Tuesday 29th August

We had three trips today in mainly grey and mizzly conditions. The wildlife was fantastic again though, and the sun came out for the late afternoon Bay Discovery. This morning we had great views of a lunge feeding minke whale, along with scores of common dolphins, bluefin tuna and seabirds including more Cory’s and great…

It was a chilly grey day today but we had two awesome trips. A bank holiday whale seems to be becoming a bit of a tradition, and we got one today – a very large minke feeding with common dolphins on this morning’s four hour trip. The northerly wind of the last few days seems…

One of them was the spotty one with a nick out  of its fin which we saw yesterday, and another was a really large individual. They were feeding in an area with harbour porpoises, bluefin tuna and lots of…

Wednesday 16th August

We had an amazing couple of trips today – a four hour Discovery Voyage this morning followed by a two hour Bay Discovery this afternoon. There were cetaceans everywhere we looked this morning – we had great views of two minke whales feeding in the bay this morning, who both came very close to the…
