Client Testimonial

For the past few years, our partnership with Brendan and Elizabeth at Aqua Terra Boat Tours has been nothing short of exceptional. Their offerings have become an invaluable addition to our packages, catering to both our avid golfers and non-golfing companions. A visit to Valentia Island has become a highlight for our guests, providing them with a truly authentic and immersive experience alongside their round at Waterville. Elizabeth’s deep knowledge of the area, particularly the Transatlantic Cable Station, adds an enriching layer to the excursion. Additionally, the opportunity to explore the island’s diverse wildlife and stunning natural landscapes has left our guests in awe.

Brendan and Elizabeth consistently demonstrate outstanding professionalism and attention to detail. They effortlessly accommodate our clients, even on short notice, and consistently go above and beyond to ensure a seamless experience. It’s a pleasure to collaborate with them, and we look forward to continuing our successful partnership.
