We have teamed up with Yorkshire Coast Nature and Real Staithes on their seabird and whale watching trips off the coast in Staithes, North Yorkshire. These fantastic full-day trips are fully guided by experts and each is tailored to the best stretch of coastline for seabird and whale action on the day.

We work with Yorkshire Coast Nature and Real Staithes to provide eight hour, expertly guided days of seabird and whale watching. You'll be familiarised with seabirds and sea-watching techniques in a land-based training session before setting sail.

The trips are also used to gather important conservation information about marine mammals including whales and dolphins spotted in the North Sea, helping us to continue our conservation work and protect marine wildlife in the area.

Dr James Wood, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Marine Manager said; “We are delighted to work with Yorkshire Coast Nature and Real Staithes and together we will provide not only a wonderful experience for those onboard but also improve the monitoring of local marine mammal populations. Together, we will also collect more information about the movements, distribution and abundance of these species to help ensure their long-term conservation.”

Booking is essential. Dates and details are available on the Yorkshire Coast Nature website. You can also find more detail on what you can expect from seabird and whale watching adventures.
