Our ‘Up Close and Personal’ Early Morning Trip is the best way to get as close to Fungie as he will allow.
Duration: 1.5 – 2 Hours
When: 8am – 10am
Cost: €40 per person
Our Rib carries a maximum of 10 people, so booking is essential.
Optional Wetsuit Hire: Hire a Wetsuit from Brosnan’s Wet Suit Hire (book a day in advance) & get in the water or just come along for the ride on our new addition 8.2 metre Redbay Rib. (Please note wetsuits must be hired in advance and are NOT available to hire on the day of the tour)
Fungie is a wild Bottlenose Dolphin. Nobody is quite sure of his age but he has been here for nearly 32 years and the experts tell us he has a lifespan of between 40 and 50 years.
As always we must respect Fungie and understand that these trips are completely on his terms.
We don’t chase Fungie, but let him come to us. Our Rib Trip is an amazing way to get close to a WILD Dolphin.
People from all walks of life, from all over the world, from 2 weeks to 93 years old, have come to Dingle especially to see Fungie. Many people decide to become one with nature, meet Fungie in his own environment and brave the cold waters of the harbour (maybe not so brave when you’ve got a wetsuit!).
Celebrities, including Pierce Brosnan, Mary Black and Jean Kennedy-Smith, to name but a few, have come to see Fungie.
