List of Galway’s Boating Adventures, Sea Safaris, Trips / Tours and Cruises

Galway is a great tourist destination. That goes with out saying. However, it is also a fantastic spot to just visit, drink a few pints and have the craic. You don’t have to do the whole tourist thing to enjoy Galway. I particularly like getting out of the city and around the county. There are some great adventures to be had if you do. That said, the city has some excellent attractions and if your visiting Galway for a bit, be sure to check out one of the many boat trips that are available. Below, I’ve put together a list of these that will hopefully help you in find the one you want.
