We had an absolutely fantastic time! I would highly recommend this and in so pleased we did it. We saw lots of seals, different birds as well as rabbits on Dalkey Island. Dave and the other tour guys were really friendly, very funny and highly knowledgeable about everything on the tour. This was the best thing we did in Dublin!

Absolutely loved it! The seals came right up to the kayaks! Main guide was amazing- very knowledgeable about the wildlife and history of Dalkey and very good about working in rest stops and motivating us when we were tired.

My wife and I went kayaking with the seals and it was one of the funnest things I did while in Ireland. The guide was very friendly and experienced and took great care of us. We went kayaking and all the baby seals were swimming around us for most of the time. It was an experience I'll never forget and would recommend anyone to try it out.

Swimming next to seals was great. Dalkey Island is beautiful. I think training was long but safety first :) Instructors are very friendly and professional. I would recommend this tour especially during the nice weather!
