To see the magnificent Cliffs of Moher from sea level is an unforgettable experience. A truly memorable trip whilst you travel along the Wild Atlantic Way. You cannot say you have truly experienced the Wild Atlantic Way until you have been on the actual Atlantic Ocean, departing Doolin on one of our many 1 hour cruises underneath the Cliffs of Moher. Not only do you get to see Ireland’s most iconic natural attraction, you also will get a unique perspective of the amazing seabird colonies and a chance to be on board the boat used for filming part of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince at the actual location used in the movie.
There is so much for the senses to digest: the sheer size of these gigantic rock formations, the salty spray of the waves, the unique views of the iconic Cliffs of Moher, and not to forget the vast array of wildlife and the opportunity to see the famous Atlantic Puffins!
This stunning cruise is an unmissable part of your Wild Atlantic Way itinerary. Our boats position you with the best views of the Cliffs of Moher – you cannot but marvel at their scale when you are literally craning to admire them from sea level.
Leaving from Doolin’s new pier, the boat travels south for about 20 minutes to reach the area where the cliffs rise to approx. 800ft or over 200m, close to the large sea stack, An Bhreannan Mor.
Here, the boat will cruise for another 20 minutes to allow passengers to take in the amazing sights of the thousands of seabirds nesting on the rock shelves, see the tiny ant-like people who are peering down at them from the top of the cliffs at the visitors centre, and marvel at the beautiful rock formations, which are the result of the relentless pounding of the Atlantic waves. Audio commentary provides interesting facts about the geology, legends and wildlife found at the cliffs.
Another 20 minutes later, the boat returns to Doolin pier, leaving its passengers back on land laden down with amazing memories of an unforgettable experience.
