About Dolphin Spotting Boat Trips
During our one and two hour trips you will also learn about the lives of the bottlenose dolphins and why they choose to reside in Cardigan Bay and all the other marine wildlife which thrive within the Special Area of Conservation. Your guide and/or skipper will talk to you in person while you travel down the coast to Cwmtydu (on the one hour trip), passing seal haul-out areas, an auk colony, and historic sites. The two hour cruise you will take you further down the coast to the peninsular of Ynys Lochtyn, a distance of almost five miles near to the village of Llangrannog, the tip of Lochtyn island is a natural feeding area for the dolphins and one of the best places to look when they are not spotted in and around New Quay bay, they are not always there but it is a stunning place to visit and the journey has amazing views.
We are the only 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 one time you help to reduce the number of boats necessary, making for a less intrusive method of watching dolphins by cutting down on the associated traffic of the dolphin watching industry.
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.
