Baltimore and the off shore islands are a haven for lovers of the ocean. Sailing is central to life hear and it's best to explore the coast by boat or yacht. Charter a boat from Baltimore and try your hand at deep sea fishing or hope to see minke whales, common dolphins, harbour porpoise, humpback & fin whales basking shark, and the ocean sunfish. If you are really blessed, a rare sighting of Leatherback turtles or bluefin tuna would certainly top your trip.
If you have trouble finding your sea legs, then there is plenty to do for land lovers. The area has an abundance of deserted beaches, coastal hikes, antiquities worth an exploration, a spot of golf and of course, many quaint West Cork towns and villages to wander around on a lazy summer's afternoon.
