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 a dolphin and whale watching experience. The package also features discounted 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 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.


It is essential to call to confirm the weather forecast and exact timing of the experience (tide times change considerably) with the skipper 24 hours before the trip. If cancelled, expect to be re-booked for another day.

How long does the experience last?

The trip usually lasts for around two hours.

How many other people?

The boat carries a maximum of 12 passengers.

Can I take people to watch?

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.

What do I wear?

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.

Are there any restrictions?

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.

Anything Else?

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!
