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.

Happy Sunday everyone. We just wanted to let you know that we are going away tomorrow for 2 weeks, but we will still be running the charity remotely. Please continue to report any sightings but bear with us in terms of a reply to any enquiries. Keep an eye out for the return of the Risso's dolphins, they should arrive any day now. ...

Finally got around to giving our display cabinet at Fenella a spring clean with a nice, bright display to inform locals and visitors of the wonders seen in Manx waters. ... See MoreSee Less
