Sightings in September

Sightings in September

Why do we include a weather report in our monthly sightings video? Having an idea of what the weather was doing during the time of seeing a whale, dolphin or harbour porpoise is important because it dictates the conditions out at sea. Wet, wild and windy weather means it’s much trickier to spot and I.D…. View more

We love hearing from Adopters who often contact us with feedback about our membership scheme, have questions about how to use their boat vouchers, or want suggestions for where to stay when visiting New Quay.
