Attraction details
Owner description: Join us on a one and a half hour guided Bottlenose Dolphin Watching Boat Trip, leaving from the picturesque fishing village of New Quay, West Wales. Learn about the local history, geology and wildlife from our marine biologist guides and knowledgeable skippers. Trips run daily at 11.00am, 12.30pm, 2.00pm, 3.30pm & 5.00pm. Experience the wonders of under the water as we lift a lobster pot, allowing you to see close up and handle all the creatures that we catch. Kids (and adults) can have a supervised experience at steering the vessel if the weather is suitable. Our vessel can only carry 12 passengers, so a personal experience is guaranteed. Our marine biologist guide will be with you the whole time to answer any questions you have, and fill you with facts on not just the dolphins, but the seals, the seabirds, the birds of prey, the jelly fish, the porpoise and anything else that happens to come along. Book early to avoid disappointment, as our trips have become very popular we fill up early. Call us on our mobile number, or email.

“Brilliant trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

We booked a trip with the seamor crew on impulse whilst staying in Newquay for a few days. Glad we did! They were extremely knowledgable about marine life and the birdlife and history of the coastline around the area, also very pleasant with lots of interesting anecdotes. First stop was a reef a little way out from the harbour. They had baited lobster pots there and we were able to handle the crabs that had been trapped (all returned safely to the sea) as well as having learning about the diversity of the specimens and their different lifestyles. Really interesting to have the crew identify all the seabirds we could see on the cliffs and on the sea, had no idea there was that variety around the coast. Didn't get to sea dolphins that time (plenty around the harbour early morning and evening though), but there was so much else that was interesting and informative that it was a highlight of our holiday.

“Well worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Domestic management and I visited New Quay with the intention of taking a dolphin watch trip and stopped to speak to speak with the SeaMor folks. I'm very glad we did as the crew were very knowledgeable and sociable, taking time to explain the local sealife that obligingly had wandered into their lobster pots to us and a whole lot more. Well worth the extra time and money. Warmly recommended.

We went out on the new RIB with Brett this August. It was amazing, we saw dolphins and beautiful skies. The best bit was going really, really fast. It was so much fun!! Cant wait to do it again! Thanks Brett for a brilliant adventure! :)

“Worthwhile & informative trip, friendly hosts too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

This trip is well worth taking, having a smaller boat means you 're not stuck looking at other people's heads instead of seeing the wildlife around you! Very friendly team, Luke even handed over his binoculars so that my son could see a seal on the rocks in the distance. it's obvious they care about the wildlife too & are very informative, it's an interactive experience well worth the money, good for all the family & even the genuine latecomers!!
