Today was the final day of the National Whale and Dolphin Watch week and we were delighted to record lots of common dolphins on both trips as well as a mother and calf harbour porpoise pair in the morning as soon as we’d entered the bay. Excitingly, we have recorded cetaceans on every single trip during this year’s NWDW! Shearwaters are offshore in huge numbers still and recently these large gatherings have also led us to common dolphins and bluefin tuna hunting below and creating a lot of splashing and white water. We saw grey seals along the coast on both trips yesterday, close in on the rocks with their heads just popping up out of the water.
