West Cork Charters is based on the Wild Atlantic Way and offers boat angling and wildlife tours from the village of Courtmacsherry in West Cork.

West Cork Charters offers a wide variety of fishing within a close range of Courtmacsherry, including mackerel, pollock, cod, ling, wrasse, whiting, pouting, coalfish, bull huss and conger with many more species often added to the catch. It is not necessary to head too far offshore before fish are encountered.

Offshore trips, within 10 miles of Courtmacsherry, offer shark fishing with a very strong chance of encountering blue sharks and an increasing chance of bringing a porbeagle shark to the boat. Recent years have seen mako sharks and thresher sharks being caught, and giant bluefin tuna have also stayed close to shore for several weeks in the autumn and winter months.

Also on offer are trips out along the stunning coastline and further offshore to look for whales, dolphins, sunfish and huge basking sharks. There is no guarantee at any time of year that these will be seen, but a wide variety of birdlife is always available.
