Falmouth Bay has come alive in the past few days with hundreds of common dolphins, large pods of hunting harbour porpoises, breaching bluefin tuna and a couple of minke whales. We’ve also seen a diversity of seabirds including Balearic, sooty and Manx shearwaters, gannets and fulmars, as well as high numbers of grey seals around the coastline. We’ve also had some amazing encounters with the enormous and beautifully coloured tuna, built like torpedos, with many full body breaches and a lot of splashing. They were also seen feeding among common dolphins for a nice size comparison.
