Sea Trust Dolphin Surveys
SEATRUST DOLPHIN SURVEYS 2011
We have been chartered again in 2011 by Seatrust, the marine arm of The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, who will be running a number of boat trips on Celtic Wildcat in the spring and summer.
The primary aim of these trips is to survey Common Dolphins and other cetaceans found in Pembrokeshire`s waters. They also, however, provide an excellent opportunity to see and photograph other marine life such as Grey Seals and Sunfish and a wide variety of sea birds at close quarters.
The dates for the trips in 2011 are as follows:-
April Tuesday 26th
July Thursday 7th , Thursday 21st, Friday 29th,
August Thursday 11th, Friday 19th, Thursday 25th,
September Friday 2nd, Thursday 15th, Thursday 29th
Places are limited to 12 per trip and must be booked in advance. Please email Sea Trust at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01348 875639 between 8am and 6pm if you wish to book a place. The cost of each trip is £55 per person, payable in cash on the day. No profit is made on the sale of places, it merely allows Sea Trust to place two volunteers on each trip to carry out the surveys.
All trips start at Neyland Marina SA73 1PY, meeting by the cafe at 8:30 a.m. with a departure at 9:00 a.m. After motoring up Milford Haven we will visit such places as The Bristol Channel, the Celtic Deep, Grassholm and The Smalls Lighthouse as well as Skomer and Skokholm. No two trips are the same and exactly which area is visited and the species seen will depend on weather and sea conditions on the day. Dolphins are wild animals and sightings cannot be guaranteed but our success rate has been 95% over the past eight years! Arrival back at Neyland Marina is usually between 5:00p.m. and 6:00p.m.
There is a toilet on board and hot drinks will be provided. Bring a packed lunch, warm waterproof clothing and suncream.
