Wildlife Sightings - The area of West Cork is renowned for excellent wildlife sightings including humpbacks, fins and minke whales plus of course dolphins, seals, aquatic birdlife, basking sharks (in spring and early summer), mola mola and a stunning sea and landscape - sea arches, caves, islands, rocky shorelines all within easy reach from Baltimore Harbour
We regularly extend the tours by 15 to 30 minutes to give passengers the time to take in the beauty of the ocean and take images on mobile phones, cameras or video records.
Sunset tours - Vibrant red skies - subject to weather conditions of course, and regulalor sightings of whales and dolphins (as well as seals) along this beautiful offshore cruise of Ireland's most southwesterly coastal waters. Catch the amazing light and colours particularly on sunny evenings on board the Wave Chieftain around this elegant offshore lighthouse. On this 3 to 3.5 hour tour the boat typically cruises on the south side of Sherkin Island, past the Gasnanane Sound and Cape Clear before venturing across the Fastnet Sound to this beautiful lighthouse. After circumnavigating the lighthouse we return to Baltimore harbour via Roaringwater Bay to see some of Carbery 100 Isles or the south side of the islands if there are likely sightings of whales and dolphins.
