Overview

At Gower Coast Adventures we share a love for the Gower coastline, it’s wildlife, and it’s history.

With 15 years experience of navigating these waters, we know every cave, cove and bay, along with their intriguing stories. We know where the seals will be snoozing, the porpoises feeding, and the sea birds nesting.Our passion for our local marine species and habitats brings with it a detailed knowledge of Gower’s wildlife from where to look for dolphins, to which cliffs to scan for perching peregrines, and also a deep desire to protect it.

On every trip we combine sensitive wildlife observation with the thrill of feeling the sea breeze on your face as we glide across the water, and hope to convey our enthusiasm for our peninsula home with all our passengers.

 Trips

We run regular 2-hour wildlife spotting trips, or you can book the whole boat for private trips.

Oxwich Bay to Worms Head (and back)
Approx. 2 hours

£45 per adult / £25 per child (3 to 15 years old)

Experience fantastic wildlife encounters on our round trip from beautiful Oxwich Bay to magnificent Worms Head, the tidal island at the western tip of Gower.

Along the way we hug the coastline taking in Gower’s stunning scenery from a unique perspective.

Listen to stories about historic caves and smugglers haunts.

Keep an eye out for the regularly seen harbour porpoise and playful common dolphins amongst diving gannets.

At Worms Head delight in the sights and sounds of hundreds of seabirds during nesting season.

Watch seals basking on the rocks or dozing in the water, and the chance to experience the spectacular blowhole at high tide.

What to expect when you arrive:

Sign in at our booking office at least 30 mins before your departure time. Our staff will use this time to kit up passengers with waterproofs and lifejackets.

Please ensure that warm clothing is worn underneath waterproofs and bring footwear that can get wet (beach shoes, crocs, sandals etc).

Passengers will be lead to the waters edge by a member of crew where they will walk into the sea to knee depth and then step up to board the boat. Please note, at low tide it is a longer walk, the step up to the boat is knee height and crew are there to assist passengers.
