#CorkHarbour - Seating 72 is a new boat that is commencing on Thursday for the summer season connecting Cork city and Cobh.
Ocean Escapes, a Cork-based company, writes the Evening Echo, is investing €1/2 million in the new service and will operate daily guided tours of the harbour from Cobh to Cork City and Cork to Cobh, with a return by rail option, until September.
Locals and visitors alike will enjoy the experience, which will include the sights, sounds and stories of the harbour, told in a fun and theatrical way by engaging guides.
Highlights along the ancient port waterways will include breath-taking views and famous landmarks such as Crosshaven, Roches Point Lighthouse, Blackrock Castle, Spike Island Prison, Camden Fort Meagher, Haulbowline Naval Base (Ireland’s only Naval Base), Blackrock Castle, Martello Towers, Lord Inchiquin and the Royal Cork Yacht Club, the World’s first Yacht Club, and Cobh, the last port of call for the Titanic, and more.
Passengers will also learn about Cork’s fascinating maritime history and hear unique stories about each of the towns, villages and islands along the harbour.
