Cardigan Bay

About Cardigan Bay

Cardigan Bay is the largest Bay in the British Isles, stretching approximately 50 miles from Bardsey Island off the Llyn Peninsular in the north to Strumble Head in Pembrokeshire in the South. Cardigan Bay is home to a rich variety of wildlife including the largest resident population of bottlenose dolphins in the whole of Europe. Although the ever playful bottlenose dolphins which often steal the limelight, Cardigan Bay is also home the smaller harbour porpoise, atlantic grey seals, and a wide variety of bird species.

This has lead to Cardigan Bay's beautiful coastline being designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) to help ensure its beauty and its wildlife is safeguarded for generations to come.

Special Area Of Conservation

The SAC covers an area starting at Ceibwr Bay, just down the coast from Cardigan and runs along the coastline covering Cardigan Island, Mwnt, Aberporth, Tresiath, Llangrannog, New Quay Aberaeron and on to Aberarth.

Our trips depart from Cardigan which is situated within the SAC. Our operating also includes Mwnt, Aberporth and Cardigan Island which are the most reliable places in the SAC to see the Bay's resident bottlenose dolphins.
