Event Details

Cliff top watch for dolphins

Saturday 9 June 2018 11:30 - 15:30

Join us for a dolphin watch to celebrate World Oceans Day. Help us keep a look out for dolphins and other marine animals from the Kimmeridge cliffs. Learn what signs to look for, how to spot and identify them and find out more about the types of whale and dolphin that can be seen in Dorset. There will be skulls and bones from a variety of dolphins and whales to see and handle, along with information about how they feed, where they live, what threats they face and what actions we can take to protect them. You can drop in at any time during the event and stay as little or as long as you like. We will have binoculars available to borrow, but bring your own if you have them.

Come to the Fine Foundation Wild Seas Centre, located by the slipway in Kimmeridge Bay. Postcode BH20 5PE. Please be aware that access to Kimmeridge Bay is via a private road for which a toll of £5 per car is charged by Smedmore Estate (charges vary for other types of vehicle). Park in the main car park and follow the footpath to the east side of the bay. Free event but donations are welcome. Access to the look out is up very steep and sometimes slippery steps and the cliffs are high with no fence - sturdy shoes are essential. Our look out area is set back from the cliff edge but is not suitable for young children and dogs. All children must be accompanied by an adult. This event is weather dependent - phone the Marine Centre on 01929 481044 if unsure. You can drop in at any time during the event and stay as little or as long as you like.
