Would you and your team like to do more to protect Brighton’s little piece of ocean? Many Brighton businesses and individuals feel a close connection to the sea – for many of us it’s a big part of why we live here! But few are aware of the diversity of wildlife under the waves or the threats to its existence.

The Brighton Dolphin Project aims to improve awareness about of local marine ecosystems and species across Sussex. We are also the first to study our dolphins – an essential first step towards protecting them and the places they live.

To achieve this we need your help – and we also want to help you! That’s why we would like to invite you to become a Brighton Dolphin Supporter. Join us and we will get you and your team out on the water, discovering marine wildlife and seeing Brighton as you have never seen it before. We’d also like to help you to become more ocean friendly as a business – at a pace that suits you.


By becoming a ‘Brighton Dolphin Supporter’, you will be contributing towards:

  • Research into local dolphin populations through our Public Sightings Database and photo-identification catalogue;

  • Keeping plastics out of the oceans through beach clean ups and awareness campaigns;

  • Public education through our Dolphin Discovery Centre about marine life and conservation, as well as onboard our wildlife cruises;

  • Local School visits to take children on a fascinating journey into our oceans, so that they feel inspired to take action towards conservation.


By becoming a Brighton Dolphin Supporter, your business can enjoy the following benefits:


  • Boat trip! Up to 20 places on one of our expertly guided boat trips from Brighton Marina to the West Pier, to see and hear about the natural treasures just off our coast;

  • Beach clean! Do something practical about the local litter problem with our team building beach cleans;

  • Rockpooling! Take a fun morning or afternoon out of the office, getting up close and personal with life on our rocky shores.

  • Virtual dolphin watching! We take you dolphin watching without getting your feet wet with our fully guided 360 degree VR experience!


  • A Dolphin Supporter certificate for display;

  • Updates about the project and news on Brighton’s dolphins;

  • Staff presentation – either at your office or at the Brighton Dolphin Discovery Centre;

  • Free bespoke advice on small changes you can make as a business that will help protect marine wildlife locally and globally;

  • Opportunity to meet other Dolphin Supporter businesses at our annual gathering.
