Manx Whale and Dolphin Visitor's Centre to open this month

Fri, 18 Jan 2019

The Isle of Man is to get its first ever visitors’ centre devoted to the marine mammals found around the coastline.

The Manx Whale and Dolphin Visitor Centre, on Michael Street in Peel, will hold its official opening on Saturday, January 26, 10am-4pm.

The centre will open most days from 10am to 4pm, providing information about the many species of porpoises, whales and dolphins which can be found in Manx waters.

It will also serve as the official headquarters of the Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch charity, which helps the public identify the animals they spot as well as contribute towards our understanding of these creatures.

Part-funded by the Manx Lottery Trust and sponsored by Sure, the centre will provide displays to help people recognise and understand the rich variety of wildlife to be found off our coast.
