Trust’s Seaquest Southwest will be holding a Sea Watch sessions at St. Ives, especially for young members of Fox Club, the junior membership of the Trust. Dolphins and harbour porpoises are regularly spotted off the coast at St. Ives, and even if you don’t see them there is plenty to learn about our local marine life, as well as sharks, whales and seals. There will be plenty of seabirds to spot as well. Booking is essential on 01872 273939. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult, aged 18+. Binoculars or telescopes would be great, if you have them, we can provide binoculars if needed. Bringing lunch/snacks and a hot drink are advisable. The path to the lookout spot can be uneven and slippery in wet weather. Seaquest Southwest is a long-standing project that relies on the general public sending Cornwall Wildlife Trust their records of sea sightings such as dolphins, whales and other marine wildlife.
