Join us on Merlin for a day’s sailing around Bantry Bay
Bantry Bay is the world’s third deepest natural bay, with one of the longest inlets in south west Ireland, bordered on the north by Beara peninsula, which separates Bantry Bay from Kenmare Bay.
The southern boundary is Sheep’s Head Peninsula, separating Bantry Bay from Dunmanus Bay. The main islands in the bay are Bere Island and Whiddy Island.
Bere Island is located near the entrance to the bay on the north side, close to the main fishing port of Castletown Bearhaven. The town of Rerrin is the largest settlement on Bere Island where Lawrence Cove marina is situated.
You will enjoy a whole day aboard Merlin after which we make the return journey to Ahakista.
With luck, you’ll see local dolphins, minkie whales, sunfish and leatherback sea turtles along the way, so have your cameras ready!
