Scuba Diving in Fastnet Rock, Cork, Ireland
Baltimore is a picturesque, fishing village that sits on the southwest coast of County Cork. Apart from stunning natural surroundings, Baltimore offers a variety of water-sports and leisure activities to locals and visitors. Fastnet Rock is located close to Cape Clear Island and it is the most southerly point of Ireland.
The one side of the rock drops down to 50 m/164 ft, while the other side has a depth of 30 m/98.4 ft. Fastnet Rock is an exposed location, with strong, tidal flows that accommodates only the experienced divers. But in good weather conditions, the marine world is amazing, with an abundance of fish, colorful anemones and starfish of all sizes. Visibility is good, usually more than 10 m/32.8 ft. Water temperature ranges from 7°C/45°F in winter to a maximum of about 15°C/59°F in summer and early autumn months.
Last but not least, do not miss the opportunity to explore the lighthouse that stands on the top of the rock, as it is Ireland’s highest lighthouse. Note: you can book a boat dive at a dive center that visits the site.
