WOW, WOW, WOW!!! It was sheer joy and excitement at every turn, as we were all treated to a magnificent diversity of outstanding and incredibly beautiful wildlife!! All in blue skies and lovely calm seas! Sighting and interacting with two different species of Dolphins, with a pod of six, big, bold and beautiful RISSO’S DOLPHINS inshore and later on offshore! Some hijinks and excitement from those ever friendly and incredibly playful smaller dear little Common Dolphins, who couldn’t help themselves but to rush over to play on Free Spirit’s bow, bringing joy and happiness to everyone on board! To name but a few, as the overall diversity of wildlife was absolutely fascinating!! A fun-filled, magical and very exciting day was shared by all!!

6 Risso’s Dolphins, 9 Common Dolphins, 2 SOOTY SHEARWATERS, 22 STORM PETRELS, Lots of Manx Shearwaters continually passing through, and several big feeding aggregations numbering hundreds of birds, Gannets, Guillemots, Fulmars, Common Scoters, Mediterranean Gulls, Peregrine Falcons, adults and juveniles giving us all a truly fabulous aerial display and vocally audible presence, music to all our ears, Kestrel, Atlantic Grey Seal, Swallows, Egrets, Herons, Mute Swan with seven cygnets ahhh.
