Fungie Trip:

 

Fungi DingleIn 1983 Fungie, a wild Bottlenose Dolphin, choose to make Dingle Harbour his home. Fungie is a wild Bottlenose Dolphin, no one is quite sure of his age but he has been here for nearly 25 years and the experts tell us he has a lifespan of between 40 and 50 years.

He is about 13 feet in length and weighs around 250lbs. The media named him in the early years and although there is no meaning in the Irish language for the word 'Fungie', it does suggest he is a Fun-Guy!

 

People from all walks of life, from all over the world, from 2 weeks to 93 years old, have come to Dingle especially to see Fungie. Join us on one of our fully licensed boats for a memorable trip to see him.

 

The boats leave Dingle Pier at regular intervals during the day, every day, all year round (weather permitting) on a 1 hour trip to see Fungie wild and free in his natural habitat.
