Wildlife

Wildlife in New Quay, Wales

The bottlenose dolphins are the main attraction, feeding, socialising and breaching up to four metres into the air. We are fortunate that Cardigan Bay is one of the best places in the UK to spot dolphins rearing their young and sometimes  are brought right up to our boats . Atlantic grey seals can also be spotted bobbing in the water and hauled out on rocks in the spots which our experienced guides will point out to you. Depending on the time of year there are a variety of sea birds which fill the cliffs and skies.

You will learn more about the wildlife during your trip and some of the local history and geology but we keep our talks fun and entertaining. All our trips are operated in accordance with the Ceredigion Marine Code of Conduct, to learn more about this go to : https://cardiganbaysac.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/commercial-Marine-Code-2023.pdf
