Project Description

Inishtrahull Sea Safari

Departing from Coleraine Harbour we cruise down the River Bann taking in the sights.  Seals are often seen lounging on the rocks here.

We come into the sea through the Bar Mouth and continue past the spectacular Mussenden Temple.

After passing the headland of Innishowen, Malin Head, which is Ireland’s most northerly point, we land at the uninhabited island of Inishtrahull, a designated protected area due to its wildlife.

Made of 1.7 billion year old Paleoproterozoic rock, it is the oldest known rock on the Irish islands. It is an interesting geological, biological, and historical site, not to mention stunning.

Inishtrahull is home to many unusual birds, grey seals, and basking sharks in the summer months. You may bring a picnic or one can be provided.

  • Tour min time: 4 1/2 hours
  • Great for: Sight-seeing, family day out, adventurers, photographers, historians, film producers, wildlife enthusiasts
