RobinSunsetWelcome from TheWhaleandDolphinMan!

This site highlights my work as a cetacean naturalist, presenter and speaker, a wildlife and whale watching boat skipper and photographer.

It also features information about the study and protection of whales and dolphins in the UK and the work of Sea Watch Foundation which is the leading cetacean research charity in the UK. There are also links to my Dolphinspotter project and International Dolphin Watch. You will also discover how to enjoy wildlife and whale watching trips with Whitby Whale Watching off the beautiful Yorkshire Coast and with recommended operators elsewhere in the world.

You can also now book me for entertaining and educational whale and dolphin or marine conservation talks and/or training for your group or society. Costs for small groups start at £75 plus travel expenses.
