Lehid Harbour Tour
The Lehid Harbour in the pristine Kenmare bay is the ideal location to discover the interface where Ocean and Land meet. The intertidal zone is covered by seawater during high tide and exposed during low tide.This is an extreme environment with salinity and temperature changing every 12 hours. Extremophile organisms living in this habitat had to adapt to be able to survive. Every species specialised certain functions to create or fill an existing niche.
Join me on this tour to discover the vast biodiversity along the Irish coast. Watch birds feed in the tidal mud flats, learn about the biology, ecology and the chemo- physical processes, which shape the Atlantic coasts’ environment. Explore rockpools and their fascinating microcosms.
By the end of the day you will be able to identify different bird, seaweed, worm, mussel, crustacean and snail species.
I can also give you advice on wild harvesting edible algae and how to integrate this super food into your daily diet.
The tour takes between 1 1/2 hours
Adults- 20 Euro pp
Children- 15 Euro pp
