Summer 2014 sees the launch of two new businesses that will bring tourists and local people onto Cork Harbour in very different ways.
Cork Harbour Boat hire specialises in hiring out self drive boats to tourists, families, schools, large & small groups & the general public all in the safety of Cork Harbour. Based at the pontoon of The Quays Bar and Restaurant in Cobh the fleet of four boats caters for birthday party packages, corporate days & more. All tours are led by a fully qualified safety boat guide that escorts your own easy to drive boat. The cost is €49:00 per boat with up to 5 people on-board (at least one person must be 18 or over, ID required) This includes life jackets and fuel.
All tours are safety boat guided and no experience is needed as they are very simple to use! Tours are fun and suitable for all the family.
