Marine wildlife sea safaris in Falmouth Bay


Orca Sea Safaris, one of Cornwall's top boat trips, offer wildlife watching and coastal safaris in some of the UK’s most stunning waters.

If you look out from the hotel you will see the fast turquoise powerboat in the bay, normally heading South towards the famous Manacle Rocks where they often see seals, dolphins, and Basking Sharks.

Leaving from Falmouth on their purpose-built Seaquest of Falmouth, the trips take in the spectacular sights of the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay.

They aim is to introduce you to the outstanding beauty of our coastline, while looking for wildlife that may be in the area. A huge array of species visit the area including dolphins, seals, whales, seabirds and basking sharks.

While seeing all of these amazing animals can never be guaranteed, Cornwall’s coastal waters offer the perfect environment for pods of dolphins, groups of seals, basking sharks and whales.
