Sea Fishing Cobh Cork Harbour Ireland

Want to catch Fish?, or see dolphins swimming in the wild?, perhaps you need a boat to conduct a survey at sea? or have an event that requires a safety boat,Then you need to put your charter in the hands of a professional skipper with many years experience.


Should your interest in fishing be for Shark, Conger, Ling, Cod, Pollack or Whiting, Ray, Huss or Dogfish or even Skate we can take you to marks where you have the best chance of hooking into your favourite species. Shark fishing is very popular in the summer off the Cork Coastline and we have caught some large specimen sharks from the John Boy over the years.

We will put you on the marks that are catching at the time of your charter, taking weather, wind direction and tides into account. If you are searching for a specific species, we will tell you the chances of catching one and whether we can get you there and back in a day!!! Cork Harbour, being the second largest harbour in the world provides a great alternative to open water fishing if the weather should not be suitable for your party to go out to the open sea outside Roches Point, the entrance to Cork Harbour. This may be due to the weather or perhaps some of your group do not have good sea legs, but wish to target fish from a boat, we can provide plenty of opportunities within the harbour to keep your party amused.

We pick up from Monkstown, Cobh, Crosshaven and East Ferry or others by special arrangement.



Dolphins are a wonderful sea mammal and we are blessed in the Cork area with a large number of pods of dolphins feeding on the plentiful supply of mackeral we enjoy in the summer months and into Autumn. Should Dolphin Watching be your interest then we will take you to the spots with the best chance of finding dolphins swimming and breaking the surface chasing their prey.

With our P5 licenced 300bhp boat, we can provide all the skills and speed you may require for your survey and safety boat needs, give us a call, we undertake a large amount of work in this area and are very experienced in supporting your requirements.

East Cork Fishing is some of the best on the south coast of Ireland, whilst West Cork offers plentiful reefs and wrecks, including the Lusitania, although fishing is not allowed due to it's war grave status, but there are plenty of other ships that have fallen foul of the storms on the Southern Shores.
