Continued from the Not 1 but 5 Minke Whale blog…
We headed a little further out after seeing the last Minke and we passed 2 Sooty Shearwaters a few more Manx Shearwaters and then nothing. We only saw a few passing Gannets but that was it, until we had 2 White Beaked Dolphins arrive from nowhere. They played with the bow of the boat for 2 minutes but then disappeared.
We looked around a bit more and we were just about to give up and go home when in the distance we saw few Gannets starting to dive and then we saw a few Dolphins jump clean out of the water.
As we looked more and more turned up. There was a least 40+ heading straight for us.
They seemed to be really excited to see us, as they ignore the fish the Gannets were diving for. At first we were not moving and they seemed to get bored straight away but the second I started to move the boat that’s when they got excited and started to entertain us.
This is one hell of a sight and it gives you is real buzz inside.
To be so close to this was just amazing and for them to put a real show on for us made it even more spacial.
I was excited, the guests were excited and even Bud my trusty Collie was excited to as you can hear him.
Over all this was by far the best trip this year so enjoy the pictures and some video footage.
