Relaxed Yacht Cruising

Relaxed Yacht Cruising

Location: Dublin Bay, Killiney Bay, Howth

Typical Duration: 2-3hrs

Cost: €57 per person (based on full occupancy of each yacht)

 

Whats involved:

This is an incredible opportunity to see Dublin Bay from the water. We meet your group at the entrance to Dun Laoghaire Marina. After a 10 minute safety brief our yacht(s) will depart the marina. You are given the wheel almost immediately and get to take the yacht out into the outer harbour where we hoist up the sails.

We then sail down the coast towards Dalkey Island and Killiney Bay. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen, seals and seabirds are abundant around the Island, and we often see bottlenose dolphins in Killiney Bay.

You can take as active or inactive a role as you like in terms of the sailing onboard the yacht, the focus is really on enjoying yourself and relaxing.

Heres a typical itinerary of one of our trips on either or both of our Jeanneau Sunfast 37s:
