Watching for wildlife with Condor Ferries

Join one of our Wildlife Officers aboard Condor Ferries Liberation looking for marine mammals and seabirds that can be found in the English Channel between Poole to Guernsey. Our Wildlife Officer (WLO) will be on deck offering help and guidance on how to spot the many different species of marine wildlife that may be seen.

Passengers enjoying a sighting

On our arrival in Guernsey you will have around 3.5 hours to explore St Peter Port, with its cobbled streets and picturesque seafront marina and historic gardens, before we make the return crossing back to Poole looking for more wildlife.

The wildlife day trip is excellent value and is kindly provided and supported by Condor Ferries who will donate £5 to MARINElife for every ticket sold.
