Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch is a charity based on the Isle of Man dedicated to the ongoing conservation of our local whale, dolphin and porpoise species, collectively known as cetaceans. We work year round conducting non-invasive research to monitor the health of the cetacean population and their habitat. We also work hard to raise public awareness of these animals which is a vital part to their ongoing conservation.

Very excited to be going out on the boat!!!!! It's been a long time coming. We will be departing Peel around 4ish and will be back around 7. If anyone sees dolphins off the west or south coast please could you phone us on either 330185 or 393496 as we are in need of photo-ID opportunities. Thanks! Keep your eyes peeled this eve as it should be very calm later ... See MoreSee Less

Looking to get in touch with a Neil Barron (sorry if it's miss-spelt) who helps our observer Sue down at the Sound and has seen lots of cetaceans recently. Please send us a private message. 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Lovely flat calm day, perfect for cetacean watching along all coastlines. The wind is expected to drop as the day goes on and the calmest point should be this evening. Risso's dolphins seen again last night off the Calf. Please report any sightings to us 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
