In the event of rough weather

On all our wildlife trips advertised if for any reason the weather becomes too rough to leave the Carrick Roads and head offshore, we will still carry on with the trip but head back up the Carrick Roads and explore our wonderful and wildlife-rich Fal estuary which stretches all the way up to Truro.

These rivers are full of lots of wildlife and on board a boat is a beautiful way to explore the small creeks. A plethora of waders, deer and waterbirds can be seen, as well as visits from our seals, inshore dolphins and porpoises. Classified as a Special Area of Conservation, the Fal Estuary is nationally important for several migratory and waterbirds, such as ospreys, black-necked grebes and red breasted merganser.

The Fal is the third deepest natural harbour in the World and has over sixty miles of coastline and beautifully wooded bank side shore within this vastly diverse and rich in wildlife marine and estuary habitat.

Best wildlife cruises I've ever done, expertly led by Captain Keith and his team. Whether you get lucky and see lots of unusual wildlife (eg a super pod of >200 dolphins!) or a quieter day when it's mostly seals and seabirds, it's a fabulous experience. Wonderful mix of seafaring, geography and wildlife expertise, and all delivered with friendly good humour. Not to be missed!

Dan Tunnicliff

An amazing experience. We were all given good advice on what to look out for through our binoculars (take your own or hire a pair) and info about the local waters and animals. We saw gannets and gulls on the way out, then within an hour we were surrounded by bottlenose dolphins, including some very young calves. Captain Keith and Gabby made sure everyone knew where to look and that each person had a chance to stand on the front of the boat to see them right underneath you. They were so close it was unbelievable, we could hear them squeaking to each other.
Spent some decent time with several pods then left them to move on at their own pace so it didn't feel like we were bothering them. On return to shore we saw some porpoises and a seal having a nap.
The Captain really seems to care about the sea life which is lovely. The four of us had a brilliant day, we would definitely recommend!!
