Come with us and meet Dingle's most famous resident...
History of "Fungie": In 1984, Paddy Ferriter, the Dingle Harbour lighthouse keeper, first began watching a lone wild dolphin escort the town's fishing boats to and from port. By August of that year, local Ministry of Marine manager Kevin Flannery was able to officially record the dolphin as a "permanent" resident of the entrance channel and self-appointed "pilot" of the fleet. "Fungie's" Playground: He normally plays in a small area from the middle of the harbour out to the Lighthouse, however when salmon are running he may hunt them further out into Dingle Bay. He regularly escorts boats entering and leaving the harbour and loves to play with small boats/ribs and sailing dinghies.
Tours depart from Dingle Yacht Marina daily weather permitting and last approx. one hour.
Prices: Adults €15, Under 12 €8. Guaranteed sighting or full refund!
