We are the original multi-passenger boat company on the west coast of Wales. When you make the decision to join a boat which can carry more people at once you help to reduce the number of boats resulting in a less intrusive method of watching dolphins, cutting down on the associated traffic from dolphin watching boats.
We don't chase the dolphins, we let the dolphins approach us and very often they come unbelievably close to the boat even with their young which gives us an unforgettable experience. Their frequent socialising and feeding activities are visible above the water as bottlenose dolphins can breach over four meters into the air, creating spectacular displays. This is not always close to the boat and naturally we cannot promise dolphins on every trip but we do our best to ensure each trip is enjoyable and interesting.
We are associated with the SeaWatch Foundation and by paying for your seat you are making the trip possible for a volunteer researcher who can travel for free on board who will then have the opportunity to monitor the wildlife from the sea rather than from land. The Sea Watch Foundation monitor the bottlenose dolphins on behalf of the welsh government and rely solely on donations for their valuable scientific work. If you have the time, please visit the charity's website and learn more about what they do around the U.K. and the Cardigan Bay monitoring project: https://www.seawatchfoundation.org.uk
During all our trips, the experienced skipper and crew will keep their eyes on the water but you are advised to do so too as there is also the possibility of spotting a much less obvious harbour porpoise. Keep your eyes on the skies throughout the trip, gannets, shearwaters, oystercatchers, cormorants & shags and depending on the time of year auks in their thousands will be seen as well as various gull species and even the rare chough if you are ‘eagle eyed’.
Sunfish are spotted every season but not as regularly of course as the numerous Atlantic grey seals which often pop up to see who is passing through their territory. Join us and enjoy an unrivalled experience from start to finish, hop on board for a day you won’t forget! Thank you for reading - see you on the water.
