“Fabulous trip in one of the best harbours in the world. Saw cobh, the naval base, the marine college, rocky island, spike island, the outer harbour and the spit bank lighthouse. Added bonus of a cruise ship being in port also. 
The team gave great instruction and safety is a priority. 
Even though it is a guided tour you have plenty of freedom to explore and do your own thing. 
Couldn’t recommend it more. Do it!!!!!”
