New Boat Tour Launches In Cork Harbour

A new 72-seater tour boat has launched in Cork Harbour following a €500,000 investment from Ocean Escapes, which will operate harbour tours between Cork City and Cobh, with a return by rail option, every day between now and September 2.

According to The Irish Independent, the 1.5 hour tour will offer guided commentaries on the sights, sounds and stories of the harbour, with Blackrock Castle, Martello Towers and Haulbowline naval base all being visible during the trip.

Head of Visit Cork Seamus Heaney welcomed the tour's launch, commenting, "There is a gap in the market for a tour that connects Cork City and Cobh and provides access to our harbour and rich maritime history in an engaging and interactive way."
