We were lucky enough to take our dolphin spotting trip on a day with beautifully clear blue skies, not much wind, and warm September sun. It didn't take long to spot a dolphin and I spotted four in total. We also saw a seal and her pup, beautiful sea birds and enjoyed the commentary from the captain who was very... More

A thoroughly enjoyable boat trip even though we didn't see the dolphins - but we did see the seals and enjoyed the commentary from the captain. However we did see the dolphins later in the week in the bay.

We spent a whole week in New Quay and towards the end of the week we started wondering whether we'd actually see any dolphins. We opted for the evening cruise and wow what a trip. The skipper was very friendly and is full of interesting info about the cliffs, birds, landmarks etc and there is a full live commentary. Coming... More

I went on the evening trip. The talk was informative and interesting. They advertised wine but only had soft drinks left. The engines ere a bit noisy. But it was only £10 so good value overall. I really enjoyed the trip and it keeps pleasing through the photos and news on their facebook page.

Loved every minute of this trip. The guys were funny and informative and even though we didn't get the good fortune to see any dolphins it was a very good trip. We did get to see George the seagull!

A group of 3 of us took a 1hr trip yesterday. The weather was beautiful and we couldn't have wished for a better time. My mum had her walker with her and the crew were lovely and efficient with getting it and us on board. We got to see dolphins and the odd seal popping it's head up along with... More

Booked a one hour trip around the bay. Boat was packed and there was plenty to see. We saw all the usual large sea birds and some seals but unfortunately no dolphins.
