The far south west of Cornwall is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the whole world! Sailing along this coast on a clear, sunny day with that magical Cornish light reflecting off the turquoise sea and white sands of the Land's End peninsula, there really is nowhere better. Joining us for a voyage on our unique sailing catamaran, Shearwater II, means that you will have one of the most eco-friendly trips of this type possible. What makes West Cornwall such a special place for marine wildlife watching is its sheer diversity. Encounters could include inquisitive grey seals and graceful seabirds, or various species of dolphins and porpoises, enigmatic ocean sunfish or even giants such as minke whales, basking sharks and leatherback turtles! Sailing really gives you the most special encounter possible, the quiet meaning you can hear the splashes of the gannets as they dive and the squeaks and whistles of the dolphins as they bowride alongside us. Have a look at some of our videos on You Tube to see what we mean!
Since Marine Discovery started in 2005, we have also collected over 25,000 miles of scientific effort-based data, giving you the best chance of any boat trip in Cornwall to find dolphins and other marine wildlife (we are unique in Cornwall in that we upload sightings of every single day we are out on the water to our website, rather than only cataloguing our “best” ones) Part of the magic of wildlife watching of course is never knowing what you're going to get!
We hope to see you here in Penzance soon.
