Mourne Sea Tours & Mourne powerboat school

Mourne Sea Tours is now entering its 4th season in the picturesque seaside town of Newcastle Co Down. Over the last 3 years we have the pleasure to accommodate nearly 2000 passengers, all enjoying the spectacular scenery we have in this fabulous coastal location. Mourne Sea Tours are the only licensed sea tour operators within the area.

Newcastle is renowned for the amazing scenery of The Mourne Mountains sweeping down to the sea, a song made famous by the one and only Percy French. Along with the unrivalled scenery, Newcastle is a town packed with holiday makers, endless amounts of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, artisan shops & of course plenty of ice cream parlours to choose from.

This season we are offering a different service post COVID, which will allow you to book a trip as a single seat, or indeed a private group of up to 6. We are launching our new Powerboat experience / Sea safari which will take you on a memorable trip around the stunning coastline. Aboard our 7.2m Ballistic ocean RHIB (rigid hull inflatable boat) MOURNE LASS we will take you on a fun, energy packed coastal tour, getting up close and personal with all the wildlife and marine life Newcastle has to offer.

MOURNE LASS is fully coded by the MCA and offers all safety equipment and features that one would expect.

We have also opened an RYA powerboat school in Ardglass marina, offering courses for those complete novices and assessments for those more experienced. We will be offering RYA Level 1 & Level 2 powerboat courses, on successful completion you will receive your certificate of competence (check out details on our site)
