Blasket Island Ferry Trip

Not a Fast Ferry but an Eco – Ferry because: We take time to look for and spot (common) dolphins; (Minke) whales; basking shark (in season); seals and sea birds along the way, and stop for a while if / when we encounter marine wildlife in Dingle Bay and the Blaskets.

We observe all the best environmental practices as regards: “Leave no trace” – This applies to both our customers and ourselves No rubbish discarded, all rubbish is recycled from plastic water bottles to used engine oil and filters

We have a company signed environmental policy Holding tank on board for on shore sewerage disposal. Absolutely no rubbish overboard (or customers go with it!). Our customers can be satisfied that we leave as small a footprint as possible due to low emissions; efficient and well maintained propulsion machinery and low fuel consumption at maximum efficiency cruise speed (10 kts.)

We pay all our team a living wage.

We are a community based, local, community-aware and resourced company and we are socially and environmentally responsible. When you travel with Blasket Islands Eco Ferry you contribute not only to the success of a locally based and resourced local provider, but you also contribute to the success of our local community by staying local; dining / shopping local and enjoying local activities and entertainment around Ventry Harbour.
