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.

Hi everyone, just a heads up for those who have reported a Minke whale/Bottlenose dolphin sighting to our website, we haven't forgotten about you! It's taking us a while to trawl through the many reports we have received and collate them as best as possible, ensuring no repeats are made. Hope to get all sightings live on the recent sightings list by the end of the week. Cheers 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
