Description

Join researchers from CBMWC on an All Day (minimum 8 hour) marine mammal survey in Cardigan Bay with Dolphin Survey Boat Trips. Throughout the survey researchers will collect important information on marine species in Cardigan Bay and the surrounding waters.

This is a great opportunity to see some of Wales’ amazing coastal views as well as our wonderful marine and seabird life. By joining a survey trip you will be contributing to marine conservation in Cardigan Bay as well as having the unique opportunity to join our team of experts.

Sightings in previous years have included bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoises, Atlantic grey seals, common dolphins, sunfish, numerous jellyfish species, possible Minke whale sightings and sightings of thresher sharks.

For more details and to book your place please call 01545 560032 between 10am and 4pm. The cost is £60 per person for the day, payable in advance. Full refunds will be given if trips are cancelled by Dolphin Survey Boat Trips. Places must be booked in advance due to limited spaces. All trips will depart from New Quay harbour and will last approximately 8 hours (occasionally longer depending on survey route for the day).

These long trips run subject to the weather conditions forecast, a decision whether the trip will go ahead will be made as soon as possible but to avoid disappointment we try to make the decision as close to the departure date as possible (usually 20-48 hours before departure), they are subject to last minute cancellation.

Please bring your own food (plenty to share, the skipper and researchers particularly like biscuits and cake!), warm clothing, binoculars, sensible shoes and don’t forget your camera.

Please remember that these are wild animals, sightings cannot be guaranteed and that you are joining a scientific survey.
