Location of Saoire Mara Charters
There are an abundance of fish species available only 10 minutes away from Kincasslagh Pier. Some of the species include, Pollack, Coalfish, Mackerel, Cod, Ling, Red, Grey and Tub Gurnards, Ballan Wrasse, Cuckoo Wrasse, Conger Eel, Pouting and Dogfish. We can take you deep-sea fishing for bigger fish among wrecks from the Spanish Armada & 2nd World War. The local islands and rugged coastline offer good shelter allowing fishing trips almost all year round.
Departing Kincasslagh Pier, our coastal cruises travel along the rugged coastline and around the secluded islands of Cruit, Uaigh, Inis Fraoigh and Gabhla. Our cruises are ideal for photography and filming, school and work outings, birthday celebrations and stag or hen parties.
Our East and West Cruises last between 1.5 and 2 hours and include a guided talk ensuring that customers are kept well informed as we pass local attractions. Binoculars are available for a closer look at the marine wildlife and the magnificent scenery. Sightseeing can also be combined with a spot of fishing if desired and we can also retrieve a lobster pot from the sea. Occasionally dolphins and basking sharks visit our shores, which are already home to wildlife such as birds and seal colonies. On early morning cruises the local lobster fishermen can be seen working their lobster pots.
We offer day trips to the Donegal Gaeltacht islands of Owey, Gola, Arranmore & Tory where you can get away from the routine of everyday life and experience a place where time stands still and where an old Irish culture and way of life survives to this day.
These islands offer a unique setting for hill walking, camping, cycling, bird watching, diving, shore angling, climbing or just an opportunity to relax and absorb the timeless culture and tranquillity.
