Join the Brighton Dolphin Project on our 2-hour wildlife watching boat trip to the new Rampion Wind Farm!
The 116 turbines are more than 8 miles offshore from Brighton and it takes about 45 minutes to get there. Our boat will enter the windfarm array field for approximately 20 minutes of slow cruising amongst the massive turbines.
Panoramic views of the Sussex coast can be seen on the way back to Brighton Marina when we will learn about and hopefully see some of our amazing marine wildlife in the sea off Brighton. Whilst sightings of dolphins and sharks are occasional, we often see interesting seabirds including Gannets, Fulmars, and Kittiwakes, as well as jellyfish, fishes, and other weird and wonderful sea creatures!
The cruise will leave from Brighton Marina promptly at the allocated start time. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the cruise is set to begin.
All proceeds from the trip directly fund the Brighton Dolphin Project. The project (part of the registered charity World Cetacean Alliance) studies the local dolphin population and works with local communities to better understand and protect our unique marine natural heritage!

You’ll have a whale of a time!
