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.  We provide you with all the equipment you will need to get in the water.  

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

In 2018, 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 all your snorkelling equipment we do ask that you have previous experience of snorkelling and you must be confident to swim in open water.  Due to Covid we have changed how we are running our trips.  We will only be taking out six snorkellers on each trip. The trips start on St Martin's at 09:15 and 13:00.  As there will be no instructor in the water with you our minimum age is twelve and all children must be accompanied by an adult. We are unable to accommodate watchers on the trips.  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!
