Dolphin and Porpoise Walk: A slow walk along the coast path taking in the Birds Rock lookout. A good chance to try and spot marine mammals as well as see other coastal wildlife on route. Some steep sections and uneven ground.

Treasure Hunt: Discover New Quay’s natural treasures armed with your map and compass…

Rockpool Rummage: Explore the gullies and rockpools of Traeth Dolau as the tide drops to reveal a hidden world. Wear grippy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet!

Sand Sculpture: Forget castles, think 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea! Help us to recreate a sub-marine food web.

All walks and other events meet at the Boat Place on New Quay harbour. Unless otherwise stated they will last about two hours and we ask for a donation to help fund our wildlife awareness raising work (suggested minimum £1 per person). We cannot accept unaccompanied children on any of our events.
