When it comes to unique wildlife encounters there are few things as breath-taking and humbling as coming face to face with the world’s largest creatures. Whale watching is one of those activities that comes close to the top of every “100 things to do before you die” bucket list ever compiled — and it’s much more accessible than you might think.
When most people think of whale watching they immediately think of distant shores… places like Iceland, Baja California, New Zealand or Canada… places that can be difficult and expensive to get to. But the truth is you don’t have to travel far to access truly world class whale watching. You’ll find some of the best whale watching opportunities in Europe aboard the Holly Jo with Cork Whale Watch.
West Cork, on the south coast of the Republic of Ireland attracts minke whales, fin whales, and humpback whales to feed in its rich waters every year. A short drive or a cheap flight will get you to County Cork, and our purpose built whale watching vessel, the Holly Jo provides the ideal platform for that once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Cork Whale Watch offers four hour whale watching trips throughout the year when conditions are suitable. Please note: Whale Watching is weather dependent and we can’t run trips every day. Please call the phone number or get in touch using the enquiry form on our web site for details of our upcoming trips.
