Takes about an hour, takes you out past Charles Fort to the harbour mouth and back in again, you get some great views of kinsale coming back in, we even saw a seal swimming alongside us, highly recommend and not expensive.

Went on the harbour cruise for the first time and what a very interesting trip it was. Very comfortable with a large solid and stable boat that can seat 50 comfortably!
