Dolphin and Porpoise Surveys

In south and west Wales we have arguably some of the best coastline in the world. Rich in wildlife and stunning in character the seas which border our patch are teeming with life. Where the Gulf Stream meets the colder waters that surround our islands there is a rich food source.

With that rich food source comes some of the best dolphin and porpoise watching you could imagine. With both resident and transitory populations these cetaceans are often seen swimming around our shores.

Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre is home to our LIving Seas team, they are researching the occurrance and behaviour of  the dolphins and porpoises and you can help by joining them on a survey trip. Our research trips are run by Dolphin Survey Boat Trips, when you pay for your trip out on the boat you are enabling our volunteers and Living Seas staff to join them to collect important data. What is a fantastic day out for you contributes to our essential long term research work into our marine environment.
