Ever wanted the chance to see dolphins and whales in their natural environment without going abroad? Well here's your chance to explore the marine life of the UK coast, with the possibility of seeing these beautiful sea creatures, on our dolphin and whale watching experience for two. The package also features free entry to the Maritime Museum on the day. Once you have boarded the boat, you'll be taken out into the coastal waters of Falmouth, Cornwall for up to two hours. You might see bottlenose and common dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks, minke and pilot whales, atlantic grey seals and sea birds. As these are all wild animals we can't guarantee which ones may make an appearance on the day, but we can ensure a fascinating wildlife experience.
Tours run all year round, including at least two dates per month, often more (almost exclusively Fridays and Saturdays). Summer trips are always popular - please book early.
Minimum age is 6; younger children are not permitted on board for safety reasons. Under 18's must be accompanied by an adult. Sorry, but wheelchair users, pregnant women or customers over 16 stone generally can't be accommodated.
It is essential that you call to confirm the weather forecast and exact timing of your experience (tide times change considerably) with the skipper 24 hours before your trip. If cancelled, you'll be re-booked for another day.
The trip usually lasts for around two hours.
Numbers on the Day
This experience is for two people. Your boat will carry a maximum of 12 passengers.
The boat trip is limited to paying participants, but friends and family are welcome to wave you off. Being close to Falmouth town centre, there are plenty of options to keep everyone happy until the boat returns.
Wear rubber-soled shoes (no heels please). Bring waterproofs and plenty of warm layers - it can get very cold out on the water. In warmer weather bring sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. Life-jackets are provided and (for adults) waterproofs too.
It is impossible to guarantee dolphin or whale sightings, but the vast majority of trips do encounter plenty of marine and bird life. Bring a camera!
