IWDG Cape Clear Whale-Watching Weekend courses

21st May 2012 Report III, 21/05/12

We've just had a 3 person cancellation for this weekend's IWDG Whale Watching course on Cape Clear, which leaves us with some additional places on this weekend's course. If you are interested in a late booking, we'd be happy to offer places at the member's rate of €70p/p.

Further good news is that we have secured whale watch expert Colin Barnes for the Saturday 26th May pelagic trip (weather permitting). Colin has featured on wildlife programmes such as "Wild Trials", "Wild Journeys", and BBC Autumnwatch. This is great news as if there are whales in the area, Colin will find them. So fingers crossed on the weather front

The course fee is €70 p/p, which includes tuition, guided land-based watches, a years IWDG membership and a resource pack. Deposit of €25 per person, payable to the IWDG to: IWDG, Dereen, Rossmore, Clonakilty, Co. Cork.

Report II, 12/05/12
There are still a few spaces left on this month's May 25-27th Whale Watching weekend course on Cape Clear Island, West Cork. This is the 1st in our summer series of popular Cape courses and with plenty of basking shark, common dolphin and minke whale activity in the area, it holds out the promise of some lovely sightings and a really good learning experience among like-minded people. Bookings or enquiries to padraig.whooley@iwdg.ie or Ph. 023-8838761

Report I, 30/04/12
IWDG are delighted to announce another series of our popular whale watching weekend courses this summer 2012 on Cape Clear Island, Co. Cork on May 25-27th, July 20-22nd & Sept. 7-9th. Please note that places are filling up quite fast as of 22/03/12 on all 3 weekends, so if interested get in touch with us sooner rather than later.

As always IWDG has offered first refusal and a preferential rate (€70) to current IWDG members, and places are already being secured by deposits. So if interested, please book sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment, as these weekends are typically over-subscribed.
