Monday 11th September
We had two Ocean Discovery trips today on a quiet, grey day. On the morning trip we found common dolphins, had great views of harbour porpoises and saw some hunting bluefin tuna. There were also lots of grey seals hauled out on the island. This afternoon everything was rather sleepy – we saw a couple of seals snoozing in the water, then found a small pod of very quiet common dolphins who were intent on resting so we left them to it. We saw good numbers of porpoises, though it was so calm they hardly needed to clear the water in order to breathe. One of those sleepy afternoons!
