Duration: 2 hours
Sit back and relax on the St Brendan tour boat as you take in the stunning landscapes and views surrounding you. You will enjoy listening to the stories of the place and its people as you watch birds soaring overhead and diving into the rich waters of the lough to feed. You will travel up Strangford Lough just as St Patrick did in the 5thcentury and you will see Audley’s Castle at Castleward where Games of Thrones filming took place. On a clear day you will have a beautiful view of the Mourne Mountains with its majestic peak, Slieve Donard. Look out for seals basking in the sun on the rocks. As we navigate around the islands in the lough you will learn about the unique history of individual islands. As we come close to Swan Island in spring you will be able to see the young chicks. Hear the stories of the smugglers and the attempts by officials to bring them to book.
Additional cost for boat hire. Tour operates subject to favourable weather conditions
