Wildlife Courses & Trips Trips

Wildlife trips

Our main aim is to get you into the heart of the action, whether that be a boat trip out to see the seals on the Mew Stone, a leisurely trip up the river to look for otters or bird life, a shore walk in the company of a marine biologist, a longer excursion to a local dive site, or a mini expedition to find and film basking sharks or dolphins.

Our wildlife trips combine the versatility of a fast, comfortable boat with the expertise of local knowledge, creating opportunities for once in a lifetime encounters in the countryside and coastline surrounding Dartmouth. All ages, abilities, dogs and inclinations are welcome!
