Local Marine Wildlife Conservation

Sea Trust Wales is a charity committed to studying and raising awareness of local marine wildlife. We are based at the Ocean Lab building in Goodwick, Pembrokeshire.

Our Aquarium is open Saturday – Thursday (closed Fridays) 10:30am – 4:30pm. 

 Our gift shop and cafe are open every day from 10am until 4pm.

Visit us at The Ocean Lab in Goodwick and explore the Sea Môr Aquarium or join one of our Seashore Safaris. Our aquarium tours and safaris are provided by our team of marine biologists. They’re packed full of fun facts, creating an eye-opening experience for all ages.

Visit our new Discovery Room, a free educational exhibit as part of our Discover Môr project. Learn to ID Pembrokeshire’s awesome rockpool life with our Pwll y Môr interactive display, discover the world of tiny creatures using our microscopes, or play in our ocean-themed children’s corner!

There is a council car park at the Ocean Lab or there is a free car park across the road behind Tesco. There is disabled access (wheelchair friendly) to the aquarium, and the ground floor of the cafe & gift shop.  

Please note: Dogs are welcome in our gift shop and cafe, but only service dogs will be allowed in the aquarium.

Adopt a porpoise

When you become a porpoise pal with Sea Trust you are directly contributing to the conservation of Pembrokeshire’s porpoises and our local marine environment.

Projects & Research

The Sea Trust is currently running three main projects: the Porpoise photo-ID project, where images of individual porpoise are used to study their population and ecology; Recycle Mor, which recycles end of the line fishing gear into useful everyday products; and FINtastic Fauna which trains volunteers to become citizen scientists and record marine wildlife around the Pembrokeshire coast as well as raises awareness around the community about the wildlife they have on their doorstep.

Education & Outreach

Our Education and Outreach work is extremely important to us. We aim to increase awareness of Pembrokeshire’s wonderful marine life and improve accessibility to Pembrokeshire’s marine world. We work with schools and community groups to offer education and outreach. We are able to host school and group visits at Ocean Lab for aquarium tours and seashore safaris, as well as visiting schools and groups to run sessions on marine conservation.

Wildlife Sightings

Sea Trust’s Community Sightings Network encourages residents, local wildlife enthusiasts and visitors to report their sightings of whales, dolphins and porpoises to the Sea Trust. This information is very useful in understanding where and when particular species occur.
