What you will visit:

Cork Harbour RIB Sea Safari
Experience the highlights of the world's second largest natural harbor during this exciting RIB adventure. After stepping into the safe and comfortable rigid inflatable boat, your skipper/guides will whisk you away at high speed across the glistening water in the path of the famous Titanic. Along the way you'll learn the harbor's history and of the Irish emigration from the town formerly known as Queenstown.

What you will see along the way:
The magnificent Cork Harbour is home to colorful houses, shops and landmarks such as the 200-year-old Roches Point Lighthouse; the 230-year-old Camden Fort; Carlisle Fort, built in 1861; and the Royal Cork Yacht Club, founded in 1720, it's the world's oldest sailing club.

Photo Opportunity:
You'll have picture-perfect views of the harbor and the sparkling sea from the RIB. If you're lucky, birds such as puffins, and curious seals and dolphins will show up near the RIB to greet you. Just when you thought your camera couldn't hold enough photos, the captain will make a number of photo stops on your return journey – perfect additions to your family photo album.

Snack:
Enjoy an Irish coffee making demonstration when you stop at a local watering hole at the harbor. Watch as this classic coffee cocktail of sweetened coffee and Jameson whiskey topped with fresh whipped cream is served up. Then, sip and savor this warm and tasty concoction before returning to your ship.
