Spike Island are proud to present Cork Harbour Boat Tours!  Beautiful Cork Harbour is the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and it has a long history that just begs to be told, including fantasic Forts, Titanic's last stop, Lusitania and other shipwrecks and Ireland's largest emigration point.  This is a journey into Cork harbours present and past which is a fully guided 2.5 hour experience.   See some unbeleivable views of Cobh from the water and outer Cork harbour, with her impressive forts and harbour towns.

Meeting on Kennedy pier at 6.45pm in the pictureque town of Cobh, our guides give you an overview of this stunning harbour town, with its towering St Coman's Cathederal and emigration piers.  You'll learn the history of Ireland's largest emigration point before boarding the ferry to set off in the harbour.    We head East hugging the coast with occasional stops so our guides can point out the fortifications and features that make Cork harbour so unique and well defended that it is being considered for Unesco recognition.  We then head south towards the mouth of the harbour, passing Spike Island whose features are explained from this unique water based vantage point.  

Our journey takes you as far as the mouth of the harbour which has seen 2.5 million Irish emigrate from our shores.  Our boat comes to a stop so our guides can show you the final stop of the Titanic, as she picked up her final passengers before setting off on her final journey.  You'll hear about the tragic Lusitania who met her end off Cork's coast and other shipwrecks, including the gunrunning ship the Aud and her audacious plan to support the 1916 Irish rising.  

Only when you've heard the full harbour history do we set sail for home, with the entire experience lasting approx 2.5 hours from start to finish.   Our boat has both an indoor covered and outdoor section, so even if the summer weather lets us down you can enjoy the journey.   Join us for an adventure into Ireland and Cork's past!
