Valentia Harbour 1.5hr Tour
Explore the Wild Atlantic Way up close and in person with an amazing trip onboard a custom-built sea safari wheelchair-accessible boat, ‘The Navigator’.
The Captain and crew will guide you through the history of Valentia Harbour of the Transatlantic Telegraph Cable that was laid from Valentia Harbour to the shores of Newfoundland, Canada, in 1866.
Your guide will then take you back to the 6th & 7th centuries when the Skellig Monks found peace on Church Island, later roamed by the Vikings that found a settlement on the neighbouring Beginish Island. ‘The Navigator’ will cruise past Beginish Island like the Vikings once did, and here you will see the beautiful ruins of an old Viking home hidden on the island’s eastern side.
Cruising onwards, you will travel past some of the seals that are home to Beginish Island before cruising to the Lighthouse to observe this once 15th-century fort to then journey on towards the beautiful subtropical gardens of Glanleam house and beach.
