Sea Trust hopes to be running a number of boat trips aboard theCartlett Lady again in summer 2015. The Cartlett Lady is a 13.5 Ton Lochin Sportfisherman with twin engines and in the capable hands of skipper and owner Andy, provides an excellent, stable platform for observation.
The primary aim of these trips is to survey Common Dolphins and other cetaceans found in Pembrokeshire's waters. They also, however, provide an excellent opportunity to see and photograph other marine life such as Grey Seals and a wide variety of sea birds at close quarters.

This year we hope to be offering 2 forms of trips - dependent on weather and sea conditions - as follows:
Sundays - These trips are full day trips and will run from 9:30am-5/6pm at a cost of £80 per person.
Thursday afternoons-These trips will run from 2pm-6pm on nice Thursday afternoons during the summer and will head out around the islands at a cost of £50 per person.
Each trip has spaces for 10 people - first come, first served and further details will be announced as and when they become available
All trips start at Neyland Marina, meeting by the cafe half an hour before departure. After motoring up Milford Haven we will visit such places as The Bristol Channel, the Celtic Deep, Grassholm and The Smalls Lighthouse as well as Skomer and Skokholm. No two trips are the same and exactly which area is visited and the species seen will depend on weather and sea conditions on the day. Dolphins are wild animals and sightings cannot be guaranteed but our success rate has been 95% over the past ten years! There is a toilet on board and hot drinks will be provided. Bring a packed lunch, warm clothing and suncream.
