Sea safaris in Cornwall

If you love wildlife along with a little adventure on the high seas, it is certainly worth trying one of the many wonderful sea safaris now available all around Cornwall. There is a diverse range of species to be sighted along the Cornish coastline. Bottlenose dolphins and grey seals are commonly sighted, along with basking sharks. peregrine falcons and guillemots. Every so often there is a sighting of a rare breed such as the bowhead whale sighted off Long Rock near Marazion earlier this year.

Here are a few of the companies around the county offering wildlife boat trips.
