History of Fungie

In 1983, an extraordinary and curious visitor decided to visit Dingle Harbour. This amazing Dolphin befriended the local fishermen while they were fishing in Dingle harbour and Bay. They named him "Fungie" the Dingle Dolphin.

29 years on, this wild bottlenosed dolphin has remained and has become Dingles most famous resident. Fungie has never been fed by humans in order to induce him to stay or to perform. He thrives on playing around with the Boats that go out on tours to see him, or with any other small craft that comes his way to play.

Fungie is thought to be in the region of 30 years of age now. Dolphins can apparently live up to 60 yrs in the wild. He is approximately 13ft in length and weighs over 250lbs.
