What our visitors say
The diving, wildlife and the countryside are all top quality

Baltimore Diving is a family-run business in Co Cork, Ireland. I have been diving for 30 years and found the owner/skipper to be one of the very best. John Kearney leads the Co Cork Underwater Search and Rescue team and also is cox on the local lifeboat, so be assured you are diving with someone who knows what he is doing. John goes out of his way to make sure you have a great holiday. The diving, wildlife and the countryside are all top quality. Chorley BSAC highly recommends John and Baltimore Diving to our fellow divers.

The most memorable experience

We sailed with John and had one of the most memorable experiences. John shared his local knowledge and expertise with us and showed how to operate a sailboat safely. We learnt about wind, weather and tides. The best part was seeing the wildlife in silence, we could hear the whales and dolphins breathing and the noise the wild birds made. It was truly a magical experience that we will never forget.

Fantastic Diving Experience

We have had many repeat visits to Baltimore Diving Centre. John goes above and beyond in making sure that our dives are safe and enjoyable. His local knowledge, expertise, and well-maintained boats and equipment all contribute to a fantastic diving experience. Highly recommended.

The Best diving in southwest Ireland

I have worked with John Kearney and the Baltimore Diving setup in both a professional and personal manner over many years and I have to say that John is one of the most knowledgeable and easygoing dive providers I have ever encountered. A fantastic setup with some of the best diving in southwest Ireland on his doorstep assuring a great diving experience whatever the weather allows. I cannot recommend him highly enough and we will certainly be using Baltimore Diving again in the future.
