Truly low impact fishing will support Living Seas and protect our local fishing heritage for future generations. Please help us to keep it local.

You can visit any of our visitor centres including our unique Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre and gift shop located on the sea front in the heart of New Quay overlooking the beach and harbour. Our only visitor centre dedicated to our Living Seas marine work.

Adopt a Cardigan Bay Dolphin

By adopting a really Welsh dolphin through the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre for just £30, you will make a significant contribution not only to the conservation of Cardigan Bay’s dolphins but also to the protection of other local wildlife and the marine environment.

Your support will help us with our Living Seas work including helping the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre continue its research and awareness-raising activities to help protect this sensitive environment.

Dolphin Survey Boat Trip Experience

We work in conjunction with Dolphin Survey Boat Trips, a local charter boat company that has been running wildlife trips from New Quay for over 20 years.

Our research is funded by the paying public; on each trip, a space is reserved for a volunteer from the CBMWC to join the survey and collect data on the marine animals sighted.

You can buy a gift voucher for a friend or loved one to join a two hour, four hour or All Day survey (minimum 8 hours – please check for details of trips). The price includes a presentation voucher, information about the trip, postage and packaging.
