Dolphin Jumping


Declared a Whale and Dolphin Sanctuary since the 1990s, sightings of several resident Dolphin Species, Fin Whales and Minke Whales are common off the South Coast, with Humpback Whales also feeding in these waters for over seven months of the year. 

Just 10 Nautical Miles from Baltimore you will find the Fastnet Rock, the most Southerly point of Ireland. The lighthouse rises to around 30 metres, making it the tallest in Ireland. 

Island Hopping

Here in Baltimore we are surrounded by Islands that often have an almost subtropical climate thanks to the passing Gulf Stream, while maintaining the Irish aesthetic of lush greenery and rocky cliffs. The most popular of the Islands are Cape Clear and Sherkin Island, a short spin from our pontoon in Baltimore. Other popular Islands include: Spanish Island, Heir Island, Horse Island, Skeams Islands, Calf Islands, Castle Island and many more.
