Sea Watch Picnic

Criccieth Castle

Criccieth Castle

Come and join us at Criccieth Castle for a relaxing sea-watch evening, where the local seas are teeming with wildlife throughout the year.

Our staff and volunteers will be on hand to help with pointing out wildlife and identification.

Use our marine binoculars and scopes to look out to sea to try and spot a dolphin, gannet or bobbing seal head. 

Wrap up warmly and don't forget your picnic!
