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.

Excellent experienced skipper and also a Sicilian marine biologist who have a passion for the sea but especially dolphins .Max 12 on the boat. Informative humorous commentary ,questions and answers. First visit two sites for examining the contents of two... More

This was a very good family trip. Excellent captain and marine biologist, informing us on the geology, birds, and sea life. Lots of dolphins all around, some seals and interesting animals in the lobster pots, a small shark and lobster. Boat allows very good viewing, and small number of guests add to the intimate atmosphere. We thought it was a... More

We've been regular visitors to New Quay for over 12 years now and there's not much we haven't tried in this wonderful place. About 5 years ago we tried a new type of boat trip, the SeaMôr Dolphin Boat Trip. This is not a 'cram em on' excursion where a tour guide speaks to the group, (the boat only carries... More

After googling a few boat trips we chose this one and emailed for availability. We were quickly emailed back by a friendly guy who gave us all the info we needed. After booking over the phone he then advised to call the night before to check the trip was still on due to sea conditions. It was raining and cold... More

The guides were brilliant. They were really friendly and very informative too. We saw a lot of wildlife (including dolphins!) I'd highly recommend it! It was really good value for money and would be great for families or adults. I actually downloaded the trip advisor app just because I wanted to review this trip.

Great cruise. Seen dolphins swimming close to the boat. Sea was a bit rough but had fantastic time. Loved seeing the spider crab. Velvet crab and lobster which were all released after a short lesson on them. Sunset was beautiful. Would definately do again. Just hope for calmer seas xx

We all thoroughly enjoyed our trip with you. We experienced a beautiful sunset with 2 dolphins bobbing very close to our boat. It was a beautiful experience for us all. The crew were informative and clearly enjoyed their jobs. Would recommend as a must do!

We've been to New Quay for our family summer holiday a few years now, and always go on a SeaMor boat trip. The staff are always friendly, and extremely informative. Always really interesting to see what's in the lobster pots! On these trips we've seen Dolphins, Peregrine Falcons, Shearwaters, Gannets, Littywakes, Oyster Catchers, Herring Gulls, Guillemots, lots of types of... More
