Dolphin Watching Boat Trips

Cardigan Bay Wildlife Tours


Location: New Quay 19 miles 30 Minutes drive



Cardigan Bay is home to Britain’s biggest resident population of dolphins – you can see bottlenose dolphins all year round and New Quay is the hottest spot. Harbour porpoises are also frequently spotted and if you’re really lucky the odd Orca or humpback may swim by!

New Quay is definitely Dolphin Central – you are almost guaranteed to see a dolphin even from the harbour wall. To increase your chances, take one of the daily charter boats out into the bay. SeaMor operate 90 minute guided Dolphin Watching Boat Trips from 1st April to 31st October. The boats are for a maximum of 12 people and price is roughly £20-25.

They also offer a Sunset trip where there is an even higher sighting rate as the fish the dolphins feed on are more active closer to the surface. The price is the same as the daytime tours.

For a really special day out, you can arrange a half or full day private hire with a marine biologist and qualified skipper to ferry you along the coast. You can take part in dolphin surveys and listen to them with the underwater hydrophone. Swim and snorkel or visit Cardigan Island to see the grey seals. Visit the gorgeous beaches at Llangrannog and Tresaith or stop for lunch in Aberaeron. You can choose your own itinerary.
