MARINElife Day Trips now available with Condor Ferries
Condor Ferries is pleased to introduce a number of MARINElife Day Trips to the Channel Islands, offering passengers the opportunity to marvel in the marine mammals and seabirds in the English Channel for an unforgettable day out on the water.
Marinelife conduct monthly surveys onboard Condor Ferries fast and conventional ferries running to Jersey and Guernsey. Over the past few months a wide variety of marine life and seabirds have been sighted from the ferries sailing departing Weymouth from Common Dolphin, Harbour Porpoise and Minke Whale, to Great Skua, Manx shearwater and Gannet. In total, since surveys began at the start of 2014
21 different seabird species have been recorded.
To make the most of this wonderful wildlife, Condor Ferries will be introducing weekly MARINElife day trip sailings to Guernsey throughout July and August. With a Wildlife Officer on-board, birdwatchers, marine enthusiasts and nature novices alike, will have the chance to discover the various species in both air and sea, learn more about how to spot and identify species making for the perfect day out for all the family.
MARINElife is a UK based research, education and conservation charity conducting year round scientific surveys of whales, dolphins and seabirds.
Alicia Andrews, Sales & Marketing Director at Condor Ferries, commented: “We’re delighted to introduce the MARINElife Day Trips to Guernsey this summer, and offer our passengers this fascinating experience. There is a wealth of wildlife just waiting to be discovered on our sailing routes, and with a Wildlife Officer on board the trip will not only be enjoyable but also informative. We hope all our wildlife watching day trippers have a wonderful day out and are delighted that these trips will also help to raise funds for MARINElife to continue this important work.”
