We booked our tour months before coming to that place, and nothing to say on it, good tour, with a good captain whom explain lots of things about what's around the boat, so no need to think, just book it and enjoy it!

These lads are professional to their fingertips yet have a genuine human touch born through a love of what they do !. No better way to enter the water desert of the Irish Hermit tradition. An soul uplifting enchanting experience !.
