Visitor Centre

Staffed by volunteers, our visitor centre is free to enter and is open seven days a week between April and November. It was refurbished in 2008 with grant aid from the Countryside Council for Wales and Awards for All Wales (Big Lottery Fund). The facilities include interpretative and interactive displays showcasing the huge variety of marine wildlife found in Cardigan Bay, including an aquarium full of rock pool species. There's also a gift shop area so that you can take home a souvenir of your time here.

The exhibits provide information on different themes such as the dolphins, seals and birds which can be spotted locally, the geology of the area and important issues surrounding pollution and sustainable fishing. There's also information on how people can help protect the area and a sightings board which is updated daily with the latest local sightings, weather and tide information.

At the visitor centre you can also purchase tickets for a Dolphin Survey Boat Trip.

Boat Trips

By booking your dolphin watching trip with Dolphin Survey Boat Trips you are supporting the research of the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre as each trip carries a volunteer researcher from CBMWC.

Join a 1, 2, 4 or 8 hour guided boat trip with New Quay's experts. Enjoy the dolphins, porpoise, seals and birds that visit this beautiful part of the Welsh coastline.

Proceeds from ticket sales support this locally-based vessel business and CBMWC research projects.

Please note that sightings are not guaranteed as these are wild animals.
