Explore the far corners of bustling Cork Harbour during an exhilarating cruise in a rigid inflatable boat. As you speed through the waters on the lightweight, high-performance RIB, your skipper will provide fascinating facts about the harbour's heritage including its history as the final port of call of the ill-fated Titanic in 1912. From this unique perspective you'll speed past landmarks such as the 200-year-old Roches Point Lighthouse, the 230-year-old Camden Fort and Carlisle Fort, built in 1861. Soon, you'll zip past the Royal Cork Yacht Club; founded in 1720, it's the world's oldest sailing club. If you're lucky you may spot a harbor seal, dolphin, puffin or other wildlife tucked among the scenic coastal areas. Next, it's time for a stop at a local watering hole for an Irish coffee making demonstration. Following your 'coffee break' you'll reboard the RIB for the return journey to your ship in Cobh.
