This free, guided land-based Whale Watch, (no boats involved) will be led by Irish Whale and Dolphin Group's Sightings Officer, Padraig Whooley, and is open to anyone with an interest in our marine megafauna. So, if you are living in or visiting the Cork area on Saturday 26th May, we are delighted to invite you to attend this 2-hour event, where IWDG personnel and local wildlife enthusiasts will be on hand to help you observe, identify and record whales, dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks, seabirds and a host of marine wildlife. 

During the watch, there will be plenty of opportunities to chat with like-minded folk about whales, whale watching and cetacean research and conservation in Ireland over the past 25 years. There will be plenty of whale artefacts on display. 

As always, these outdoor events are weather dependent and you should dress for the weather, bring optics and your sense of humour.

We look forward to meeting you there. No bookings necessary.
