Wednesday 30th August

common dolphin

It was dolphin soup out there today, with masses of common dolphins almost everywhere we went. We started the day with a four hour trip and headed along the coast first to have a look at the sights before heading offshore. With the dolphins we found all the shearwaters we see apart from Balearics – Manxes, greats, sootys and Cory’s. There were also some enormous tuna feeding among the dolphins, as well as some grumpy looking seals on the rocks and in the water. On the afternoon Bay Discovery we had some very young guests who were extremely well behaved and they were rewarded with some awesome common dolphin encounters. The dolphins had moved into the bay by this time and were feeding with shearwaters, kittiwakes, gannets and common terns.
