Tuesday 25th July

common dolphins

We had a long day today with two 3 hour Ocean Discovery trips followed by a 2 hour Bay Discovery. We saw lots of common dolphins on all three trips. This morning we saw them feeding with gannets and a little seal popped up with them, joining in with their hunting! We also saw harbour porpoises. This afternoon, as well as the common dolphins, we also had good views of some Risso’s as they cruised slowly inshore and then back out again. Further south among more dolphins and feeding seabirds, we spotted our first bluefin tuna of the season. They were causing a lot of splashing at the surface. And then this evening we saw yet more common dolphins, porpoises and someĀ  grey seals. I’m ready for some dinner now…
