Monday 24th June

common dolphin leaping

It was a long day today with a four hour trip followed by a three hour. This morning it was quiet for over two hours, with a few rafts of shearwaters and some gannets spotted, before we found a large pod of common dolphins a long way offshore. We also saw an ocean sunfish and a grey seal hauled out. This afternoon things had moved inshore a bit, with small groups of dolphins spotted throughout the trip, another ocean sunfish, some grey seals and loads of soaring shearwaters. It was so calm today there wasn’t an awful lot of sailing done, however this did make for some lovely calm spotting conditions!
