About Peel

Traditionally a fishing port which used to annually host a huge herring fleet, Peel remains the most active fishing port on the Isle of Man but is also important commercially for the importation of various fuel oils. Situated on the west coast, Peel also has a comprehensive fish and shellfish processing industry and is home to the traditional art of kipper curing with guided tours organised for visitors throughout the curing season (May to September).

Peel is also the Isle of Man base for commercial shark and whale watching trips. The rare basking shark - up to 35 feet long - is found in Manx waters between May and September and trips operate daily from the breakwater.
