National Whale and Dolphin Watch 2022

UK Wide

A staggering 30 species of whale and dolphin have been recorded in our waters, more than a quarter of the entire British mammal fauna but despite this there is little awareness in the UK of the tremendous diversity of whales, dolphins and porpoises to be found around our shores. The aim of Sea Watch's National Whale and Dolphin Watch is to give a general “snapshot” of what can be seen in UK coastal waters over a short period of time. The beauty of this citizen science event is that anyone who is in the UK during this time can be involved! So, whether you are planning a trip to the coast, travelling on a ferry in UK waters, sailing for fun, or just near the coast – you will have the perfect opportunity to take part! We are looking for people to conduct organised watches or events all around the coast but incidental sightings are also always welcome!
