Our Tours

Harbour Queen Ferry Tours

We have three ferries, Harbour Queen was built in 1970 in the Isle of Whyte and was the first purpose built passenger ferry in the area – up to that point all trips were via small open boats. Harbour Queen II was built in 1995 in Kildare and we renamed our third ferry to Harbour Queen III to complete the fleet.

Our trips take approximately 15 minutes to reach Garnish Island, on route we regularly see Seals – we also have a pair of Sea Eagles nesting on Garinish Island and occasionally see them out of the nest.

Private Tours

We also offer bespoke trips including hiring a private boat for a longer cruise, wildlife tours of the harbour and occasionally fishing trips.
