Seascapes is a Irish radio programme covering maritime matters broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1 presented by Marcus Connaughton. The programme deals with all subjects of maritime interest, from leisure to commercial shipping, as well as fishing and the environment. Seascapes, which has been running since the 1990s, is one of the most popular night-time programmes on RTÉ Radio 1.

Seascapes is made up of various segments put together by producer Marcus Connaughton in Cork, Ireland. These include reports from the RNLI lifeboat service, a correspondent from Ireland's offshore islands, official maritime notices, the inland waterways and a nostalgic look back at marine events from times past. The 1,000th edition of Seascapes was broadcast in mid December 2008 and featured two recorded programmes from the RNLI's new Irish Headquarters in Swords, County Dublin. Seascapes is broadcast online around the world.
