Our Boats

Oceanaddicts operate two boats, an 8.8m Excalibur Rib with a 260HP inboard diesel engine. She is called “OISRE” which is Irish for “Oyster” and can carry up to 10 divers. We also run ‘Domino’ which is a Lochin 333 hard boat which is licensed for 12 divers. Both Domino and Oisre provide a very comfortable journey to and from dive sites, with plenty of space for equipment and cameras. We also have a 6M rib called “Up To Something”. this is mainly used for Powerboat training but can also carry 6 divers if we get large groups.  Though smaller that our other two boats she is a very comfortable and stable boat.

Where we Dive

Our Boats operate from Kinsale. From here we are within 20 to 30 minutes of all the best dive sites in the area.  Explore the ship wrecks of Cork Harbour including the historical wrecks of the Aud and the WW1 German Submarine, UC-42, the very interesting Santo and armed trawlers like the Clifton. If you prefer scenic diving we can offer you a great range of sites from the Ling rocks, one of the most beautiful, under dived, dive sites in Ireland, to the sites around the Old Head of Kinsale, including Bream Rock & Black Head  and the Sovereign Islands to mention just a few. We have an abundance of Marine Life from the very tiny nudibranchs to big fish.

Club Holidays

If you or your club are coming to Cork why not stop off and have a couple of dives with us or if you are on a longer break then stay in Kinsale, “the Gourmet Capital of Ireland” and dive from our Day Boats. Experience the best the sea has to offer in West Cork.
