WILD ABOUT SEA LIFE, PASSIONATE ABOUT DOLPHINS

 

Dolphin Watch UK offer Award Winning, Fully-Guided, Dolphin Friendly, Eco Wildlife Watching Trips.  Sailing out of the beautiful South West Country ports of Dartmouth, Weymouth, Lyme Regis, Brixham, Paignton, Plymouth, Salcombe, Torquay, Fowey and St Ives.  We work with some of the best and most experienced skippers and guides in the UK whose knowledge and passion of these animals and waters extends over countless years.  

Watching dolphins started as a hobby in my childhood, an infatuation you might call it, but has since become a way of life in adulthood.  Our trips offer an opportunity to see not only Dolphins but other species of sea life including Seals, Porpoises, Seabirds and possibly Sharks, SunfishWhales and even GIANT Bluefin Tuna.  It is advisable to bring along a camera to record what will be a wonderful day out in the fresh sea air in some of the most idyllic environments and scenery this country has to offer.  Check out our dolphin counters showing recent sightings by our skippers and crew members.  It is these mariners and their unique knowledge and experience of their home waters we rely on to provide the best possible opportunities to locate and watch these wonderful creatures in their natural habitat, and locate them, they do!  With a combined sightings of just under 30,000 cetaceans last year from three ports. Brixham with the largest at 21,416....2022 is currently shaping up to be even better!

PLEASE REMEMBER, regardless of what company you book with, (we do hope it will be us), please consider the following in order to get an unforgettable experience:   1) Make sure the operator holds a WiSe ACCREDITATION and follows a STRICT CODE OF CONDUCT on the water.  This will ensure that the ANIMALS are APPROCHED SAFELY and RESPECTFULLY WITHOUT CAUSING DISTURBANCE and that they are able to LEAD THE INTERACTIONS.  Whilst everyone wants to be close to the animals, it shouldn't be at the detriment to them and you will get a far far better encounter this way than by chasing them around. 2) The trips are LED BY PASSIONATE AND KNOWLEDGABLE GUIDES, meet our fantastic team by clicking here.
