Baltimore Sea Safari has two boats available for commercial charter in West Cork which are ideal for survey work and standby operations. The boats are fast, highly maneuverable RIBs with a shallow draft, making them suitable for working close to the shore and in shallow waters, where bigger boats would find it difficult to operate.
Seafari 1 is a 9m RIB with removable seating which can be quickly removed to open up the deck area and allow for the storing and handling of equipment. This makes the boat very adaptable for a wide range of operations.
Our boats offer safe platforms for commercial or survey work, including film and photography. We have carried out commercial work including tide surveys for the Department of the Environment and the Department of the Marine, water quality testing for the Environmental Protection Agency, lines work and inter island crew transfer for the ESB and as safety and crew boat for Rambler 100. We have also worked as a camera boat with SC4 TV and Aonan TV documentary. We have also run corporate outings for many companies over the years.
Our water taxi service is available to contractors working on nearby islands. Some of these islands do not have an early morning ferry service, others are not serviced by a ferry at all – we can provide a service to carry workers to the islands in the morning and return to collect them in the evening. To date this service has benefitted contractors working on Cape Clear Island, Horse Island and Sandy Island. This service has benifitted local vets, electricians and bird watchers to get to the islands off Baltimore at times that suit their requirements.

We operate our boat trips from the Ferry Pier in Baltimore. However, trips can be arranged from other ports in West Cork on request.
