Overview

Dolphin watching in Cardigan Bay from our purpose-built, large, stable and roomy catamaran cruiser "Shearwater". We operate from Pwllheli, in the north of Cardigan Bay, visiting offshore seal and seabird colonies and we are usually accompanied by the resident dolphins. We undertake dolphin monitoring and Photo-ID surveys of the dolphin population on behalf of the 'Seawatch Foundation', the leading charitable orgainisation monitoring cetaceans around the coast of the UK. We also see large puffin colonies and get really close to the friendly seals of our offshore islands.

Did this cruise back in September 2014 wit my partner and my parents. We all had a throughly enjoyable time and are hoping that we can do this again this September when we return.

We found the boat to be a good size for the amount of people on the tour and the commentary was very informative. With wildlife, of course, there are no guarantees, but the tour was worth the money anyway. If you are visiting this area...More
