August 23rd & 24th

August 29th, 2019

We had a wonderful trip up the Fal Estuary on Saturday morning as the easterly winds prevented us heading offshore but we still recorded a diversity of wildlife including our first osprey for 2019! We were back out at sea Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday where we had multiple encounters with common dolphins, including a large feeding frenzy with gannets and shearwaters. More tuna were seen as well as lots of HUGE barrel jellyfish close in shore.
