There’s nothing quite as special as watching wildlife in its natural habitat, and with this Dolphin Watching for Two, you’ll have the chance to do just that, helping to support vital dolphin research all the while. Cardigan Bay is one of the best places in Europe for dolphin watching, and one of only two areas in the UK hosting a semi-resident population of bottlenose dolphins.
You’ll provided with a full commentary by your fully qualified skipper, who’ll take you to the most likely locations to spot a dolphin or two. A designated Special Area of Conservation, the location is recognised for its ecological importance and boasts a wide range of habitats and creatures. As well as dolphins, look out for harbour porpoises, Atlantic grey seals, sunfish and a variety of seabirds.
Although species sightings depend on the weather and time of year and can’t be guaranteed, nothing beats the anticipation of spotting one of these impressive wild animals.
