The rope bridge is cared for by the National Trust and welcomes thousands of visitors each year, enjoying the beauty of the causeway coastline. The bridge itself spans twenty metres from the headland to Carrick Island, and has taken many forms over the last 350 years since the island was originally used by salmon fishermen. 

As recently as the 1970s, the bridge was only a handrail with large gaps between each wooden slat. Today's modern version offers breath-taking views of Rathlin Island and even Scotland on a clear day, offering an experience not to be missed. Complementing this, from the dive vessel you will enjoy a rare view of the bridge from below. 

Your voyage takes you along the Causeway Coast, offering views of its outstanding natural beauty in a unique way and from a whole new perspective. You could well spot some of Ireland’s most beautiful wildlife too. Basking sharks, harbour seals, dolphins, grey seals and porpoises can often be seen from the water. When you look to the skies, you might see fulmars, gannets, guillemots, kittiwakes and puffins. This giant experience also showcases the unique Causeway Coast’s geology and magnificent castles. Be sure to bring along a camera to capture some of these unforgettable moments! 

This tour caters to divers of all abilities, with commercially qualified skippers on hand all the way. You’ll receive a full safety briefing before each trip leaves the harbour, meaning that upon setting sail you can relax and enjoy the scenery!
