DOLPHIN SPOTTING BOAT TRIPS , New Quay, Ceredigion, West Wales. Open April - October 30th. We operate 7 days a week (weather permitting) and offer both ONE and TWO hour dolphin spotting boat trips from the historic pier in New Quay along our beautiful coastline in the Cardigan Bay special area of conservation. Our large stable, purpose built passenger boats abide by a strict marine code of conduct for protection of the local wildlife and are skippered by experienced boat masters. The guide on board will be keeping a look-out for the Bottlenose Dolphins which reside in the area whilst providing an informative talk on the wildlife and local history. On both trips you will travel past seal haul-out areas and sea bird nesting sites. Our 1 hour trips venture to the smuggler's cove of Cwmtydu. 2 hour trips venture further down the coastline to the peninsular of Ynys Lochtyn - a natural feeding grounds for dolphins. Boats are dog friendly! 2 and 4 hour fishing trips are also available.

New Quay Dolphin Spotting Boat Trip. 2 hours from 12.30 pm on Tuesday 17/07/18. This was on my bucket list. It was a superb experience witnessing dolphins apparently oblivious to our presence because our boat was far enough away not to impinge on their behaviours...More

The boat was great fun, the staff had a very good sense of humour and local knowledge. Stopped and saw several dolphins with the boat stopped and giving them space. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely go again.
