Private Rock Pooling Session

Autumn Private Sessions

Top-rated UK citizen science trip by the Guardian!

Private rock pooling available during the autumn.

Make your trip to the beach an unforgettable experience! Book yourself one of our friendly and knowledgeable rock pool experts and take part in our acclaimed marine wildlife research project.

During your private rock pooling session, you will learn all about the incredibly diverse Cornish coastline and how to discover the fascinating species that are revealed by the tides. All the species you spot will be photographed using one of our waterproof cameras, and these images will provide a record that will be checked by our experts and submitted to the National Biodiversity Network. A personalised report of the day’s activity, including the images and details of your finds, will be emailed to each participant following the event.

Sessions can be tailored to suit adults or families and are suitable for complete beginners through to avid rock pooling fans.

Prices: From £58 for a 90-minute session for up to eight people, in the Falmouth area. 

We can also travel to other amazing Cornish rock pooling sites, including spots within walking distance of our hotel, for an additional surcharge.

Session times are tide dependent and subject to the availability of our experts. Local tide times and heights can be viewed here. Be aware that the best conditions for discovering rock pool wildlife occur on the lowest of the low tides. Tide heights under 1.6m are ideal but we are happy to organise high shore sessions as well. Sessions are allocated on a first come first served basis.
