Cornwall by Season

Falmouth Bay and the surrounding Cornish coastal waters by season

Throughout the twelve months of the year, the warm Gulf Stream waters push into the Western Approaches of the English Channel.  This warm current of water laps on the southern shores of Cornwall and the whole of Falmouth Bay.  Tides ebb and flow twice daily around the Lizard Peninsular, bringing with them a vast array of exciting marine species, including dolphins and whales plus a host of wonderful bird life, into this area of outstanding natural beauty.
