Angling & Cruises

There are a number of charter boats operating out of Kilmore Quay marina. They offer a variety of services including: Deep Sea Angling, Trips around the Saltee Islands for all the family, Equipment rental, Survey Charters and Scuba Diving Charters. They are all insured, licenced and fitted out to a high standard with a full range of marine electronic and safety equipment on-board.

In general, angling day-trips head out between 8am and 9am and return in the afternoon at approximately 4pm. Fishing gear can be rented on-board.

Daily trips to the Saltee Islands run daily.  Contact Declan Bates for details. (See below)

Evening cruises around the Islands are also available from all charters and highly recommended. See the playful seals swim about the Saltee Islands, the spectacular Gannet colony on the Great Saltee and hear their incredible din, maybe spot some dolphins and as you head back to Kilmore Quay harbour watch the red sun set over Ballyteige Bay. A great way to spend a summer’s evening.

There is no booking office in the Village. Please contact the boats directly. Contact Details Below.

Please note: All boat & angling trips are subject to weather conditions.
