Harbour Porpoise are resident all year round and can be seen daily, while the Common Dolphin tend to move inshore early summer and are a popular sighting with our visitors, especially when they are in a playful mood and bow ride alongside the boat. Minke Whales are also frequent visitors to our lovely Bantry Bay. We often see them in pairs or small feeding groups.
