Description:

Join us on a one and a half hour guided Bottlenose Dolphin Watching Boat...

Join us on a one and a half hour guided Bottlenose Dolphin Watching Boat Trip, leaving from the picturesque fishing village of New Quay, West Wales. Learn about the local history, geology and wildlife from our marine biologist guides and knowledgeable skippers. Trips run daily at 11.00am, 12.30pm, 2.00pm, 3.30pm & 5.00pm. Experience the wonders of under the water as we lift a lobster pot, allowing you to see close up and handle all the creatures that we catch. Kids (and adults) can have a supervised experience at steering the vessel if the weather is suitable.

Our vessel can only carry 12 passengers, so a personal experience is guaranteed. Our marine biologist guide will be with you the whole time to answer any questions you have, and fill you with facts on not just the dolphins, but the seals, the seabirds, the birds of prey, the jelly fish, the porpoise and anything else that happens to come along.

Book early to avoid disappointment, as our trips have become very popular we fill up early. Call us on our mobile number, or email.

Excellent boat trip with an amazing, experienced, informative and fun crew :) This is the second trip I have been on with SeaMor and I will definitely be going again. So grateful to have been able to see dolphins right next to the boat, amazing experience!

Hi Melissa! Thanks for your review. Glad you enjoyed the trip and the dolphins yesterday afternoon, I think they must have heard that rendition of 'Happy Birthday' that you sang at the beginning of the trip! Thanks again for the review, hopefully see you soon! Brett More

This was a spur of the moment decision, as rain was forecast, but so glad we did it. Went out on the 12.30 trip with Brett and Andy who were really chatty and passionate about the area and wildlife. We saw Velvet Crabs which were caught in their pots. Sea was pretty rough but that added to the excitement!! We... More

Hi Guys. Thanks for the review! I'm glad you had a great trip, it's always good to see passengers again, it reinforces to us that we must be doing something right. If you do come again, definitely bring the dog along, it's always a pleasure to have such well behaved animals on board.... Once I've got the video footage off... More

What a great experience! Our hosts Brett and Andy were really nice and explaned a lot about lobsters, krabs and prawnes! On the last 15 minutes of our trip we were lucky the sun began to shine and we saw 3 at least 3 dolphins near the harbour. That an enjoyable trip! We hope to return!

We, a family of eight with three kids, had a great time on the Islander - the boat used for the trip. Andy and Brett were great. They were knowledgeable and fun, and good with the kids. We also caught some crabs and lobsters, which we eventually put back in the water (the kids did), and what fun that was!!... More

Took the 2 hour trip on Elmor 5, crewed by Ben and Johnno, with Elouise from SeaWatch charity. We were lucky enough to see bottlenosed dolphins, gannet, oystercatcher, shag, guillemot kittywake, among other wildlife on the Ceredigion coast. Boat took us as far as Tresaith before turning back, passing nesting bird colonies. Boat maintained a respectful distance from the wildlife... More

We are so glad we booked the trip!. We could have booked the cheaper trip, on a larger boat for just a hour. We booked this 90 min trip on a smaller boat as the lady in the gift shop said "we're the best in Newquay". Brett and Andy welcomed us aboard and were so welcoming ad knowledgeable. We were... More
