Scenic cruising Skellig Michael

Skellig Michael, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, rises dramatically from the wild Atlantic Ocean off the coast of County Kerry, Ireland. This remote and rugged island offers a unique blend of natural beauty, historical significance, and mystical charm. Skellig Michael, or the Great Skellig, is a towering rocky outcrop that soars 714 feet above sea level. As our ship approaches the island, you'll be awed by the sight of its steep, jagged cliffs rising majestically from the swirling seas. It is a haven for wildlife, home to a large colony of gannets, puffins, and other seabirds; surrounding waters teem with seals, dolphins, and occasionally, whales.
