Dolphin Watching Boat Trips from New Quay

Our Most Popular Tour

Dolphin and Wildlife Explorer

Join us on a one and a half hour guided Dolphin Watching Boat Trip, leaving from the picturesque fishing village of New Quay, Ceredigion, West Wales. Learn about the local history, geology and wildlife from our marine biologist guides and knowledgeable skippers. Trips from New Quay leave from the end of the main pier, and our booking office is in the gift shop next to the ice cream shop on the seafront in New Quay. No trip is the same and although we cannot guarantee wildlife sightings we typically see bottlenose dolphins, a variety of seabirds, grey seals and harbour porpoises. Occasional visitors here are sunfish, basking sharks, minke whales and even humpback whales!

The crew will help you identify the different species we see and you can assist in the dolphin research conducted in Cardigan Bay by the SeaMôr team. We also conduct photo-identification of the dolphins, and all data is passed to Sea Watch Foundation for analysis. We carry a hydrophone onboard and listen to the dolphins and porpoises every time we see them.

All trips leave from New Quay main pier. A typical trip runs for 1.5hrs, and costs £17 for adults and £12 for children 16 or under. Trips are weather dependent and we can only fit 12 people so advance booking is required.
