As a recommended boat partner of the Sea Watch Foundation, we are looking forward to taking part in their annual National Whale and Dolphin Watch which takes place from the 27th July to the 4th August this year.
As they explained in a recent news release...
"Every year for nine days in late July, Sea Watch Foundation look for wildlife enthusiasts and around the UK to support National Whale and Dolphin Watch, a citizen science project organized by the Sea Watch Foundation now in its 18th year, hoping to catch a glimpse of whales, dolphins and porpoises visiting the seas around the British Isles. The event this year is taking place from Saturday 27th July until Sunday 4th August 2019 and it marks the long-lasting collaboration between citizen scientists, wildlife enthusiasts, the general public and researchers alike."
