Pembrokeshire’s Spectacular Sealife

Visiting Pembrokeshire? Then it’s likely that you are interested in the beautiful countryside , the sea and the wildlife.

In the past few years we have been treated to visits from a walrus, who caused a stir, and a humpbacked whale – both passing through.

Normal fare for us living here are seals, dolphins, porpoises and the occasional orca, but watch out for the weaver fish and the jellyfish. Keen swimmers do not enter the sea without something on their feet. You have been warned.

Bottlenose dolphins are common here, particularly  in summer months, but you can increase your chances of a sighting without even having to book a boat tour by taking a trip to North Pembrokeshire’s Dinas Head or Strumble Head .

Lovely coves and walks are here too and these present great opportunities for spotting porpoises, Risso’s dolphins and common dolphins, and the occasional basking sharks, sunfish, orcas, and minke and humpback whales.

If you want to know more, visit Goodwick’s Ocean Lab which, as well as having a delightful café overlooking the sea, holds a wealth of knowledge and information.
