Memories of the seaside

When you arrive in the seaside town of New Quay in West Wales, the worlds of the sea and land stand side-by-side to meet you.  

As you step out of the car, rolling up the hill the town has been built on, that salty freshness so distinct to the sea begins to fill your nostrils. 

And with that, crossed with smells of fresh coffee wafting out of little cafes and views of ice cream being held up triumphantly in the hands of both little ones and grownups alike – memories of seaside holidays inevitably crop up from the past.  

But this time, the beach isn’t the only destination on the cards, and seagulls come in second place to the animals you’re about to see.  

Stepping on board 

On the Dolphin Spotting Boat Trip, we think you might be able to guess what sea dweller you’re about to be scanning the surface of the water for.  

Whether you’re taking a trip on the Dreamcatcher, or hopping on board the Ermol VI – some things come as a guarantee on a voyage with Dolphin Spotting Boat Trips in New Quay. 

The engine bubbles to life below you, ropes untethered from shore, and soon you’re drifting away with the tide.  

Smells of flowering plant life and musty earth are replaced with scents of salty seaweed, views of land rising and falling in the distance become one uninterrupted panorama of sea and sky.  

Then before you know it, you’re headed out further into open water; into the home of the dolphins.  

Compared to watching these creatures dance through the water in a documentary, actually seeing a fin break the surface or a spray of saltwater being thrown up into the sky as they exhale is a completely unparalleled experience. 

Welcome to the world of the sea 

But along with the dolphins, there’s something rather enchanting about being on the sea.  

You lose time simply staring out into the distance, watching the white-peaked waves ushering out from the hull of the boat. 

Heading out in summer, you’ll have the warmth of the sun keeping you company. But we’ve got to say, autumn brings its own unique beauty to the tour.  

Surrounding you, the lively waters rise and fall, like a million mountain peaks breaking the surface every moment, before being submerged once again. 

Whether it’s the dolphins that steal the show, or you’re simply fascinated watching the waves roll by, an adventure out from New Quay into the waters of Cardigan Bay will leave you in awe of the sea and life within it. 

You might even find yourself booking your next tour before you’re out of town, and when it comes to wildlife and nature, no two trips are ever the same.
