What you'll do

On the south side of Dublin Bay a stunning coastal area of spectacular views, and wonderful wildlife awaits your visit.. When you step aboard the lovely motor vessel 'True Blue', or the fabulous sailing ketch 'Kairos', you will be embarking upon an unforgettable trip along the stunning coastline of Dublin Bay. Fill your lungs with invigorating sea air. Feast your eyes on the spectacular scenery. and delight your senses with joy and happiness. The 'Kingdom of Dalkey Sea Tour' starts in Dun Laoghaire's historical harbour (1817). Then a voyage via Scotsman’s Bay and Sandycove, leaving Bulloch Harbour, the famous Forty Foot, the James Joyce Tower and Colimore Harbour, to starboard. After cruising through Dalkey Sound we enter magnificent Killiney Bay, which has long been compared to the beautiful Bay of Naples. After a jaunt around the bay, we can head back to Dalkey Island and the Muglins. And if the weather is good enough we can drop an anchor in the lee of Dalkey Island or Sorento Point. And, relax and have a picnic while the seals play around us, the seabirds soar, and perhaps a dolphin passing by. This is not a formal tour as such, more a sharing of a pleasant few hours on the water while pointing out interesting things to see. This experience would not suit elderly persons, or anybody who has restricted physical movement. The tour takes approx 2.5/3 hour
