The fastest service to the Skellig Islands.

Travel in comfort and speed to the stunning Skellig Islands.  The boat leaves from Ballinskelligs Pier every day at 11am weather permitting. You will have a chance to climb the 600 steps to the ancient monastic settlement on top of  Skellig Michael (find more information here), and hear the sounds of the Gannets on the worlds largest Gannet sanctuary at Little Skellig. The islands have incredibly rich marine wildlife. Look out for: Seals, Basking Sharks, Dolphins, and more rarely Whales, Puffins, Kittiwakes, Storm Petrels, Fulmars, and of course almost 100,000 Gannets on the Little Skellig. See our wild life page for more information.
