Owner description: Dolphin watching in Cardigan Bay from our purpose-built, large, stable and roomy catamaran cruiser "Shearwater". We operate from Pwllheli, in the north of Cardigan Bay, visiting offshore seal and seabird colonies and we are usually accompanied by the resident dolphins. We undertake dolphin monitoring and Photo-ID surveys of the dolphin population on behalf of the 'Seawatch Foundation', the leading charitable orgainisation monitoring cetaceans around the coast of the UK. We also see large puffin colonies and get really close to the friendly seals of our offshore islands.

While we were camping in Pwllheli, we went on the afternoon cruise with Shearwater. It was rather pricey at £38 per person, but was really worth it. The highlight of the trip was the dolphins swimming ahead of the boat giving us a performance in the wild. The seal colony and the bird colonies were also very interesting. All in all, time and money well spent.

What a brilliant boat trip to see the dolphins, seals and bird life in Cardigan Bay.

The Shearwater is a very modern (delivered in 2010), clean, quiet and comfortable boat and is superbly run by Alan and Roy (who makes a great cup of tea!)

They were both very helpful and knowledgeable – it is such a refreshing change to go on a trip where the guides are more interested in the wildlife than making a few quid.

We would recommend this trip to anyone with even a slight interest in wildlife. To see the dolphins in their natural habitat was breathtaking.
