Fastnet Rock Lighthouse Tour
Join your tour from either Schull or Baltimore with a 45-minute crossing on the Cape Clear Island Ferry through the beautiful waters of Roaring Water Bay and arriving in the wonderful North Harbour on Cape Clear Island.
A shuttle bus service is provided from North Harbour to Cape Clear Heritage Centre for the Fastnet multimedia exhibition and return downhill on foot taking in the spectacular views. Viewing Fastnet memorials and Fastnet Rock in the distance en-route.
Back on board the ferry for the trip around the Rock itself. Where we will circumnavigate the Rock for the best views from all angles and that once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity. This part of the tour takes approximately 1.5 hours.
Some free time to spend on Cape Clear Island before heading back through the Bay of Island’s while keeping a good lookout for whales and dolphins in this area. There is lots to see and do on the Island, whether it is just to relax with a cuppa while enjoying the friendly Irish banter or heading for the hills on one of the recognised walking trails which don’t disappoint.
