Dingle Dolphin Boat Tours provides boat trips to see the famous “Fungie” the Dingle Dolphin in Dingle Harbour, Kerry, Ireland.
Fungie is a wild Bottlenose Dolphin, no one is quite sure of his age but he has been here for nearly 32 years and the experts tell us he has a lifespan of between 40 and 50 years.
He is about 13 feet in length and weighs around 250kgs. The media named him in the early years and although there is no meaning in the Irish language for the word ‘Fungie’, it does suggest he is a Fun-Guy.
