The coastline of the Dingle Peninsula is teeming with marine wildlife; which includes fish, mammals,birds, plants and organisms. We have marine wildlife that live here all year wound, such as seals, gannets, our famous dolphin, Fungi, and we have annual visitors who come from as far afield as Brazil, Uruguay and Canada, to breed and feed in our temporate summer waters.The waters off the Blasket Islands are rich feeding grounds for migrating whales and dolphins.
The Dingle Peninsula has become a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, not just because of the diverse range of wildlife we have, but for the ease of access. Wetlands and reedbeds, harbours and estuaries, sand dunes and coastal cliffs, each have their own special ecosystems and habitants.
Marine and Eco Wildlife boat tours, which sail from different parts of the peninsula are a great way to meet some of the creatures that live in the salt water of the ocean or along our coastline.
