The North Coast and Rathlin island surrounding seas are an internationally important wildlife reserve. During the spring breeding season over 100,000 pairs of puffins, guillemots, razorbills, eider ducks, kittiwakes, fulmars, shags, cormorants, Arctic and common terns, plus more make the cliffs their temporary home. Gannets are regular visitors to feed in the rich seas along the North Coast.

Throughout the year hundreds of grey and common seals can be seen basking on the rocks.

Cetacean sightings are frequent too with good sightings of harbour porpoise, bottlenose dolphins, common dolphin, Risso dolphin, Minke whale and basking sharks in late summer.

Trips depart from Ballycastle Harbour daily during the summer months and can booked online or by telephone. Follow us on Facebook for daily updates.
