Our Mission

Whether it be a scheduled boat tour or a private group tour, Kerry Aqua Terra offers adventures to individuals and groups from early March to late November or early December (weather permitting ofcourse). We provide our guests with a unique and exciting experience by interacting with our area’s amazing geographical and cultural delights dating back to the 6th century. Our boat tours bring adventures to life through stories, folklore, and the natural landscape on visits to Caherciveen, Portmagee and Valentia Island located along the Ring of Kerry.

We aim to deliver our tours and experiences with expert local guides who have attention to detail that is second to none.

We offer competitive prices with a strong emphasis on excellent service and experience during our tours.

Kerry Aqua Terra’s primary goal is to be a leading company in sustainable tourism in Ireland and provide excellent customer service and a great variety of excursions to our customers. As part of our social responsibility policy, we support the local community and focus on building good relationships with our colleagues in the sector, our neighbours, our suppliers, and our customers.

Our crew believes in the company’s environmental policy, and together we are working towards sustainable tourism for the stunning island of Valentia, Co. Kerry, on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

‘The Navigator’

Kerry Aqua Terra’s boat, ‘The Navigator,’ was built with safety, comfort, and mobility for all guests onboard in early 2019. The boat was specially designed and built to full international safety and performance criteria to ensure that we, Kerry Aqua Terra, as a tour provider, can cater to any guest with or without mobility issues.

The boat is easily accessible for wheelchairs or mobility restricted users, with a front ramp fitted explicitly at the front of the boat and a side door fitted on both sides. Also included are all-around safety railings to ensure both young and old can sit back and enjoy the speed and power while enjoying the beautiful sights of Valentia Harbour.

‘The Navigator’ is certified to hold 12 passengers plus 2 crew members. She is fitted with seats and additional safety equipment on board.

‘The Navigator’ is licenced by the Irish Maritime Administration and fully insured for all of the adventures so that comfort and safety are paramount in everything we offer our guests.
