Friday 17th May

minke whale

We had a great couple of trips today in almost unbroken sunshine and on calm seas. On the morning Discovery Voyage we saw two minke whales, an juvenile followed later by a large adult feeding with lots of common dolphins and seabirds. This was the first big feeding frenzy we have seen so far this season. We had a lovely time watching it all unfold, and some of the dolphins came to inspect us as well. We also saw some grey seals, including sadly a couple of dead ones who looked as though they had drowned in tangle nets. They were being scavenged by gulls. The two hour passengers were also lucky enough to spot seals and lots more common dolphins.
