About West Cork Coastal Tours

Based in the beautiful village of Baltimore, West Cork and during the summer months we run coastal tours and Whale & Dolphin watching tours from the local pier.

In this relaxing "Coastal Cruise" you get to see all that Roaringwater Bay has to offer, from stunning scenery and wildlife to Whales & Dolphins when they are in the area. The famous Fastnet Rock lighthouse stands proudly at the entrance to Roaringwater Bay and in favorable weather we take an up close look at this majestic and historic lighthouse known as "Ireland's teardrop".

Our "Cruise" takes us around the Islands just off Baltimore with plenty of interesting wildlife and landmarks. Each Island has its own story to tell and we usually meet Seals basking on the rocks around the Islands. This tour is ideal for all the family both young and old. We are available 365 days a year.
