Come to St Martin's for a fabulous, award winning, wildlife experience. Snorkel with the seals and get close to these elegant creatures in their natural environment.  All the equipment you will need is supplied and you don't require any previous experience.

We have been running snorkelling with seals trips for over 20 years, and are accredited WiSe (Wildlife Scheme) operators.

In 2017, we were delighted to be presented with a Silver Award in the Activity and Sporting Experience of the Cornwall Tourism Awards. The seal snorkelling trips are run from Higher Town, St Martin’s and last approximately three hours.  We provide wetsuits and snorkelling equipment and no experience of snorkelling is required.  All we say is that you must be confident to swim in open water.  There will be a diving instructor present to guide and assist you. The minimum age for children snorkelling is eight, children as young as six can come out to watch from the boat and all children need to be accompanied by an adult.  Watching the seals swim gracefully and effortlessly in their natural environment is a fabulous wildlife experience – they may even come close enough to nibble at your fins!
