Skellig Michael Eco Cruises – Our Skellig Boats fleet
Skellig Michael Eco Cruises was launched on the 23/7/2013. This initiative was our brain child as we could clearly see a gap in the Skellig boats market providing tours for people who were unable climb to the rock.
My wife Mary and I decided that if we were ever in the position to provide the service, we would. After 2014 our first season, it has proved a tremendous success and has continued to grow year on year.
Our Skellig boats fleet now consists of five boats.
- The Marber Therese II
- Sea Breeze III
- The Sundance Kid
The Marber Therese II Aqua Star 43 is our biggest Skellig boat again with seats on inside and outside. Having seats inside ensures comfort and shelter from the weather while the seats outside enable all passengers to enjoy a full view of Skellig Michael in comfort.
The Marber Therese II is a new charter boat built to the highest standards for carrying passengers around Skellig Michael. This newly built Cygnis Cyfish 39 has a full Irish P5 licence.
The boat has been named after my father’s trawler “The Marber Therese” which was built and launched in Dingle in 1981. It remained in full operation until 2009.
The Anchorsiveen (soon to be replaced in 2017)
Skellig Michael Eco Cruises acquired the Anchorsiveen Skellig boat in December 2013. This is another Aqua Star 38 fitted with seats on inside as well as 12 outside for all passengers to sit and enjoy the trip to Skellig Michael in comfort.
As the demand for our Skellig Michael Eco Cruises has been steadily increasing we acquired the Loinnir in April 2015.
Skellig Michael cruises skellig boats fleet are maintained in top condition, we fully service and repaint all our skellig boats each year before the Skellig Islands season starts .
Skellig Michael Eco Cruises Expansion
As part of our business expansion our Skellig boats fleet we have recently acquired two aqua stars 38 with twin engines, namely Sundance Kid and Sea Breeze III. These boats are very safe sea worthy boats for cruises to Skellig Michael on the Wild Atlantic Way. Again these skellig boats have shelter and seating for all passengers as well as a toilet on board.
All Skellig Michael Eco Cruises skellig boats are modern and fitted to the highest safety standards to meet the needs of all our passengers.
My father and grandfather have had a fishing trawler operating from Portmagee Pier since the 1950’s. My father fished his trawler “Marber Therese” up until a week before he passed away suddenly in 2009.
