Sailing around the North Coast offers an opportunity to experience the wealth of marine mammal life and dramatic landscapes of these coastal shores. Don’t miss Rathlin Island, quaint fishing villages and towns and Northern Ireland’s un-crowded waters with some breath taking scenery.

Carrickfergus marina offers excellent berthing facilities for visitors and from Glenarm you can easily sail anywhere; the islands of Islay, Mull and Jura are only a day’s sail away. Ballycastle has a superb marina situated on the spectacular North Antrim Coast with stunning scenery and a plethora of activities on offer while Coleraine Marina is ideally situated in sheltered water and convenient for exploring the wider NorthCoast.
