Wild about Sea Life, Passionate about Dolphins


Dolphin Watch UK offers fully-guided dolphin and wildlife watching trips, sailing out of the beautiful West County ports of Brixham, Fowey and St Ives.  We work with some of the best and most experienced skippers in the UK whose knowledge of these 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, sunfish or even whales.  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.
