Valentia Harbour is stunning in the summer but it is even more magical on a winter dark skies cruise.

While onboard ‘The Navigator’, view one of the only 3 Gold Tier Dark Sky reserves in the world.  Don’t forget to dress for the winter temperatures but we promise to make your night time adventure cosy with a blanket so you won’t even feel the cold as you gaze up to the milky way.
