Condor Ferries Launches MARINElife Day Trips

Condor Ferries has announced the introduction of a number of MARINElife Day Trips to the Channel Islands, offering passengers the opportunity to spot marine mammals and seabirds in the English Channel on a day out on the water.

MARINElife conduct monthly surveys onboard Condor Ferries fast and conventional ferries running to Jersey and Guernsey. Over the past few months a wide variety of marine life and seabirds have been sighted from the ferries sailing departing Weymouth. These include Common Dolphin, Harbour Porpoise, Minke Whale, Great Skua, Manx shearwater and Gannet. In total, since surveys began at the start of 2014, 21 different seabird species have been recorded.

To make the most of this wonderful wildlife, Condor Ferries will be introducing weekly MARINElife day trip sailings to Guernsey throughout July and August. With a Wildlife Officer on board, birdwatchers, marine enthusiasts and nature novices alike, will have the chance to discover the various species in both air and sea, learn more about how to spot and identify species making for the perfect day out for all the family.

MARINElife is a Dorset based research, education and conservation charity conducting year round scientific surveys of whales, dolphins and seabirds. The trips will also help to raise funds to continue this important work.

Weymouth to Guernsey 2014 Day Trips will take place on July 23, August 6 and 20. Poole to Guernsey Day Trips will take place on July 16 and 30, August 13 and 27.
