Winter Dark Skies Cruise 1.5hrs

Suitable for adults only!

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 world’s only 3 Gold Tier Dark Sky reserves. Don’t forget to dress for the winter temperatures, but we promise to make your nighttime adventure cosy with a blanket so you won’t even feel the cold as you gaze up to the milky way.

A truly unique experience where the ocean meets the sky at the edge of the world in the dark of the night.

Please Note – This tour operates from November to March only as weather is essential for viewing a clear sky; with this in mind, scheduled dates may be subject to change.

Departs from Knightstown, Valentia Island & Renard Point.
