Ecotours & Fishing Trips

ECO TOURS

Whale, dolphin and seal watching trips, up to 12 people are available upon request on board the M.V. Norvic.

Did you know that the two mammal species protected & found in the area of Roaringwater Bay are otters and grey seals?

Otters can be found in all types of wetland such as rivers, streams, lakes and coastal areas.
They use hollow trees or dense vegetation as their hideaway during the day but they can also be found in holes under tree roots.
There are two species of seals known to inhabit Ireland, the Grey Seal and the Common/ Harbour Seal.

As far as dolphins are concerned:
The Bottlenose Dolphins like to bow-ride and breach or jump of the water.
They are often seen in smaller groups of 5 to 15 where as the short beaked Common Dolphins are usually seen in large groups of 30 +.
The smaller species are the Harbour Porpoises who create little surface disturbance, their head & tail are rarely visible and they are known to be shy "neighbours".
