Seabird & Whale Trip Report 17th July

  • Sun 18th Jul, 2021

More amazing Bottle-nosed Dolphin action today on our YCN Seabird and Whale Trip today. The skipper of All My Sons Sean Baxter did a great job parking the boat on an inshore line and waiting for the Dolphins to find us. Out came the coffee and cake, we were all ready for a waiting game gently drifting on the tide. Shortly afterwards the boat was surrounded by Dolphins on a gorgeous flat sea.  Dolphins must love the smell of coffe and cake!
