Harbour Porpoise are with us throughout the year and seen on most of our trips. Bottle-nosed and White-beaked Dolphins are now being seen every year on the coast in increasing numbers!
These special full day trips have been designed to allow the flexibility to target the best stretch of coastline depending on where the seabird and/or In 2018 we will run our trips from Staithes again with up to 6 hours at sea!
We use chum to attract the birds to the boat which makes a big difference, often allowing closer views and opportunities for photography!
