With wonderful sea conditions, we headed straight out to sea on our morning trip in search of offshore and pelagic animals. We passed hundreds and hundreds of Manx shearwaters on the way, including lots sat on the water in huge rafts, as well as a few sooty shearwaters among them, and several bluefin tuna busting out of the water. But it wasn’t until we came back into Falmouth Bay that we finally found some common dolphins! There were quite a few mother-calf pairs in these groups. We also recorded our first resident bottlenose dolphin for this year, a large adult, just off St Anthony’s lighthouse in the afternoon, who was leaping out of the water and came over to say hello.
Spaces are available for next week and it’s looking drier than today so please phone us if you would like to book.
