Dolphin and Wildlife Explorer at Sunset
See the Sunset at New Quay
The only place to see the sunset in New Quay is at sea
Our sunset trips follow the same route as our normal, daytime trips (which can be viewed here), and we also lift the lobster pots. It does, however, have a higher dolphin sighting rate and this is partly due to the diel verticle migrationwhere small organisms come closer to the surface to feed and breed during the night, when their predators find it more difficult to see them. During the half light just before sunset, the fish which the dolphins prey on are more active, and in turn, makes the dolphins more active.
Because we can only carry 12 passengers, the sunset trips usually fill up quickly. It is highly advisable to book online or contact us at least a day in advance to book or register an interest as we don’t run them every evening. If you call, we can give you an idea on the weather conditions and which days we are likely to run. On days where the tide allows, we also do the sunset trip on our RIB, which can be seen in our gallery.
