Dolphin Discovery...

Bottlenosed Dolphin

Take a Trip to meet the Shannon Dolphins

The Shannon Estuary is home to Ireland's only resident group of bottlenose dolphins. Over 100 individual dolphins have been observed using the estuary at different times. Dolphins are curious, playful, unpredictable animals, whose charming antics are bound to amaze and delight you. Experience the excitement of seeing them leap clear out of the water or swim alongside the boat. Calves, born each year between May and August, offer a delightful bonus when encountered with a group.

Boat trips depart Kilrush Creek Marina from April to October to observe these exuberant creatures in their natural habitat. Each trip lasts 1 to 2 hours with 3-4 sailings operating daily in peak season. Due to demand prior booking is advisable.

Why not hop on board the 'Dolphin Discovery' today for an unforgettable encounter with these enchanting marine mammals?
