Welcome to Marine Discovery Penzance
Join us on our sailing catamaran, Shearwater II, for a truly unique marine wildlife watching adventure. What makes West Cornwall such a special place for wildlife watching is its sheer diversity. Trips could encounter 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! Having these experiences under sail gives you the most special encounter possible, the quiet meaning you can hear the splashes of the gannets as they dive and the whistles of the dolphins as they bowride alongside us (check out our videos to see for yourself). You can also be reassured that the tour you have chosen is the most environmentally responsible option. Part of what makes Marine Discovery exceptional is that we use our trips to collect scientific data. No other tour company in the country does this to the same extent and it is an incredibly important part of our job.
We are hoping for good conditions this season so we can have another fantastic dolphin watching year.
Duncan, Hannah and their small team are completely dedicated to giving the best experience possible and are looking forward to welcoming you to Marine Discovery - In 2013 Marine Discovery won the Responsible Whale and Dolphin Watch Operator of the year.
