Baltimore yacht charters, County Cork, offer a day sailing aboard the 50ft luxury ‘Inishbeg’ through the islands of West Cork and around the world famous Fastnet Rock. Day and half day cruises for up to 12 guests, lunch, tea/coffee snacks offered and operating all year round. If you have sailed before, you can sail the boat with your hosts doing the navigating or if it is your first time, you will be shown how to steer the boat and work the winches. Usually after a day sailing you will be able to helm, trim the sails, tack and gybe. The water among the islands is very sheltered so no seasickness is guaranteed.

Example cruises include: Ilen river cruise, corporate day cruise for up to 24 people, roaring water bay cruise, Long island cruise, Cape Clear cruise and wildlife tour exploring the marine life of West Cork.

If you have sailing experience, you can bareboat charter the Bavaria 50 cruiser, the 2009 built, 43 ft Beneteau Oceanis 43, the 2008, 42 ft Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 42i, or the 2007 built, 18 ft Drascombe Lugger. All are modern boats with the highest specification in Ireland, immaculately maintained and presented. Baltimore yacht charters are contactable 24/7 while the boats are on charter.

Baltimore yacht charters also offer sailing lessons. The lessons can be tailor-made and designed for your needs up to Yachtmaster level.
