Transshipping on Arrival to Great Blasket Island. Please note that all passengers must transship from the Peig Sayers into a smaller dinghy. We feel it is important to highlight this process as not all passengers feel comfortable or are physically able to transship to the island, however, we ensure this is a smooth operation and safety is our number one priority. Below are step by step pictures:
