Scenic Cruise of Cork Harbour
Cork Harbour is the second largest natural harbour in the world, second only to Sydney Australia! Cork Harbour is steeped in maritime history and many historical sites are present to this day. Sites like the military forts on Spike Island, Camden and Carlisle all interconnected by under water tunnels. The latter pair's Brennan torpedo tubes are clearly visible today from the boat. Then on to the town of Cobh ( pronounced Cove) ex Queenstown to this day a regular port of call to the worlds largest and most famous ocean passenger liners. Queenstown was the last port of call of the RMS Titanic! The White Star Line office building is still present as is the old wooden pier where the last passengers boarded the White Star line tenders "Ireland" & "America" to be brought out to the waiting RMS Titanic just off the harbour entrance. Across the harbour the town of Crosshaven is home to the "Royal Cork Yacht Club". R.C.Y.C is the oldest yacht club in the world, established in 1720.
