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:
- The Peig Sayers arriving to mooring.
- Skipper Billy lines the Peig with the Dinghy and secures accordingly
- One by one passengers safely step from the Peig into dinghy. We ensure this is a controlled procedure and any extra assistance is offered to people who feel nervous or unsteady.
- All passengers transshipping must wear a life jacket. Our dinghy transships 8 people at a time and is a very quick trip to the island slipway. Good foot-ware and caution is advised for the island.
