Frequently asked questions:

When are sessions available?

Sessions can be booked all year round, with timing limited by the tides. We recommend visiting to consider times of low tides. The lower the tide the more wildlife we’ll discover in your session.

Where do sessions take place?

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.

What equipment will we need?

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.
