Cook, Catch & Eat: Lobster Safari

With Lunchtime Meal.

In collaboration with Galway Bay Sea Foods Galway Bay Boat Tours offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a lobster safari, followed by a beautiful meal at our popular Seafood Centre.

Or, if you prefer, you can enjoy just the Lobster Safari Experience without a meal.

Lobster Safari takes approx 1 hr. 30 mins. Meal is enjoyed afterwards, at your leisure.


Enjoy an exhilarating Harbour Tour of Galway Bay, with an additional ‘Catch, Cook & Eat Package’. 

This tour views the historic fishing village where the famous Claddagh ring originated. 

Starting at the end of Long Walk, which is only 5 mins walk from city centre, you will sail gently from the mouth of River Corrib towards Galway Bay, where you will see the rolling hills of Clare and the unique, beguiling limestone landscape of the Burren, one of Ireland’s designated UNESCO sites.

You will also enjoy a unique Lobster Safari with the option of having your catch delivered & cooked at Dockside Deli: Galway Bay Seafoods.

If a member of your party doesn’t like lobster, meal alternatives are available.

Being on the ocean can be a transformative experience!

To celebrate the West’s prestigious 2018 Region of Gastronomy award, we have developed our Cook, Catch & Eat package in honour of Galway’s long history of fishing and ocean culture.

Maritime history.

This boat tour offers you the opportunity to discover the region’s boat-building & maritime history, as well as experience the exhilaration of being able to catch your own lobster and have it cooked by one of Galway’s talented chefs.

Create memories that will last forever!
