Winter Star Gazing Cruise 1.5hrs

This tour only operates during the Winter and early Spring months.

Valentia Harbour is stunning in the summer, but it is even more magical on a Winter Star Gazing 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 the stars with a clear dark sky. With this in mind, scheduled dates may be subject to change due to weather.

Departs from Knightstown, Valentia Island & Renard Point.

€50 per person / min. 4 persons to operate the tour

Please be advised that this tour requires sensible footwear.
