Protecting Wildlife

Whilst the Bottle-nosed Dolphins of Cardigan Bay do seem to be thriving, there is some concern that increased leisure boating activity in the area may put them under environmental pressure. The Marine Conservation Society has issued guidelines for boat users, and these are summarised below:

1) When encountering dolphins, if they approach the boat or bow-ride, maintain a slow speed and steady course until they are clear. They should never be chased or harassed in an attempt to make them bow-ride. When watching dolphins always let them decide what happens.

2) Keep your distance. Try not to go closer than 100m (200m if another boat is present) and remain stationary. Never drive head on to, move between, scatter, or separate dolphins. If unsure of their movements, slow down gradually, stop and put the engine into neutral.

3) Please spend no longer than 15 minutes with the animals and never try to feed, touch or swim with dolphins for both your safety and theirs.
