Galway Bay Boat Tours is a charter boat company and ISA powerboat training centre located in Galway Harbour, a ten minute walk from Eyre Square Galway

Galway Bay Boat Tours is about more than just sailing, providing experience you just cannot get on land. Whether you prefer a short spin across the bay for a spot of lunch or a more adventurous overnight trip to the Aran Islands, all tastes are catered for. Galway and its surrounding regions have a rich maritime heritage that sometimes can only be explored from the sea. Dramatic coastlines and beautiful islands are made accessible to all who wish to experience more of what Galway has to offer. If you are looking for something a bit more permanent we are also registered ISA training centre. Safety is priority on the water and all vessels are Department of Marine approved and all the skippers are ISA/RYA qualified. The difference with Galway Bay Boat Tours is they offer all types of boating from sailing to fishing to power boating and more.

The possibilities include:

•Corporate day cruise: Inspire your employees or reward loyal customers with a view of the sun setting on Galway Bay

•Family cruising: Explore the bay and check out local coves or go further afield and see what Kinvara has to offer. Picnic on the water or have lunch in New Quay. Take a longer trip over to Fanore and watch the dolphin from the bow

•Heritage tour: If you have time on your hands see what Roundstone, Connemara has to offer or see the Martello towers around the bay.
•Fishing: Take in some amazing views of Galway city from the water’s edge while catching mackerel and pollock in the mouth of the river Corrib or out around the lighthouse. Head further out to sea where you can drop anchor and catch some local fish. Imagine cooking and eating your own catch after a day at sea!

•Powerboating: If you’re looking for something a bit more fast-paced take a spin on one of powerboats and break some waves.

•Training: If you wish to take the helm yourself or build on existing skills, training can be provided in a variety of craft.
