The Rock pool project

Discover the magic of rock pools with us

We are a not-for-profit community interest company, passionate about connecting people of all ages and backgrounds to the incredible wildlife found around our coastline.

Our expert marine biologists offer bespoke, private rock pool safaris – including a personalised rock pooling report!

We also offer educational seashore safaris for school and we can bring the marine wildlife to you with our innovative mobile rock pool or live, interactive virtual rock pooling!

Our activities contribute to our ongoing research programme. Why not join our growing community of citizen scientists and explore the best rock pooling sites in Cornwall and Devon?
