Because of its maritime tradition, Baltimore is well known as the Water Activities Capital of Ireland.
Activities to be enjoyed by the whole family include sailing, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and diving, shore fishing & Sea Angling with spectacular scenery, unpolluted waters and wrecks galore.
There's sea angling for everything from mackerel to tuna. Baltimore is especillay well known for its shark and common skate fishing, both of which can produce a fish of well over 50kgs in weight.
Hire a self drive boat and be independent for a pleasant cruise around the harbour or a picnic on a beautiful sandy beach or cove nearby.
The varied bird life is well done around the area. Sometimes these can be seen from the shore, notably from Cape Clear, but the best view is from a boat where there is also the chance of seeing whales, dolphins, basking sharks, seals or even a leatherback turtle.
