There are all sorts of things to see and do over National Marine Week. Find out more on our events pages, and celebrate our Irish Sea this Summer - with rock pool rambles, dolphin spotting, storytelling and more!
Alongside National Marine Week, we're also raising awareness with our #MarineMudness campaign. Support protected areas of our sea and coast by having some fun at our muddy events. Or have a muddy adventure all of your own - Tweet @LivingSeasNW about your muddy fun with #MarineMudness.
Join us on this walk around Maryport harbour and along the adjacent shoreline to see the marine life and a stunning range of flora including orchids.
