    We are delighted to be teaming up with Sea Watch Foundation again this year to offer specialist cetacean photography trips.  On these trips we will be joined by a Sea Watch Foundation scientist and professional photographer Janet Baxter.  This is a 3 hour trip dedicated to looking for cetaceans where Sea Watch staff will be carrying out photo ID on the animals to help build up their data base and knowledge of these animals.  Sea Watch’s main mission is to improve the conservation of whales, dolphins and porpoises and we are very excited to be involved with this.

    We have a license to approach cetaceans when working with Sea Watch and you will also have the opportunity to benefit from some informal wildlife photography tuition from Janet Baxter.  This is an exclusive trip with limited numbers and advance booking is essential.

    These trips will be run on the last weekend of the month weather permitting, for more information please phone 07494 141764 or email

Her books, illustrations and art, reflect her deep love of the natural world, and the magic that connects us to it through myth and story. Her many books include: ‘The Seal Children’ set on the coast near her Pembrokeshire home, a tale of mythical beings, selkies, that walk as humans and swim as seals; Something About a Bear is on the Greenaway shortlist.


    This is a rare appearance by two of the UK’s leading authors, with a small, intimate audience. This will be a 1.5 hour session at £60 a head. An opportunity not to be missed.
