Baltimore Self Catering




West Cork, and Baltimore in particular, offers every conceivable form of diving with unpolluted waters and good visibility to 35 metres at best but with an average of 15 metres.The underwater flora and fauna is luxuriant and colourful - a diver's paradise with spectacular drop-offs and an abundant marine life - sightings of dolphins, migrating basking sharks and many species of other fish to be seen and photographed.

There is good wreck diving too, with the "Kowloon Bridge" supercarrier of 300 metres for instance at a depth of 6 to 36 metres, the "U260" a German U-boat with hatches open at 46 metres and "Nestorian" 120 metres long at 20 metres. Drift diving fanatics would love the "Gascanane Sound" between Cape Clear and Sherkin. We have the Fastnet Rock, Stags Rocks and Mizen Head less than half an hour away with numerous islands in between providing good sheltered sites whatever the weather.
