We had such a lovely day with Pat taking us out to Beginish Island for a short hike. We contacted him at short notice and he totally accommodated us and what a morning we had. Beautiful place, we saw seals, a viking settlement and one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen... and Pat was so informative on the local history too! What a gent! Looking forward to our next trip...

Paul and Pat were very informative about the history of the harbour. Would highly recommend a tour with Kerry Aqua Terra on their purpose built vessel the 'Navigator'. Best of luck in the future

Interactive, informative, and really beautiful tour. Amazing way to see this stunning landscape and learn some history.On a visit to Kerry from New York, we took a Kerry Aqua Terra tour last October. It was brilliant from start to finish. The group was small, so the tour felt really personalized - we learned a lot of information, and had any questions answered expertly. Visiting the islands off the coast was so enjoyable and stunning, and we had no idea they were so steeped in history. The scenery around the coast of Kerry is mesmerizing. We highly recommend this tour if you want a intimate and informative experience, with really knowledgeable and entertaining tour guides. We will definitely do another tour when back in that part of Ireland!
