With huge seas inside the Carrick Roads and 40 knot winds, we spent both of our trips this weekend up the rich and sheltered Fal Esturay where in places the water resembled a mill pond – such a contrast! We had a couple of really lovely trips, slowly exploring up the miles of diverse creeks and recording a variety of wildlife including two species of deer, and stayed dry under our fabulous new awning.
We still have spaces over the Easter weekend, including our first 7 hour Pelagic and Cetacean Cruise for 2019 on Sat 20th April, and with the forecast set to improve vastly in a couple of days, we’re really excited to get back out offshore!! Please visit our website for more information and get your bookings in soon to avoid disappointment http://www.akwildlifecruises.co.uk/.
