www.marinetours.ie for details of our boat trips from Ventry Harbour (Ceann Trá) around the Blasket Islands. We land passengers on the Great Blasket Island as part of our all-day combination Eco Marine Tour. Ventry Harbour (Ceann Trá) is 4 miles west of Dingle town (6 mins. by car), on the Slea Head drive, road R559. We may resume sailing from Dún Chaoin for 2018 Season.
The Eco Marine Adventure Tour is a 3 hour guided boat tour around the Blasket Islands Archipelago.
The Eco Tour takes you to previously unexplored landscapes and seascapes, visiting places such as Cathedral Rocks and seeing a host of wildlife such as grey seals, dolphins, basking sharks, whales, puffins, terns, gannets, shags, guillemots, gulls, choughs etc.
From May 2011 our Eco Marine Tours will depart from Ventry pier ( Ceann Trá). For information on departure times, rates etc please visit our sister site www.marinetours.ie
You can also combine a visit to the island with the Eco Tour. Leave Ventry pier in the morning and spend a couple of hours exploring the island before we pick you up from there for the eco tour.
