Talks

Our main talk, ‘Manx Marine Mega Monsters’ has received a very positive response from many groups and organisations over the years. It talks briefly about the origins of Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch and the species found here, before talking about some of the amazing marine megafauna in Manx waters and how to recognise each species. We give talks to groups, clubs, organisations and elsewhere. Please get in touch if you would like us to talk to your group, but note that we usually are only available to give talks during the winter.

Public events

Throughout the year we appear at public events with our popular stall.  As we are dedicated to raising awareness amongst the public, this is one of our key resources, enabling us to reach out to locals and tourists alike and educating them on the wonders they can see from our coastline. We have discovered that the majority of people we talk to, including those who live on the island, were previously unaware that you can see whales, dolphins and porpoises here.

Our experienced team will be on hand to teach you everything you might want to know about cetaceans. You will find information on the species seen here, a selection of merchandise to buy, as well as children’s activities and competitions.

Keep an eye on our events page for details of upcoming stalls and please pop over for a chat on the day.

School visits

Our education officer enjoys visiting schools to run interactive lessons to a variety of age groups. We can tailor make activities to suit any age group, ability and interest. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a visit.

We would like to thank the following organisations for supporting our work through financial support and partnerships:
