Have you ever peered into a rock pool and wondered what lies within? Turned over a rock and experienced the joy of discovering a scuttling crab? On a bespoke Rock Pool Project safari one of our friendly guides will safely take you and your family to explore the magical world of the rocky shore.
All of our guides have been expertly trained by Dr Ben Holt, who has studied marine biology all over the world. We pride ourselves on being a passionate, diverse and very knowledgeable team dedicated to teaching others about this spectacular hidden world.
A growing number of studies have shown that interaction with the ocean and other ‘blue spaces’ can have a positive effect on mental health – particularly in terms of stress reduction and well-being. Rock pooling is a wonderfully engaging activity which is outdoors, in nature and beside the sea. The Guardian has an insightful article about the benefits of living near and making the most of blue spaces in such ways.
Sessions can be booked all year round, with timing limited by the tides. We recommend visiting tides4fishing.com to consider times of low tides. The lower the tide the more wildlife we’ll discover in your session.
We have guides based in the Falmouth area. We are blessed with amazing rock pooling sites throughout Cornish coastline and we regularly travel to locations throughout the region. Additional surcharges are applicable to locations that are over 30 minutes drive from our base location.
Suitable footwear and clothing for the condition, as well as sun screen, etc. Further information can be found in our rock pooling guide. There is no need for guide books or cameras as these will be provided by us, but feel free to bring your own if you would like to.
Rocky shores in the South West are the most diverse in the country. We will find many different species of crustaceans and molluscs, beautiful seaweeds, starfish, fish and much much more.
