July 6th-8th

July 10th, 2018

Well me hearties, it’s Minke Whale magic, Common Dolphins galore, Sunfish breaching, Big Blue Sharks finnning and virtually the whole of Falmouth Bay rippling and breezing with multiple shoals after shoals after shoals of tiny bait fish along with sea surface temperatures over the last few days running at an incredibly high 23:06 degrees Celsius.. pinching myself. I think all I can say is WOW and… there is no better time than now to join me on one of my magical mystery and wildlife extravaganza cruises, with anther truly stunning, calm, gentle, sunny and mirror like glassy seas forecast right through the week ahead and into next weekend. I’m all a buzzzzzz with excitement as potentially with all the bait offshore, one just never know who or what will come in as after Plankton, Bait fish of any shape or form, are the next most vital ingredient in to creating Productive and Exciting Seas. Minke Whales for one I’m sure will come as these tiny inch long possibly baby Pilchard are Minke Whale candy for sure.

Yesterday the Minke Whales, as we were incredibly privileged to observe two, were and always are just a total joy and thrill to behold as we just adore all our Minke Whales and other Cetacean friends. One of the Minke Whale double act gave us all some truly magical close up views. Taking our time to work out its behaviour and stopping here and there during our fabulous and fascinating interaction, we were blessed by this incredibly relaxed sixteen foot Whale, logging right beside us, everyone sucking air and holding their breath in absolute awe and shear amazement. These two lovely individuals bring our Minke Whale total to now a happy nineteen sighted and recorded for 2018 which bodes well for giving us a high total at the end of this season, especially in light of the conditions offshore and these up and coming months being very much Minke Whale months. So it’s certainly exciting times ahead for us all.
