A Family Boating Business
The Oliver Family History
Sailing and fishing have been a part of the Oliver family for generations. The family originates from Claddagh, an iconic community nestled in the heart of Galway city across from the historic Spanish Arch and touching Galway Bay. The family history’s in boats goes back over 100 years, with ancestors setting off from Galway Bay in the now famous Hooker boats. This sailing tradition is something that the Oliver family is passionate about and endeavour to share their heritage by making the sea fun and accessible for all to enjoy.
The Oliver Family Today
We continue to operate a family run boating business from the Claddagh that offers guided boat tours on Galway Bay for small to medium sized groups. The sailing and fishing traditions of the area have been part of the Oliver family for generations, and we are currently the only company providing this service from the city.
We have a small fleet of passenger motor/powerboats which meet required safety standards and are licenced by Dept of Transport.
Over the last few years we have been working on ideas various based on customers needs and some of the new services launched this year include, 1-hour ‘Harbour Tours’, 2-hour ‘Galway Bay Tours’ and specialized ‘Tailored Tours’ of 2 hours+ for those wanting something a bit more customized.
