Our boat has Under-Water Vewing Panels so you can discover a world beneath the surface that looks like a different planet with it's forests of sea weeds and kelp.

Grey Mullet

Find out what fish species live in Letterfrack Bay including Grey Mullet, Thorn Back Ray, Dog Fish and Large Bull Huss.

Terns

Learn about the sea birds that make Letterfrack Bay their home and nesting grounds. Like the Sandwich and Common Tern that fly 7,000 miles from South Africa every Spring/Summer to nest on Lamb's Island which is a nature reserve. The bay is also home to Grey Herons, Oyster Catchers, Guillemots, Cormorants, Curlews, Great Black Gulls, Great Northern Divers, Mallard Ducks and Black-headed Gulls.
Otter Spot the shy otters' hide outs and if you're lucky you might even catch a glimpse of these playful marine mammals. Other sea mammals that are sometimes seen on the Ballinakill Harbour tour are dolphins and porpoises.
Mountains

Learn about the famous Connemara mountains. Find out their names, heights and where Connemara marble has been quarried for years from these mountains.

Sunset

Enquire about our Sunset Cruise which offers a chance to see the mountains in a different light. Watching the sunset on a fine summer's evening from Letterfrack Bay as it turns the sea crimson and violet behind Letter Hill is as beautiful a sight as you will find anywhere in the world!
