Time for a holiday?
Dolphin Spotting Boat Trips (New Quay) offer both 1 hour and 2 hour boat trips and operate 7 days a week (weather permitting). They have two purpose-built passenger boats which are fully equipped with life-jackets and rafts to take you safely along the protected coastline.
Trips depart from the historic pier at New Quay and head two miles down the coast to Cwmtydu (1 hour trip) or four miles down the coast to Ynys Llochtyn (2 hour trip). On the trips you will journey past grey seal haul-out areas and bird colonies where you can see a number of sea bird species (and a few rare species if lucky). If you are fortunate to encounter dolphins along the way your skipper will slow down or stop.
The Bottlenose Dolphins in Cardigan Bay are a protected species. Respect is shown for them by strictly operating in line with the marine code of conduct which states passenger boats are allowed to stay in their presence for 10 minutes. This allows passengers the best encounters with wildlife without causing the dolphins any disturbance or jeopardizing their safety.
These trips are suitable for all ages and dogs are more than welcome on board the Ermol boats.
The ERMOL V (2hr) boat has a toilet and cushioned seating, and both boats have a canopy covering 3/4 of the vessel for rain or sun protection. Both boats can offer wheelchair boarding by arrangement for a limited number of customers per trip (due to space).
This boat trip company also offer 2 and 4 hour Fishing Trips on the Dunbar Castle 2 - Suitable for all levels of experience with rod, tackle and bait all provided. Group bookings & Boat charters available.
