Claddagh Charters is a commercial charter company, owned and run by Martin Oliver, a fully-qualified skipper with over 35 years experience, both in angling and commercial fishing. His family have a long maritime tradition with both his grandfather and granduncle having owned and sailed the famous Claddagh hooker, the 'True Light’.
Claddagh Charters specialises in pleasure trips and commercial ventures which include sightseeing, angling, and eco tours off the coast of Galway. Operating from the Claddagh Quaside, both boats The Anserina and The Island Light can also cater for hen and Stag parties and can be tailored to suit both individuals and groups.
Cruising east from the Claddagh we travel past Heir and Rabbit islands via the now famous Mutton Island landmark onto the shores of Salthill you will have the opportunity to see some truly breathtaking views of Galway Bay, the home of the famous Claddagh Hooker. The bay is full of life and who knows, if you're lucky you might just spot a couple of playful dolphins along the way.
Media groups, scientific bodies and local interest groups who wish to explore and research the marine life of the bay can also be catered for.
