Newquay Harbour Seals...Wild Grey seals from Cornwall spend the day basking in the sun in the calm green waters around Newquay harbour. You can often see them in groups on the rocks around Towan headland.
From the harbour you can take a one hour pleasure trip across the bay, to see Newquay like you've never seen before - from the ocean. You have the option to unwind a Mackerel line hooked on the boat and pull a few in for the barbie - if you haven't tasted fresh caught Cornish Mackerel ... Do it soon.
If you are lucky... You'll see the dolphins in the Bay!
Groups of Dolphins are regular visitors to Newquay Bay.In this picture you can see how close they come in. The boat is the Tamerisk, which offers pleasure trips and Mackerel fishing for an hour. All boat trips, including the deep sea shark & Wreak fishing, can be booked at the harbour and from a few local shops in the harbour area or you can ring. Newquay fishing trips offer shark, wreck and reef fishing.

In modern commercial fishing, the traditional, natural materials have mostly been replaced by plastic, but in Cornwall a few traditional craftsmen still preserve the old skills by continuing to make traditional lobster pots
