A dolphin jumping out of the water

We had two Ocean Discovery boat trips today. On the morning tour we found two pods of common dolphins. The first juvenile pod came racing in to bow ride giving a fantastic encounter. We watched the second group, which was made up of mother’s and calves from a distance initially before they also came over to bow ride. There were grey seals around the island and we had spectacular views of Manx shearwaters, auks and gannets.

In the afternoon we found two puffins looking splendid in their summer plumage. We also had lovely views of seals around the island and saw large hurrys of Manx shearwaters foraging along with gulls and auks.

It was a lovely sailing day out on the water.
