Wednesday 5th July

common dolphin

We had a four hour trip followed by a three hour today, so very busy. This morning we had amazing sightings in generally good conditions, apart from one dramatic squall which swept through when we were further west. We saw lots of Risso’s dolphins in two separate locations, and also multiple groups of common dolphins. We also saw several grey seals and had good views of an ocean sunfish. This afternoon we went a long way west and south, but everything seemed to have moved on, until we were found by a single Risso’s dolphins. This was a beautiful four metre, almost completely white animals which surfed around us for a while. It was a fab encounter. A little further off we saw more fins, but they were shyer. We also saw grey seals and seabirds.
