« BackThe Irish Whale and Dolphin Group marks 25th anniversary with national cruise from Fenit

IWDG logoThe 25th anniversary celebrations of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group are being marked by a tour of the Irish Coast from Fenit in Charlie Haughey’s former yacht the ‘Celtic Mist’.

The Group which was founded in 1990, is dedicated to the conservation and better understanding of whales, dolphins and porpoises in Irish waters.

The cruise will start from Fenit, and travel clockwise around Ireland taking in as many festivals and maritime events as possible and visiting schools and coastal communities along the way, and is due to finish back in Fenit at the end of July.

On the yacht will be marine biologists and IWDG members to talk knowledgeably about whales and dolphins and the IWDG will welcome members of the public onboard.

CEO of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group is Simon Berrow:
